BEST. HOLIDAY. EVER.
With all of the hectic press and preparation for “The Box” (opening November 6!) – I have completely neglected the most important decision of the year.
What the hell am I going to wear for Halloween?
Last year, I had a great inspiration: none other than Sarah Palin. I can do white trash better than just about anyone, so it was an easy transformation for me to become JOE SIX PACK – the quintessential Sarah Palin voter.
Custom fit mullet wig? Done. Beer can belt apparatus? Check. Custom designed airbrush portrait of Ms. Palin on a sleeveless tee? Commissioned and paid for. Pitbull tattoo on the left shoulder . . . list of all five Palin children (in birth order) on the right shoulder? Done and done.
Joe Six Pack – en route to Drew Barrymore’s Halloween bash of 2008. Most guests were horrified – then amused.
The costume was a trash-tastic success, and now this year I’m screwed. I can’t think of anything to wear. Nada. Nothing.
My instinct is to go trash-tastic again – luckily for me one of my good friends has discovered a rare hidden treasure, some might say an actual work of art.
You see — my friend (who shall remain nameless for her own protection) worked as a production assistant for Rosie O’Donnell’s talk show back in the 1990s. And she happens to possess one of the Rosie crew jackets, still preserved in mint condition actually.
Acid-wash denim is due for a comeback – right?
As anyone who knows me well can attest, I am a big Rosie O’Donnell fan. I think she’s awesome. Brave and misunderstood. Does a helluva lot for charity.
So I’m trying to figure out a way to turn this jacket into Halloween magic, I just don’t know if I can make it work.
I’m at a loss here . . . I welcome suggestions, thoughts?
