Fruit Hat and Rigamorticians

October season presents a challenge: I love dress-up and costumery but sometimes it is hard to whip up a proper outfit for a Halloween party when every day dress so frequently blurs the line between holiday and the pret-a-porter. However, since I will likely be shotgunning cans of Hamm's with a stiff bunch of Democrats in a suburban Columbus bowling alley on ZEE Halloween, I had to squeeze in as much disfrazing as possible this weekend.

Friday night: Gaby's birthday party. The task: dress as your alter ego. Easy: I in a Carmen Miranda-esque get-up and Roomie as a Ren Faire maiden.

Saturday night: Much more in line with historical preferences: Zombie Pin-up Calendar launch party. Too bad I lost my purse (I found it today!) and made us miss the party. But then Laura, Daniela, Roomie and I stayed decked out as retro zombie babes and went to a gallery space masquerade party where we converted a legion of unassuming humanz into brain-guzzling rigamorticians on the dance floor. We didn't have a camera to take pictures of the gore but hopefully Kasia's shots will materialize. On a cute note, we told everyone we mistook masquerade on the invite for MASS GRAVE! Mwhahaha!

Has anyone ever noticed that Ruby Fuerza looks exactly like Kenley Stiles from Project Runway but has the personality of..Julia Donahue?

The makeup and costumery is masterful. A Party City for the Revolution!

I love Ruby Fuerza.
