The Big Wicked Online Pageant

Because I’m feeling Halloweeny (lucky Halloweeny! *ba dum tish*), today I’m taking part in Beckeye’s Big Wicked Online Pageant, which, as I choose to understand it, is kinda like a costume contest AND a time machine all globbed deliciously together in a Phish Food Ice Cream-esque way.

(Mmmmmmm…. ice cream-esque….)

Beckeye’s rules say I’m supposed to show off a photo of a costume from a Halloween past and post it here today—and then if I am truly a rock star and some people vote for me and stuff, I might win (*fingers crossed*) an actual prize!


[If you too want to participate or vote for me (*batting eyelashes*) or if you just wanna read the non-Coraified version of the rules, you can do so HERE AT THIS LINK.]

Okay, so I couldn’t make up my mind on which picture to post. So, I’m giving you two. (Two.) (Two costumes in one.)




No, no, no—I’m not cheating! Really! I’m just indecisive! I mean, asking me to pick just ONE picture is like asking me to eat just ONE Hershey’s Kiss! It just ain’t gonna happen, people, ‘kay?!


So, shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone I posted two pictures. That’ll be our little secret, just you and me. And when you go over to Beckeye’s blog to vote for me (hint, hint) just erase from your mind whichever picture of mine you like least and only remember the one you like most, okidoki? Cool.

So, here we go.

My first picture is from Halloween 1982. I was ten and my mom made this costume for me because I begged her alllllllllllllllll Summer lonnnnngggggg for it….

Yeah. I was Ms. Pac-Man. And your point is….?

My second picture is from Halloween 2006. I was—uhhh—30-something-ish and, inheriting my mom’s talent for making ridiculous costumes by hand, I made it myself….

I called it “A Safari Gone Bad”. Basically, I was wearing a safari shirt and hat, I was inside a huge cooking pot I made out of felt which was being held into the air by a monkey. My legs were actually inside the monkey’s legs, so when I walked around it appeared the monkey was the one walking and carrying me around in a cooking pot. Not too shabby, eh? ;-)

Okay, so that’s it. Please visit Beckeye’s blog at the link above, check out the other bloggers participating, and then vote your Halloween-lovin’ guts out!

Go! Go! GO!!!!

BeckEye said...

Ms. Pac Man is awesome.

Girl, you were supposed to email me with your link! You're lucky I'm on top of shit...for once. :)

All the links will be up tomorrow once all the contestants are in. Hopefully, there will be many, but who knows.

Great costumes both!

@ Beckeye: I know! I tried to email it to you, but then my 'puter decided it hates me again and froze and acted like an ass. I've had to restart it TWICE this morning. *sniffle* :-(

I'm your Huckleberry.

Fickle Cattle said...

You have the best costumes ever.

Anonymous said...

your safari costume has always been my favorite of yours!

Fancy Schmancy said...

OMG, I love both of them!

Some Guy said...

Those are awesome!

Damn it, Cora! How are we supposed to choose between your 10 y.o. bad ass self and your 30-something(ish) bad ass self?

Thanks a LOT! ; )

Kate said...

Oh, my gosh. These are awesome. I may be stealing that safari idea for next year.

That one of you in the cook pot is one of the best costumes I have ever seen. Hand-made you say? I would totally exploit your sewing ability if we lived closer. You should make costumes all year round just so I could have a really cool one for that one night a year.
