THE WIZARD OF OZ - ALTERNATE ENDING

For the past few days we have been scrambling around trying to come up with costumes for are Halloween Party. Finally on Sunday we placed an order. Fettit is going to be the tinman (how appropriate - watch the video), our current wayward housemate, Rich, is going to be the scarecrow, and I was going to go as the Wicked Witch of the West. Notice I said Was? I received an email from the costume company yesterday stating they are out of my costume.

I'm at a lose. Last night I spent the entire evening trying to find a costume and I am having no luck. I searched so much that I continuously dreamed of the Wizard of Oz.

Yesterday Matt told Fettit and me about a funny Wizard of Oz Madtv skit and coincidentally this morning when I pulled up Youtube (ooking for a clip for another blog entry I've been working on) there it was right on the front page.

I think its cute.... so I have included it below ... but it doesn't help me get a costume.

I have one day before the party........ What should my costume be?

Hey Chris here's an idea, You can be Glinda the Good witch, go to your Local thrift store, they always have big poofy gowns, or even wedding gowns to use as the dress, make a crown outta cardboard, cover in silver paint, glitter or even foil if need be, get a pair of silver heels, or cover in same as crown, and you can get a wand at any dollar store, or make one if need be.

The thrift store may even have a witch costume to convert into a wicked witch lemme know how ya make out!!!

Chris have you asked any of the staff working at the stores to check for plus size gowns, sometimes they will check the back for you.keep me posted!!!!

Or you could go as the "Tin man's Heart" that's easy, take card board or poster board, make it red and flashy, wear a red turtle neck, or black underneath...to "drag it up", wear black or red Panty hose and silky boxers underneath, along with a great pair of heels!!!lemme know what ya think!!

I looked for an AmVets store.. and NOPE. We have an organization but no store.

I checked several of the online storees and the timeline is tight. NO one has the Wicked Witch costume I want.. they all are out... There were other costumes at one place that could still get it here by tomorrow but I know UPS and Fed Ex delivery to my house after 6 pm... EVERYTIME... so thats cutting it too close.

I love The Tin Man's Heart IDEA... LOVE IT.... But Ill be honest.. Im not that kinda gay... haha... Not so crafty here....

I SOOOOOOOOO APPRECIATE THE HELP HERE THOUGH.... I need to go get in the shower and get shopping.

DAMN IT!
