TGI-MEAN CHEESE




Happy Friday everyone!

as you can tell from the title I am getting into mean cheese mode for the weekend. This will be a big weekend for the cheese, you see....she will be getting her very own used copy of......Fall Fashion Vogue.

Yup you heard it right, la petite fashionista is going to be pretty darned happy, as will we, as you know there are over 800 pages in that puppy, which means it will take her an awful longtime to go through it all, also she has limited understanding so she will not be overwhelmed with the power of "skank with bad eyebrows which is Sienna Miller.

Moving on......

thank you all for wishing me well on my milestones, this post you are reading is #293, and I have a little over 10 sales to go before hitting 1400.

SO that means the "blog love" sale is still on....just write "Blog Love" in the message to seller and wait for a new invoice to receive 20% off.

So yesterday I worked for the majority of the day working on 4 pieces that were about half done. They are 4 8x10 collages, they are a set but not a set. They are all be offered separate but I am showing a photo of what they look like all together.

kinda dreamy, no?

also..............the Halloween costume idea, wonderful!!! I did not even know there was fabric glue. that opens up a whole new world to me.

See, I want to be a damn jungle girl, and I am confidant enough in my body to be able to wear something small....but not tiny.

So, like a mini dress, off the shoulder would be fine....Bra and teeny tiny pants....um, not fine (I found one on eBay, it was an "adult" costume

You know, plus, let's be realistic, I've visited the jungles of Central America and I did not see any Victoria's Secret there...

anyway...my point is I want the outfit to be sexy, yet not look like a day time hooker. It should be appropriate to give candy out to children, but if teenage boys came to the door it should be just a little uncomfortable....you know.

OK, I babble.....it's not like we are going to a party yet...it's just, well, I love the holiday.

Oh, and I forgot to say...in my searches online I found a really cool silver age Batgirl costume, not like the trashy plastic costumes they have at the stores (which in reality are just a black plastic Huntress Costume, and not Batgirl at all......yes, I just realized that by saying this I am crowning myself Queen of all the Nerds).

A Batgirl costume might be a little more useful in the long run, because then I could wear it to comic conventions...and privately, you know if my bubs and I are ever playing "frolic in the Bat Cave" or something.

I know, gross.....sorry.

with that I am going to leave you before I start to go on, and on, and on about my sexy comic book fantasies, lol.

see you all tomorrow...at some point.

xoxoxo

Yep I know you can come up with a rocking costume - bit of glue and you will be fine! See this is why there should not be that massive oceon in the way - I could have just popped on over to yours - whipped you up a costume in no time! But alas - oh well.

Have a great weekend with the mean cheese - I am sure she will be entertained for hours with the vogue.

Congrats on the sales success!

You know, I made myself an Eve costume a couple years ago (sadly, there was no Adam at the time), and it came out really well. I just cut up a skin toned dress and glued leaves and flowers where necessary. Nothing slutty about it...well, not really...

I love the look of the four pieces together. Very nice!

I hate Halloween but I know a lot of people who love it and delight in their searches - yours too - for the perfect costume. I never dress up. I'm funny that way.

Just make sure your glue is on tight. Nothing is worse than leaving the house and realizing your costume is going to take constant maintenance. It's like the time I went as a teabag in elementary school, and left pieces of cut-up brown construction paper everywhere. Thankfully, my mom was right behind me with the tape.

Gaa, you're funny. I love the collages. So if you're batgirl, your "bubs" would be... The Joker? Surely not Robin...

seraphine this is when I amaze (scare) you with my knowledge....my bubs would not eb the joker as he actually raped and shot batgirl she now cannot walk and is in a wheel chair and has been for years...

meanwhile the first Robin (batgirls bf) is all grown up and a total hunk...so yeah...my bubs would be that Robin, who is now known as Nightwing....

end geek rant.

your comic book knowness sometimes scares me, but then I just have a glass of wine and embrace it all. PS I forgive you for missing required ANTM model watching, your drinking excuse is the only allowable excuse of course. Have much fun with the mean cheese this weekend, she will adore vogue. P.S. I already for my first wear test! woohoo!

Oh, dear, I got so distracted thinking about slutty baseball girl costumes yesterday that I forgot to congratulate you on your milestones: congrats, Jenn!!

Oh, and not to go all geek on you, but I thought the Joker just shot and paralyzed Barbara Gordon. I don't remember any rape scene in The Killing Joke. Unless that was added to canon later; my knowledge ends sometime in the early nineties.

Good luck with the Mean Cheese, Jungle Jenn!

aaron...the rape is implied which is why the joker showed naked pictures of barbara to her father, if you look in the pictures it is obvious what is happening.

also, alan moore implied in interviews that Barbara was raped by the henchmen and her father by the joker himself.

ok, now I am done with the superhero rape talk.
