winner!

today: FULL OF WIN. i mean, it's slightly MORE full of win for foggy dew, as he is the winner of the wee giveaway package:

i'll be emailing you shortly, sir!

everyone else: you also win, because it's friday. i think we can all agree that is EXCELLENT news.

and hey! i win too, because when i finally got home last night at 11pm, my ice skates were waiting for me. FANTASTICO!

i tried on the Full Costume, since i now have everything (uh, except for the pipe / crow bar, which i'll be picking up this afternoon). i had bought a pair of supertan-colored pantyhose for mah legs, and because of the aforementioned sausage-casing-hip issue, i was all "i know! i'll be smart and buy control top hose, to help squish the ol' hippal region into the leotard. i am so smart! s-m-r-t!"

right. because control top hose start controlling around mid thigh, and i'm wearing a LEOTARD.

for the record, it's quite difficult to take a picture of one's own ass. just fyi.

incidentally, i've decided not to care. the hip-fat-smushage benefit outweighs the visible-control-top-hose-line cost, as far as i'm concerned. my new s-m-r-t plan is to hike the hose up as far as possible to minimize the Control Visibility from under the flutter skirt. i'm sure it will look just as hot as it sounds.

  2. Actually, in my opinion, the control top part of the hose only add to the costume. People will think you did it on purpose. Really.

  4. I seriously can't wait to see what the full outfit is like now. You should be a zombie ice skater. Then no one would notice the control top part.

  5. I am sorry, but that picture made me laugh out loud. Mr. P gave me a very weird look.

  6. I know from personal experience it is really difficult to take a picture of your own ass.

  7. Exactly what Jess said -- Tonya Harding would totally have let the control top show. Make sure you break one of the laces on the skates, too.
