Had a blast at the party last night. Here is the photo set on Flickr. It took me forever (almost three hours) to get my makeup on and get ready. The eyelashes gave me more trouble than the latex nose and chin. I learned to important things about wearing fake body parts last night:
- When wearing a false chin and nose, use a straw to drink. Otherwise, you'll probably mostly miss your mouth on the first sip and fill your chin with water.
- Bring along the spirit gum for on-the-go repairs. My chin was behaving as it should.
The wig and the eyelashes were great once I got them on. I forgot I was wearing them. So glad I bought those bobby pins.
Well, back to the sushi. I'll take pictures later. One side is done and I'm cutting more rice. Apparently Max is worried I won't finish. I need to get the new rice glued on so it can dry while I start on my sister's costume.
Note: I always type the word costume wrong. I don't know why, but I always reverse the o and the u. This has made the last month or so rather tedious to report. It will be a relief to stop typing the word after tomorrow.
