The FUN part of the costume ... where I act like a complete dork. As is usual.

The fangs in all their $14.99 glory.
You have to melt this plastic-wax stuff and then mold it onto your teeth.
They actually stay in pretty well.

They kinda freak Bucket out a little. Heh heh heh.

So, here's a close up.
Doesn't it look like I'm checking to see if I have anything (spinach, clotted blood, etc.) in my teeth?

Finally! I manage to smile with fangs!
And showing fangs.

They are a little sharp, you see.

RAWR!! I'm a vampire!

And now I've got the "Time Warp" song stuck in my head.
It's just a jump to the left.
And then a step to the RI-I-I-I-IGHT!
With your hand on your hip
you bring your knees in ti-i-ight!
But it's the pelvic thrusts
that really drive you INSA-A-A-A-ANE!!!
Let's do the Time Warp again!

And, yes, I'm aware that I (as a good girl) should not know that song nor its accompanying musical. And, even if I knew the song, I should deny that knowledge.

But I'm just not that good, I suppose.

If I could get hold of a DVD of the TV version of it, I'd watch it, like, ALL THE TIME.
I friggin' LOVE it.

(The reason that I have it stuck in my head is due to yet another misheard song lyric. The ACTUAL lyrics in that song go "I remember doing the time warp ...", but I've always heard it as "I'm a vampire, doing the time warp...". Yeah, must be some wishful thinking. And, YES, I did only just learn, like two seconds ago, that I was mishearing the lyrics. At least I found out MYSELF this time, instead of having it pointed out to me. *sigh*)

But, the fangs are not all of my costume. I figure that I'll do some Goth-y type makeup and black nail polish (mostly because I like black nail polish) and dress like a (extra curvy) high-schooler with lots of glitter.

On Halloween, though, I'll have about the same get-up (maybe more everyday makeup) and use some seamstress chalk to write "Don't ask me to SPARKLE" on my shirt.

Or maybe I'll just steal Bucket's Snow White headband and go as UNDEAD SNOW WHITE.

Or something.

I love the "don't ask me to sparkle." That's a great idea.

I understand the misheard lyrics. I've been singing "high hopes" as "high apple pie in the sky hopes" for years. Also, as a kid, my favorite movie was "Peach Dragon" instead of Pete's Dragon.
