Well, for the first time in years, we didn't do anything around the house for
Halloween. Traditionally, Jesann has decorated the garage and/or the house for the
holiday and we've stayed home awaiting the trick-or-treaters. This year, we took
a break from that and got dressed up.
Jesann, of course, made some wonderful outfits for us. We had this “'fro” wig and
she developed from there. at first, it was simply going to be a “pimp-ing” outfit, but
when I decided that I wanted to dress up for work, Jesann decided to create a different
look for the daytime.
This outfit became the early '70's version. Note the wonderfully full bell-bottoms at
the bottom of the legs. You'll also see that the colorful parts of the shirt and pants
It was a very popular look. I got more compliments than I could have imagined. I'm sure
some of the positive feedback was simply because of the memories I invoked in people. In
fact, one lady even said that I looked like someone she had dated thirty years ago .
This stuff is definitely going to stay in the closet for future use.
Then, for the evening out, I got to put on the pimping outfit. I got the gold, the
polyester, the 'fro, and the hat. Oh, and don't miss the gold tooth, too.
Jesann went with the elegant vamp outfit. She picked up some of those cool contacts
this past summer when she went a visiting her friend down in Las Vegas. Between those and
the sharpened tooth caps, she was looking really good.
After leaving the house we went to visit a few friends to show off our “wears” and
then headed over to Nonna's for pizza and a drink.
Just have to throw in a close up picture of Jesann's eyes and teeth. This shot really
shows them off.
You might also barely make out the fact that she has some fiber optics incorporated
into the wigs - this just added to the effect.
After spending some quality time at our Ristoranté
Italiano, we headed downtown to find a little bit of nightlife. There wasn't much on a
Sunday night, but we finally stopped at the local
Rock Bottom Brewery for a couple of games of pool.
I was reminded how bad at pool I am, but Jesann made some really good impressions on
people with her outfit. Others were asking to take her picture! Of course, she obliged .
