Halloween 2014 I: Planning

Last year for Halloween, I was Nefertiti.  The week before the first event of the season, I had a change of heart and wanted to be Wonder Woman.  I talked myself out of it (I barely finished Nefertiti in time, so I couldn't have imagined starting an entirely new costume under such a time crunch), but the idea has been kicking around in my head since then, and I decided I would follow through this year.

While the traditional Wonder Woman costume is essentially a swimsuit, that really isn't going to cut it for my needs.  Aside from the fact that I don't have the confidence to wear that in public, I wouldn't be able to get away with wearing that to work.  Old school WW does wear a skirt or skorts, and occasionally would in the Lynda Carter TV series as well.  Skirt it is.  I think I'll go more daring than usual and make it above my knee.

That'd take care of the lower half, but strapless doesn't work for me either.  I don't have the proper assets to pull it off, and again, needs to be work appropriate.  My co-workers properly wouldn't be too pleased if my cupcakes popped out.  So it looks like I will be needing straps as well.

Other things to add: a lasso, bracelets, a tiara, and perhaps a cape.
