Rats!

Friday, November 9, 2012

A couple of you asked recently how I spent my Halloween. Well, the Saturday before (which is when everyone in my neighborhood seemed to celebrate this year), I got together with two friends and we dressed up as...

                      
...subway rats! In addition to our ears, noses, and tails, we clipped plastic bugs, bits of paper, and leaves to our hair, and taped trash to our bodies (that's a coffee lid on my torso, above). The goal was to look as dirty and grotesque as possible.


Voila! The rat pack. 


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and I'll see you back here Monday!

For those of you still looking to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, please consider donating to the Red Cross. You can also click here for a useful list of relief websites. And New Yorkers, if you're free Sunday afternoon, my pal Joanna is hosting a Hurricane Relief bake sale at DwellStudio from 12-3 PM. Check it out!

So cute. It's not that big a deal over here in Sydney. Unless someone plans a Halloween party just to dress up.
Also best wishes to those affected by the hurricane. I see that the area is snowing as well which isn't too good.
