After putting so much effort into Saturday night and having such a blast I didn’t think I would be able to make it out again for Halloween proper. Well, I did! Now while I did not get home until 8pm I was able to quickly brainstorm an idea, rush to Value Village and pick up the necessary black jeans and a dark red-ish shirt, then I hit up the grocery store for some white out and washable markers (unfortunately Redlight was already closed but I was able to make do at the first two places.)
Here is the result:
With a close-up on the neck:
Now I was pretty sad how un-recognized my costume was at Linda’s and Havana, you think Capitol Hill would have been dialed into this fad, but no.. Thankfully a few gays made my night while walking home:
Random guy: ‘is that a real tattoo on your neck?’
Me: ‘no, i did it with this Crayola washable marker’ (Ben really wanted me to use a Sharpie but I was skeptical I’d be able to remove the next morning)
Random guy: ‘wow, you know who has a tattoo like that, Jeffrey from Project Runway’
Me: ‘oh really?’
Random guy: ‘wait, you have cut off black pants, sneakers, wow, good costume!’
Well, don’t take some random guy’s opinion, here’s Jeffrey’s picture, how did I do?
Big thanks to Stina for altering my $6 in clothing and tattoo’ing my neck.
Update: Ben A. pointed out another person who dressed up as a Project Runway participant.
