Once Upon a Time...

Once upon a time in a land far far away (where it wasn't 110 degrees
in September) there was a brave young prince (in a smashing outfit)...

Handsome, charming, and wealthy, our hero had everything he
could ever hope for. All was well for but what a boring story it would be if life remained
a bed of cheerful roses and cherry bowls for young prince Thad. (Yup, I'm
going with Thad but his name can be up for debate. And
by 'debate' I mean I'll only be accepting submissions that are also Crayola crayon
colors. For a full listing see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Crayola_crayon_colors
I'm partial to Prince Fuzzy Wuzzy myself).
Anyway, there's no telling what perils lie ahead in Thad's adventurous future....

Or what possibly unsavory characters he may encounter along the way...


But with his trusty steed by his side...

surely our hero can not but return victorious from his as yet to be specified journey.
Stay tuned...

And now, a note from our sponsors:
All of the wardrobe worn by Prince Thad and our other Ballad of Halloween heroes is available at our very own Western Costume Halloween Store, which very conveniently opens this coming Friday October 1st, right here in scenic North Hollywood, where- from what we hear anyway- it won't be 110 degrees either. See you there yes?

Ceci N'est Pas Une Blog

If you are in any way like me, you may not have thought about your Halloween costume until sometime last week where- much to your dismay- you discovered that it was the middle of September leaving you a scant six to seven weeks to come up with something truly genius.
Fear not fellow partial procrastinators, for genius abounds at this year's Halloween store.
(Author's note to audience: for those of you new to this blog, I will now make a number of seemingly unrelated pop culture references that will only possibly be tied together in some flourish of narrative inspiration. Stay tuned)
(Author's note to self: Blog needs genius. Cartoons=Genius. Ere go: Blog=Cartoons*)

~Shopper's Note: Segue Sold Separately



Carrots are high in beta carotene and costume contest wins...just saying

Shopper's Note: Bacon Buddy Sold Separately.**
And now for the greatest food costumes I've ever seen (and
no, this has nothing to do with a dress made of meat):


Just some inspiration for the following triptych:


Seriously, I love this outfit. Also, strangely, I feel more informed.
About what, can't be certain but I'm definitely more knowledgeable
about something. I wonder what that's about...

*Dear PhD Mathematics friends, sorry for the flagrant misuse of mathematical notation and logic. Also, sorry I can't make Dr. Who on Saturday.

**Having just realized our own need for a "Bacon Buddy" costume, there is not currently one scheduled to be part of the store. We'll let you know when we add this awesome piece to our collection.

And We're Back...


Good Morning Readers,
This could be disorienting to you (it certainly is for me) but the wonder-phenomenon that is the
'Spring Sale Blog' is back...wait for it...in the Fall. While there is no impending yard sale per se, we do have the annual and epic Halloween Store that is sprouting up right under our very noses. Frankly, it would just be selfish to keep such awesome masquerade and sartorial splendor to myself. Do look forward to updates, photos, and general snarky humor. (If, of course, looking forward to things is something that you are into.)
In the meantime I'm also learning Spanish (but not the computer skills to have correct punctuation and accent marks- please bear with me)
The Spanish word of the day is:
Diplomacia.
Let's use it in a sentence, shall we?
Yo soy diplomacia. E usted?

xo for serious,
Erica
