Halloween Comes Early

I went to a Halloween party and dressed up for the first time ever! I won first prize in the costume contest!



Cruella de Vil, Cruella de Vil, if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will...

(Included in the costume but not shown in the photos - a dalmatian puppy with a noose around it's neck.)





I'm hoping to do some more stuff for Halloween so I can wear the costume a few more times because I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Since this party was hosted by a kink group, when it was my turn to step up and show my costume to the judges, I was able to say, “And my bra matches my capelet!” and prove it.

The book I was involved in - What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety - has been released! I can't wait to reread it and do all the exercises again. I got so much out of it the first time and know it'll help me even more to do them again. This book is incredible, I can't say enough good things about it!

Speaking of books I love, I also can't wait to read the revised edition of Big Big Love: A Sex and Relationships Guide for People of Size (and Those Who Love Them). But I'm not buying that yet because I'm waiting to see if I can come up with the gas money to go to Atlanta in November in order to attend Hanne Blank's reading and signing of it. Super excited about that!

I'm still feeling good!  I'm hurting physically but feeling good emotionally!  So, you know, I can live with that.

  3. Adorable costume!!

    One question about that book - it sounds really interesting, especially since I'm trying to redevelop my sexual identity right now - would it be helpful for women who don't really HAVE any secret desires or kinky things they want to do? Like for women who, hypothetically, are just plain terrified of sex in general and aren't comfortable with anything even REMOTELY unusual in the bedroom? Hypothetically. Or is it more for people who are looking to become more experimental but already have a foundation of enjoying sex in general?

  4. SO FUN! I've always wanted to be Ursula from The Little Mermaid, but I can't even get my shit together for the Elton John costume I wanted to make this year, I can't imagine being able to paint my top half periwinkle.

  7. Thank you so much! And I totally want to be Ursula sometime, that would be epic! Maybe my life theme for Halloween costumes could be Disney villains! And, Lia, I sent you a message through Livejournal. <3
