Whiskers and Flappers

How was your Halloween, party people?

Quincy and I dressed up as Bernard and Bianca from The Rescuers!

If you've never seen this Disney gem, I highly recommend it... Eva Gabor and Bob Newhart voice the starring mice! Adorable!

I loved making and wearing these ears but the clip-on whiskers... Ouch. Toward the end of the night, Quincy said, "I feel like I have a crab hanging off my nose."

It was all worth it, however, because we won the costume contest at Mayday! Yay!

I didn't want to don those nasty whiskers all day, so for the office, I dressed as Clara Bow.

She was the original "it girl." No, seriously, she starred in the movie It in 1927 and that is from whence we get the term.

If you haven't seen It (the '20s version, NOT the Stephen King thriller), do it! It's on Netflix and is so modern and funny and... Oh. Trust me.
