As always, our Hallowe'en plans are last minute and our costumes thrown together. Last year, I was caught up in the buzz about Amelia Earhart, caused by the release of the movie, Amelia, and intended to go as Ms. E or some other aviatrix (like the Flying Flapper...whose nickname I wanted to steal, so I have), but I just couldn't get the costume together in time. The gorgeous Miss Stephanie Valentine's aviation photoshoot soon followed and I knew I too had to let my inner lady pilot fly free at some point, though I freely admit Ms. V is by far the dishiest aviatrix EVER..no wonder it landed her an amazing Pinup title. Anywhooo, since I recently scored a pair of vintage 1930s "breeches" (called jodhpurs by some) not too long ago, I decided that this is what I'm going to wear to the Hallowe'en party at the local tomorrow night. I don't own any vintage pilot goggles or headgear, etc, so I had to improvise the rest (yes, those are swim goggles and a toque with earflaps on my head ;)). My #1 resource on 20s-30s aviatrix fashion = The Painted Woman. I'm not sure if I'll be back on the grid until Monday, so, just in case, I bid you Happy Hallowe'en!
