Initially, I was less than thrilled with the idea of hitting a Halloween party last night. Various events had conspired to force me into a non-social mood, and the thought of going somewhere was less than happy. But we had our costumes; we had the booze; we were going. touchstone
dragged me out of the house for a walk which upped my mood and generally jollied me up.
Halloween costumes this year were courtesy of a last minute flash of inspiration followed by $5.00 at the thrift store. Hurrah for very cheap costuming. I only wish I could have found really really cheap boots to go with the outfit I found; alas.
(Note to self: you are still allergic to aqua-paint makeup. Do not try it; stick with the greasepaint, damnit.)
Makeup came out passably well (see outlawcoon
's post for pictures), and then we were off to the party which turned out to be exactly what I needed. butterinthesun
and J's house is utterly lovely, and there was a small enough number of folks present that I could relax. Got some good conversation in, had some wonderful pumpkin cheesecake, and got to chat with friends I don't get to see often enough. (Brunch. It works great; I should do it more often with folks.)
Came home, had some bad pizza, some more water, and then passed out until receiving the sprogling this morning. So, yeah. Good Halloween stuff. I was pleased.
