Dearest valued costume fans,
I’m SOOOO SORRY that’s it’s been so long since my last post, but suffice to say that things have been rather crazy in Maryland (also a chocolate chip cookie brand in the UK) so I will make it up to you with not one, but TWO costume posts this week!
First up I bring you my Barbarella costume that I wore on the first night of the Secret Garden festival that was for the theme: Disaster Ready. The first thing you’ll notice is that I am not wearing underwear which is the style of the iconic white Barbarella outfit. This is for two reasons:
1. It was really cold that weekend
2. It was really rainy that weekend
And wearing underwear in such conditions would have made me REALLY sick. So instead I opted for a dress-style of the iconic outfit where I altered a man’s white business shirt. So if you want to do Barbarella, but not look like a massive skank – THEN THIS IS THE OPTION FOR YOU!
