Put On Your Thinkin' Caps

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".

  3. Chaz was supposed to come here to Serbia to have the sex change operation since we have the best surgeons for that, I Wonder if he did it in the end.....

    Don't know what the costume represents, but Lady Gaga might get jealous :)

    1. I watched Chaz's documentary and he had his breasts removed, but he said he was unsure as to whether he would have the "other surgery" because it wasn't that important to him and his girlfriend. Although I saw a recent article that he and his girlfriend broke up. :(

    2. yep, I watched the one on TLC too and I also heard about him and his girlfriend and how he bought a dog to replace her :(
      So we don't know if he got his new private parts or not....

  6. I don't know about Cher - her voice is too deep and she looks like a tranny. Is that you in the last picture? You're definitely in the running for the "Boobs I'd like to fondle" prize.

  7. I'd go get some paint samplers to tape to your arms & legs for more "shades" & maybe put your handcuffs around one wrist for good measure. Excellent costume!

    1. Sadly, it seems you know me too well. This party girl has been overserved on too many occasions.

  9. I'm going to guess you're a few shades of gray... I'd maybe carry a whip around for good measure. Or a guy on a leash, that would work too :)
    AWESOME costume!

    1. AH HAH!!!! Another intellectual type. Excellent job!!! Yes, you are right I do need to add a few accessories to my costume. As luck would have it, I need look no further than my closet for those items either.

  12. Oh I love you more with each post. I choked on my lunch when I read "fly three chins from China". I have to admit, I was stumped by the 7 shades, but I'm stumped by many things these days.

  18. I saw this post lately last night! Literally when I saw your Cher Photo -- Listen to this: I thought it WAS Cher!!! You are perfect for the Cher impersonators conference!!!!!!

    Then - also - When I saw the odd but true depiction we were to guess, I said to my self "Now why does she have on about a zillions 'shades of gray'?" - but didn't catch on myself until I was reading/searching for the answer and then doh, I remembered what I had said. LOL VERY VERY CLEAVER!!!
