Frida

Never in a million did I think a uni-brow was cool until last Saturday. I was kinda all about it. I dressed up as the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and enjoyed parading around all night with drawn in brows, a massive bouquet on my head, an overload of gold and silver jewelry and of course red lips. While pretty covered up compared to the midriff baring superwomen, and  sexy girl scouts I was surrounded by, I felt very much empowered, even sexy in my (favorite to date) costume. This even beats out Gaga- last year, and Cleopatra the year before that! I'll have to dig up Gaga pictures, I was a bit of midriff baring, pants-less mess myself that year! Then again that woman wears no pants, I kinda had to.

  6. Hi Ladies, it was kinda fun playing dress up, I'm not going to lie!

    @Jessica: I did see the movie. I made a point to do it once I realized this would be my costume. I was really sad, almost creepy I would say..

    @Fatiha Faulzi: haha no I really don't have a unibrow, I drew it on darling!

  11. Frida Kahlo is my favorite artist. I love the feel she has for women and her self-image is a feast of psychological speculation. I have read the huge biography written about her and seen the movie and I will say that I find her life absolutely intriguing. I applaud you for your choice of costume. I was Gaga this year! That's a whole lot less inspirational but I am goo-goo for Gaga.
    Thanks for visiting my blog. You are very beautiful, even with a unibrow!
