So it's Halloween and you have completely blown off getting a costume. Now what? You have a party to attend and there's nothing left at the store but some elephant ears, clown shoes and a Harry Potter wand. What are you going to do?
Don't worry, I've got you covered.
All you need is a candle, a wine cork and some fire.
With this burnt cork, you now have a million possibilities.
You can be pig-pen from Charlie Brown...just carry a dirty blanket and suck your thumb.
You could be an angry pirate...get out a bandanna and an eye patch from your last bout with pink eye.
You could be a spooky ghost with a beard, just cut a face hole in your old sheets. It's a stretch but will work...remember you are desperate.
Or you could just be yourself, with a dirty face.
One Halloween I was in the same predicament, no costume, party was at 7 and I had to work all day. What was a girl to do?
I got out a cork, burned it and instantly I was the bearded lady from the circus. It was awesome.
Moon over the pumpkin patch.
Enjoy your night and have a safe Halloween.
