I've got the official go-ahead from Mr. ShellHawk to go to West Coast Haunters Convention this year to represent Hauntcast and to bring some of my Hallowe'en ceramics along to sell. Of course, many of you ladies realize this is a fine opportunity to shop for new things, especially because I'm going as a "public figure" (insert raucous laughter here). I mean, I can't just show up in any old thing, now, can I? I'd disappoint my adoring fans! (At WCHC, I believe that's the Davises and possibly the Bloodshed Brothers... :oD)
So I've been trolling the 'net for some fun stuff to wear, mostly because my Hauntcast t-shirt makes me look like a frumpy housewife because it's made for boys. Since I'm losing weight, it'll look even more tent-like by the time June rolls around. I do plan to take the t-shirt over to my local alterations place to have it taken in, but I still can't miss out on the retail therapy I get to indulge in, right?
Take these wonderful pumps, for instance:
These are all kind of costume ball fabulous-ness, aren't they? You can pick them up on sale at Starlets and Harlots. If you like boots, you can find the same basic design at Sinister Soles:
If you prefer a little color and a touch of Steampunk, you might like these Metropolis: Ripley shoes:
Of course, you can't have the heels without the dress:
Though I love the dress, it's a little spendy for me right now. *sigh* Maybe this one is a bit more in my league:
I couldn't get a pic of this dress from Pinup Girl Clothing, but you'll see why I think I should have it. I would get something like this for evening, but I'm having an attack of the over-40-insecurity and I don't want to embarrass myself!
Oh, well. There's plenty of time to decide, right? And another ten or twenty pounds, too...
