Day 182: Boxing Day

December 26 is Boxing day, a day where traditionally servants and tradesmen would receive boxed gifts from their superiors. So today I have decided to dress as a giant boxed gift, a transformer of sorts.

Day 179: Festivus

Day 179: Festivus

For the tenth day of Christmas, we navigate away from the traditional symbols of Christmas to bring you the anti-Christmas – Festivus. Festivus (for the rest of us) is celebrated on November 23 and was made popular through an episode of Seinfeld. Festivus was conceived by writer Dan O’Keefe and was celebrated by his family as early as 1966. The holiday was later introduced into popular culture by O’Keefe’s screenwriter son Daniel on an episode of Seinfeld. The holiday’s celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included an unadorned aluminum “Festivus pole,” practices such as the “Airing of Grievances” and “Feats of Strength,” and the labeling of easily explainable events as “Festivus miracles.”

So today I have chosen to dress as Frank Costanza holding the infamous aluminum pole. Happy Festivus!

Day 175: The Grinch

 

For the sixth day of Christmas themes (halfway) I have decided to take on the theme of The Grinch and dress up as the character Cindy Lou Who. Interesting fact, the little girl was played by Taylor Momsen, of Gossip Girl fame. If only she was still as sweet. Please note that it took me about 30 minutes to mold my blonde wig into this shape, but it was totally worth it!
