Back in my carefree days when I had more of this thing called free time, I used to make my costumes from sustainable fabrics. These days, I'm lucky to find 5 minutes mid-day to scarf down a banana for lunch, and the glorious day of Halloween costume design fun are long gone. And the possibility of finding an eco-friendly costume at one of those chain style pop-up Halloween shops is nonexistent, of course. Well thank sweet goodness for vintage. Finding a 70s era Cher dress at a vintage shop doesn't exactly require an abundance of creativity, but because I tend to border on unhealthy on the perfectionist scale, it had to, ya know, be just right. I have to admit, I think I did good with this dress and the accessories (both real-live/official 1970s gear). I actually kind of can't wait to wear it again.
P.S. We sang "I Got You Babe" repeatedly until we annoyed people. Then we sang it again.
