Yeah, so, I bought these rainboots for my Coraline costume this past Halloween. I had no idea that I would actually use them in my day-to-day life.
Yet, I have been wearing them during these rainy months. I live at the bottom of Potrero Hill on the Dogpatch border. All the rain runs down that hill. It’s like a river running through our neighborhood. I need the boots! They may not be particularly fashionable, but at least my feet and legs are dry while I’m dragging Homer out through the rain.
Sadly, these are not the only former Halloween costume items that linger in my regular wardrobe. I have a cute red skirt from my Velma from “Scooby Doo” costume that has been worn outside of Halloween. The orange turtleneck that goes with it, not so much. The glasses? Well, I wear those every day. On Halloween, people think they are part of the costume. Nope. Those are just my regular everyday glasses.
I also own a very cute disco-type dress that I bought for a 70s party. It’s cute, dammit! I fully intend to wear it to a bar one night.
Don’t judge me.
It’s not like I bought a sexy nun outfit and I’m wearing it in February. These are regular clothes that I just happened to wear for Halloween. It’s not the same as a girl on “What Not To Wear” who buys a skirt for her pimp ‘n’ hos costume party and then starts wearing it to work.
Seriously. Don’t judge me.
