Did anybody notice how my previous post has a tag that says “LAME”. Like, click here for other lame posts. Perfect. Just another thing to fix…
I have on and off years for Halloween. Some years I go all-out, and others I just can’t be bothered. Well, this year was an off year, definitely, except that I decided to run the Halloween Half Marathon, and so I was forced to come up with something semi-cool to wear. I couldn’t run in sportswear, after all! My creative brilliance has never really blossomed for Halloween, and like usual I couldn’t think of anything spectacular, so I finally decided that Alice would be alright. A bit cliche, I know. But whatev. It was all so last minute anyway. I found some dollar fabric at Wally-town, and I already had oodles of lace on hand and a pattern I thought would work; I cranked it one late night before my sister’s big bash.
I used Simplicity 2591,(which I want to make again because it’s a really fun pattern, but it does run large), and then I added the lace and buttons for some extra “Lunderland” (as my girl says it) whimsy. I was going for something in between the Disney cartoon and new version. I was ecstatic to find a perfect little vile at Hobby Lobby, which I’m thrilled to say they just opened in Orem.
And it turned out to be great running attire! Well, except for the tights, but I won’t mention why. I like the dress so much, you may or may not see me in it at church sometime. I would have no hesitation except that after the race we went out to eat and our server said “I’m assuming you’re wearing that for Halloween? Good! Cause if you wore that normally that would be horrible!” Hmmm. I’ll have to think about that one.
And finally, here’s me busting some Mim-J.
