Then came Saturday night. I attended a Halloween in July themed Birthday Party. I didn’t make anything new, but I did have to narrow down my decisions of what I would wear. Obviously, I wanted to wear one of my character costumes, but which one. I eliminated all of the summery ones first given that the part was scheduled for a wintery Brisbane evening. The next step was to take out the big ones that would take up too much room as the party was to be held at a rather small townhouse. I ummed and ahhed over which one to wear, but it wasn’t until Saturday afternoon that I finally made the decision- Mrs Lovett. I had completely forgotten that I had the costume as it hadn’t been worn for years and was packed away in a box. My only dilemma was that when I previously wore the costume, I styled my own hair, which is now short, white and pink and completely unsuitable for the costume. I ended up using my Georigan Hedgehog wig, by tamping down the curls with a heap of pins and pushing it into shape, I was able to get what I wanted. Best of all, it will all bounce back into shape for me the next time I want to do Georgian.
