And now, a tribute to wackyness....

Halloween is fun... here is my faery costume (made by me), and fun green hair:

what can be more fun that corsets? (also used in a halloween costume later)

Adventures in hair dye.. Bleached highlights and bubblegum pink under the back
(need to find a picture of the finished product, though... circa... January 2008)

And now... the Bin Bag Party!

The Story:
In 2001 I did a semester abroad at the Univerisy of Auckland, in New Zealand..
After the semester ended, I had a couple of weeks to travel around. I decided
to sign up with this company called "Kiwi Experience".. Basically
what it is, is that they have set bus routes scheduled all over the country.
You can buy a pass that will let you go along any of a number of routes, getting
on and off the bus as you like.. If you decide to stay someplace longer, you
just hop the next bus that comes through when you're ready to leave. Anyways,
on the South Island route I decided on, there's an area down at the arse end
of the country where, when you get near it, they tell you to make any phone
calls you need to before going on because there's no cell phone reception for
2 days worth of driving, at least. Also, there's actually only 1 place the bus
stops, with one place to stay (others usually had options). Since there is pretty
much nothing else to do, someone started a tradition a long time back... the
Bin Bag party. Everyone is given 1 bag to turn into a costume. There is a dollar
store nearby, I believe, where accessories can be bought, if desired. There
is a costume contest (1 girl winner, 1 guy winner), plenty of drinking, and
lots of fun had by all.. perhaps too much, in some cases. :D Mine was supposed
to be some kind of jungle warrior chick thing...

For the girls. the christmas tree standing next to me in our hostel room won..
for the guy, his costume was "The Great Gardener: The Gayest Superhero"
(my apologies to anyone who may be offended.)

Right: crazy Irish blokes and a couple'a pair of girls. The writing in the green
areas on the bags says the brand, which happens to be the Great Gardener.

Me, with the propietor of this fine establishment:

in honor of the sorta recently passed halloween holiday, i give thee more costumes!

This was last year's, dubbed the "cotton candy fairy" by a friend of mine... First one is Tabitha (me) on the left, and Tabitha (not me) on the right.. :D Second one is just me, looking all blotchy and a wee bit drunk. :)

and this years costume, which i decided on because i got spiffy mouse ears when we went to disney and wanted to use them again. :)

for some reason i look about four and a half feet tall there.
probably the way my grandpa was holding the camera up in the air. oh well.

Picture i took at work a few minutes ago to show my hat off to someone. Figured I might as well share.


and apparently, the hat wasn't very visible in that one, even at higher res, so i took one of just the hat, and when i was putting it back on, accidently snapped this, which is totally funny\sassy. :lol:
