I failed in a big way by not getting a decent photo of my full costume last night.  I was the color purple (not the movie) and I think it turned out pretty great.  🙂  It took about 2 hours to get completely put together before heading out the door.  I am viewing last night as a trial run, as I had some issues with my purple make-up coming off on my chest, back, shoulders and arms.  Also my “purple” gloves that I dyed myself ended up being pretty blue, so I am going to redye them today at some point.  Tonight I am going to make sure that I get some good photos so I can share with you tomorrow!

The first thing we did last night was go to The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Alabama Theatre.  I was trying to remember my first time attending… I think I was 17 or 18 and it was with my highschool friend Emily Limbaugh.  I’ve tried to go every year since because it is always so much fun.  If you want to see some awesomely elaborate costumes and nudity, that’s the place to be.  🙂  After that we headed to Lakeview and danced a little at the Rare Martini, then headed to On Tap for some wings.  (One of these things is not like the other.)  It was definitely a lot of fun.

I am going to do as little as possible today so I can recharge my batteries for tonight.  There are so many great things to do around town that it is pretty hard to choose.  The three things I’d like to try to do are the Avondale Castle party, Peaches and Scream, then my friend Philip’s annual loft party.  Not necessarily in that order.  We will see how it all unfolds…
