It's no secret that I like to play dress up, or that I have a slight obsession with Cher. When I was 9 years old, I thought I WAS Cher. I would be Cher every year for Halloween if it was up to me, but everyone in town is tired of my same ol' shtick.
So, as much as I got you babe, I guess it was time to hang up my long black wig for good and move on to somethin' else. But, if I could turn back time............
So last year when Cher's daughter Chastity was makin' headlines because of her gender reassignment surgery, I decided to be somethin' more relevant and go as Chaz Bono. How 'bout those chops folks? Lemme tell ya, it ain't no fun bein' a fat dude even for a day.
Now I know I mentioned in a previous post I was going to dress up as Honey Boo Boo's Mama this year. But, it was gettin' downright expensive to emulate Mama June's signature look. Although I could reuse Chaz's fat suit, I still had to buy a patterned blouse, XXL black pants, ankle socks, keds and a wig. Plus, the cost to fly over three chins from China just put me over the edge. To be truly authentic, ya can't be Mama June without her three chins ya know.
So this year I decided to dress for Halloween on a budget. Everything came straight outta my closet, with the exception of my head gear, and I found that on sale for $10.99. WHOO HOO!!! This costume might take a little bit of imagination, so put on your thinkin' caps and take a guess as to what I'm supposed to be. As one of the radio stations says that I listen to, "You are playing for pride, not prize".
