Goddess of Peace

After eight days, four hotels, three boroughs, two flights, one “town,” miles of walking, a subway ride, about ten cabs, and close to 800 pictures, I AM HOME. New York treated me well, but there is only so much chaos I can take and arriving in my more relaxed city is just where I feel at home. I’ll abbreviate the picture overload and share only the ones I think you might be interested in. Bear with me, I know no one gets overly excited to view someone else’s vacation photos. It’ll take me a while to sort through the madness, so for today I’m sharing my Halloween costume. Halloween was like sooo last week, I know.

First, the inspiration photos:

What? You don’t get it? A shimmery makeup up, come hither, wannabe warrior who got cold and put a sweater on? No! A Goddess of Peace. Hello. My name means Goddess of Peace. Seriously. Don’t believe me, read this. I dressed up as the definition of my name. That sounds geeky so I went with Goddess of Peace. Which, let me tell you, could not be more accurate because I hate fighting. Want the answer to world peace, start naming your kids Irene. Yes, plural. Name all of your kids Irene and that won’t confuse anyone.

Oh yeah, this is what I looked like:

Let’s be friends, I won’t ever fight with you.

xx,

Irene

Oh Audrey

Maybe next year I’ll dress up as Audrey Hepburn.

I have a year to work on my class and sophistication.

Hope you’ve found your Halloween costume.

Irene and Halloween

Halloween has become my favorite holiday since discovering dressing up in adulthood is way more fun than it was in childhood. Slutty costumes may or may not be the reason, though it’s good to have options.

I love Halloween despite a few contradictory reasons:

1. My costumes are usually last-minute, made-up, hardly creative and typically consist of items I already own. One year I dressed up as a cowgirl waitress (?!?). Whatever, my dress was short.

2. I HATE being scared. I scare The Husband, my dog and possibly my future kids but it ends there. I can scare you but you cannot scare me. Those are the rules. Sorry.

3. I’m also scared of the dark. The Husband is paranoid of the dark and, like chapstick, we keep flashlights everywhere. Chapped lips also scare me, but that’s un-Halloween related.

4. I’ve never watched a scary movie in its entirety. Wait, I take that back. I saw Blair Witch Project like ten years ago and I still have trouble sleeping.

Sidenote: As a teenager kid, I always collected the least candy. Mostly because I would not walk up to someone’s door unless the porch light was on. Eff you if you were one of those who blasted scary sound effects from a tape player.

I really just like the excuse to wear my freaky/kinky clothes and appear totally normal. Can we please create more costume holidays?

Yes, I’ve been waiting all year to be a Tranny Prostitute.

This year I’ll be making up my own costume, which I’ve decided is the best route to take. A low point is when 20 other girls are wearing my your same unoriginal costume and at least half of them look better than me you. Never again. I can only imagine how much that bites.

Being uncreative gives me the sads.
Sending you creative super powers,
