...by trick-or-treating as a petticoated maid....
The maid uniform is by Rubies, bought at Halloween Adventures in April 2008; the shoes are Fioni "Loveit" black patent pumps, from Payless in May 2011. Other accessories are silver jewelry and white hose.
And, yes, I'm as likely to show up in public in this (even on Halloween) as I am to fly under my own power.
More pics on Flickr; dressing resumes with "the gals of November" on Friday; and don't forget to rate the woman you'd love to be (details here)!
