It was a mates leaving do and it was a few days before Halloween. It wasn’t a fancy dress party but I thought I’d add some cat ears to my outfit for a bit of fun. If you have followed this blog you will know my outfits can sometimes be pretty rock chick, with leather and lace and arm cuffs/gloves etc. I’d recently bought some leather shorts which I wore with wet look leggings. It was a party and I wanted to look glam for a change, so I chose a corset and some heels (knee high boots were the only ones that I had at the time). I looked like a sexy goth bitch, which I was pleased about.
Two words. Cat Women. I spent the first hour explaining to people that yes, I know it’s not a fancy dress party. No, I’m not actually in fancy dress apart from the ears (which I removed before more guests arrived). Yes, this is my usual style pretty much just glammed up a bit. No the gloves aren’t part of the perceived costume, I soften wear them with vests, skinny jeans and boots. The weird thing was The Bloke didn’t say a word about my chosen outfit. Then just to finish it off I leaned over and my boobs fell out of my ‘costume’. At least only four people saw, three of whom were women.
The party was ace though!
I suppose if you are going to have a major style miss-judgement and a wardrobe malfunction, you might as well remind people of DC Comics most loved femme fetale while doing so.
