tonight we gonna party like it's eighteen eighty-eight

Tonight I recycled my costume from 2005, and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

Also did the face with paint, rather than colored pencils. I'm a lot happier with the results, except that the dried paint is so tight I can't smile without cracking it.

van gogh costume

I'm solo tonight, since Nic is working. But dammit, my Halloween spirit needs to at least show up and have a couple drinks.

oh they get it. he came by my work in costume (with a copy of the original picture) and everyone got it. AND thought it was totally cool and impressive. (and a lot of my staff is younger than me, so that is pretty cool too.) I was proud. :D

That is awesome. Did you lop off your ear?

People asked why I didn't; turns out that he didn't have the ear incident until a year or so after he did this self-portrait, so that's my excuse. :)

I got it!! And my husband kept talking about lopping off your ear with his tiny cleaver. Your costume was ultimate win.

It was great seeing you last night and that's an awesome costume. That picture you put up almost looks like a painting.

Likewise and thank you! That's what my dad said when I showed him the picture, that it looked like I just did a photo manipulation to a pic of me.

Hey will you either,
a) post a side-by-side of the 2 iterations of this costume, or
2) post a link to a pic from '05 so I can see it again?

I know you have posted the pic more than once, but frankly I am too tired and lazy to actually go looking for it. Thanks!

I will in a follow-up post after I have a few more photos of better quality. :)

For now, here's
