Those of you who guessed that the reason why I posted pics of Mrs. Roper the other day because that's who I was going as for Halloween - get yourself a cookie and a gold star because you are correct!! Take a gander at the totally Mrs. Roper approved getup below:

Hehehe, how ugly is this thing? This could have only been better if it was made out of a silky, flowing material AND if it would have had the really big bell bottom sleeves. However, for $6 - - - That'll do Donkey, that'll do!

Some gaudy rings I got.

These two are actually pretty cool!

Some clunky bracelets - how perfect do they match the caftan???

The earrings. Butterfly's were totally in in the 70's, right??

The necklaces, and if you look closely Dinky is getting a closer look at them.

She is still checking them out - such a nosey little thang!

The closest I could come to a wig was a Lucile Ball one. It isn't perfect, but I'm going to see if I can make it work. And I already checked - red is definitely NOT my color, at all...........AT ALL!!! lol

My sister and her husband are throwing a huge Halloween costume party this weekend at their house and obviously this is my costume. So what are your plans for Halloween? What are you going as?

Brilliant! What a great costume that will be. I was thinking of Three's Company the other day at work because of this gaudy caftan that went out to the regular racks.
Post pictures!!

How fun! What a great costume! I totally watched that all the time growing up, although there was a time period that my parents said it was too "adult" for me to watch!

Pinkginger said...

Haha! I LOVE it! I'm going as "church lady" a la Dana Carvey. "Well isn't that special?"

Oh you will look just lovely! Haha! You'll look nice and gaudy in that get up. You have to post pictures right away. Play with your makeup and you might be able to pull off that red makeup.
