"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way"

I spent my Sunday afternoon helping prepare my friends house for 2008's largest Halloween house party. To date there have been over 200 people RSVP. Fortunately the basement of the house holding the party is not finished so we were able to really get creative. I helped paint the Alice In Wonderland room, complete with stripes, polka dots and astro-turf flooring. I am getting VERY excited for this party.

So what am I going to be? As many of you have guessed from my clues, I will be Jessica Rabbit this Halloween. For those of you scratching your head like "who is
that", she is the wife of Roger Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit and is also pictured below.

Obviously she is a cartoon so there is no way to replicate her exactly but I have all the pieces to be the human version of the redheaded temptress. In fact Friday night Karina and I even watched the Roger Rabbit movie to watch her mannerisms and study her makeup. Our favorite line (besides the blog title, of course):

Jessica: "You don't know how hard it is to be a woman looking the way I do."

Valiant: "You don't know how hard it is to be a man looking at a woman looking the way you do."

Needless to say, I will be channeling my inner diva this Halloween to get the sass and confidence needed to pull off this costume. I think next year I'm going to go as something boring, maybe a cat or a pumpkin or Sarah Pallin. This costume is turning into more work then I thought.

Blogfully yours,

Can't wait to see the pictures! And I am so, so sad that I won't be at the party.

And, wait. Who gave you a paintbrush? I thought you were bad at art?

Did you make your costume?
I make the JR costume and offer it to others.
