|Mini Mouse and Minnie Mouse....|
Dear Belle Epoque readers,
I am certainly aware Halloween is well in the past, but I had to take a moment to blog about the exciting first Halloween I had with a baby. I might touch down on etiquette as well. For starters every costume I had picked out bombed. I had been planning on a pink elephant costume, but every review I read said it arrived looking mangled and worn, really, that is exactly what I want my little precious looking like, a mangled and worn pink elephant. I wanted this outfit for two reasons, growing up a Republican I thought it was funny in a political way and if she is ever running for president, a very cute endorsement. This also goes for if she decides she wants to rebel and be a Democrat. Still funny. Also, when speaking to friends on Halloween about politics we could use her and say "oh well there must be an elephant in the room."
"Elephant in the room" is an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss.
It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue."
Holy politics. this sounds perfect. Anyway, her monarch butterfly costume was at my sister's house. Many costumes went through my head Monday, I even considered dressing her in boy's clothes, painting a little crumb catcher on her and telling people she was a boy. The only problem with this costume would be when she is older and looks back on her first Halloween and thinks, "gee, my Mom really did lose her sh*T when I was born." Or, she could be happy because like Chas Bono, she always knew she had it in her... either way it was a bad idea. I thought about stuffing a onesie with cotton and painting her face white and making her the Pillsbury Dough Boy like my parents did when I was um, 10! I just knew I would not be able to find A little chef hat, so I thought what costumes do I already have? I had Minnie Mouse ears from my sisters recent trip to Disney and of course she brought me back some too. For those who do not know, I have a secret affinity for Minnie Mouse. It is not weird. She is girlie, wears great yellow kitten heels and has a red and white polka dot dress. Who doesn't want this? Plus her husband, Mickey, is a billionaire, Holla. I went to Walmart bought her a long sleeve white onesie some black leggings and little glittered black mary-janes. I put a little black eye-shadow on her nose and put her Minnie ears on and voila, "Mini "Mouse and I was Minnie Mouse. My costume consisted of a black dress with Gaga-esque sleeves, my fancy sequined Minnie ears, a sequined belt and patent leather wedges. I, too put black eyeshadow on my nose and presto Minnie Mouse and Mini mouse. I was so pleased.

Godspeed little ghosties,
|Audrina, you should have dressed up as yourself so people won't forget who you are, or even better, Justin Booby.|
|Fergie, you nailed it! Eden Woods????|
|Heidi, Heidi, Heidi, you love Halloween, I get it...BUT for the sake of all men seeking a well sought after boner, never do this again. For God's sake you are a super model, which kinda makes this AWESOME!|
|Much like Poison Ivy, you get under people's skin, start a rash and make them feel like they are going to crawl out of their skin from itching to death. Perfect costume KKH-H|
|Nice to see you out of Rastafarian colors. You are pretty....|
|You can do no wrong Anne...|
|a perfect example of how Halloween costumes can cost nothing. This particular year we were Irv and Peg Spazziano. Transplants from the North...it was free and our best yet.|
