In case you’re still in need of a costume for the post-Halloween weekend (uh oh), are already thinking ahead to next year (impressive) or generally find your inbox flooded with costume party invitations (lucky), I thought I’d share my costume from this year’s festivities: “Fifty Shades of Grey,” a literal interpretation.
I have to admit, I’ve never read the book, but its title was easy enough to interpret. The paint chips were generously donated by Ace Hardware (which is to say I awkwardly walked in, nabbed a bunch and left) then hot glued onto a cheap grey skirt from Target. Add a grey top, plastic handcuffs and the world’s longest fake eyelashes, and you’ve got yourself a “Fifty Shades of Grey” costume. Madisonians seemed to get a kick out of it. Hopefully you do, too .
Special thanks to my main gal, Sarah, for the idea.
