Yesterday, instead of writing about Kristin Lavrensdatter like I needed to, since it’s time for part 1 wrap-up posts, I unpacked and put out all of our DVDs (nearly 300 titles!), music, and of course my books. Then I made my Halloween costume.
I wanted to be the character “9” from the movie of the same name, an animated post-apocalypse story about a small group of soft robots who are fighting to survive the same terrible machine that assisted in the destruction of human civilization.
My costume, while not being exactly what I had envisioned (I had high hopes for a great deal of burlap…!) turned out well and throughout my shift at the theater (where we were playing 9, incidentally) I got a lot of good comments. The zipper, of which I am particularly proud, made it through a costume party at the Lompoc, and the nearly hurricane force winds and sudden rain that plagued the night. I’m going to hang it somewhere in my house – I discovered that giant zippers are really visually interesting! 🙂
Here’s another really visually interesting thing – click for a bigger image if you want to really peruse the shelves!
Nonsensical ramblings about Kristin Lavrensdatter coming soon, I promise… Maybe after I finish this Bloody Mary. 🙂
