On May 2, 1997, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery was released, so this is why I have taken it on as my theme today dressing as a Fembot. Fembots are beautiful women dressed in provocative outfits who were used by Dr. evil against Austin Powers. They are known for their greatest weapon – guns hidden within their breasts which can fire knockout gas or bullets – more affectionately known as machine gun jubblies.

Today I am taking on the user-suggested theme of Poison Ivy by Fernanda. I thought it appropriate that I take on this theme the day after Uma Thurman’s birthday as she played the role of Poison Ivy in Batman & Robin. Man, that was a terrible film.

To even out Disney Week some more, today I bring you a villain – Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians. It took me YEARS to figure out her name meant cruel devil, but once I did, it was like MIND.BLOWN.
Please note this is my natural curly hair that I only had to tease the tiniest of bits to turn it into this madness. Also, to achieve the half white hair look, I just covered half of my hair in baby powder.
With the release of The Dark Knight Rises this week, it is all but appropriate to have a Batman theme. So I’ve chosen to dress up as my favourite Batman character – Catwoman. Furthermore, I’ve chosen to dress as the best Catwoman of all – Tim Burton’s (ain’t nobody got nothing on Michelle Pfeiffer yo!)
The Catsuit that you see me in is a handmade Catwoman suit that took me a couple of weeks to make with help from my best friend, and was originally worn at my work Christmas party.
