My Halloween Weekend: From Zombie to Eleven
Halloween is always one of my favorite nights of the year to go out. I love seeing everybody's creativity and festiveness.
For the past seven years I've participated in the Zombie Walk with a dance group that performs Michael Jackson's "Thriller." This year was no exception. It was the first year it rained and my feet were very wet inside my old tattered boots that I only keep for zombie purposes, but it didn't stop me from bustin' a move.
Here is video of us at the beginning of the parade.
Then it was time to go home, dry off, and move on to the next costume. Or in my case turn my zombie dress inside out and add some accessories.
So loved Stranger Things on Netflix. So good. Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown was definitely the breakout star (besides Barb). And my Halloween inspiration.
So I took my pink zombie dress, cut it a bit shorter, turned it inside out, added a blue Members Only jacket that I found at a thrift store for $6, a cheap blond wig, a pair of converse, and striped tube socks borrowed from a friend and I was set. And then the piece de resistance, was my waffle purse! I already had a small purse so I put it inside a frozen waffle box and presto change-o, waffle purse! If none of that makes sense to you then you really should watch Stranger Things.
