My Saturday With Shelby

Yesterday Shelby and I went costume shopping for her costume for the anime convention.
We went into it going eh, I have no idea what to get.
So, we sifted through the racks and racks and racks of costumes.
We went to the same store where I got my costume, because I knew that they were very helpful, had a huge selection, and were reasonably priced.

It took us about an hour and a half, but we picked out two costumes for her to try on.
While this was the second one, I'll show it to you first:I call it the "slutty little bumble bee".
I was holding on her wings, which is what you see there...
Yeah, so that one was a dud.
So, we moved on to the second one.
The Queen of Hearts, to match my Alice costume.
But it's actually "Malice in Wonderland." Malice and the Queen.
We wanted Malice and the Mad Hatter, but that just didn't work out that well.
Since the only Mad Hatter costume was a medium, and both Shelby and I wear extra small.

We decided to get that dress, and add some accessories to it to make it match mine.

We also decided to screw around in the costume store for a few minutes, because what else did we have to do?
Before we left, I picked out some masquerade masks for the masquerade ball at the convention. I figured we should just go all out. Why not?

Then we left and went to some thrift stores with my mom. There, we found even more masks to monkey around with.I also picked up a white rabbit stuffed animal that I modified. I'm going to carry it around by the ears at the convention. See? It's all about the details.
Then we did the typical teenage girl car pictures.
After we dropped off Shelby, I went home and re-dyed my hair. But I don't have a picture, because the difference was so minimal.
But the difference is obvious to me. Thankfully. I have a lot more of a red tinge than I had.
I modified my costume's stockings by cutting off the little mushroom patches. Then I modded the white rabbit. It was an easter rabbit, with orange and green on it. So I sharpied over it with black, and cut off it's little hat and orange bow tie.

Today I went to my old church to their lasagna luncheon. Then I went and got my hair cut. When I got home, I cut the white sleeves off of my costume because I felt like they made it a little frumpy.

Now, I sit here blogging.
Tomorrow... first day of school.
Oh god.

& GO SEE THAT MOVIE! If you saw it, you'd see that I didn't spoil it at all. It tells you in the beginning that it's not a love story. It won't be a love story until he meets Autumn. =]
GO SEE IT!

Good luck on your first day back at school!! I hate those clear masks, Brooke Shields as a kid wore one like it in a scary movie that freaked me out! And I like scary movies but not ones that terrified me as a child!

I am glad Bumble Bee lost, it was a bit too much...or little. LOL! Have fun!
