Sometimes I theme what I’m wearing for the week.  Like it started as a little secret that I could carry around in my pocket (literally), like I would know, but honestly no one else noticed or cared.  But now I have a blog, and a guest blog, so like maybe 4 of you are reading this now, and it’s public (Welcome back btw, I’m digging your new hair-do!  James!  Love that blazer!).  Now I paint those themes.  And then I put them into a blog.  You’re reading it now (this isn’t a fever dream).

A bunch of you asked for a Halloween week – and I am happy to oblige.  I heart Halloween.  By far my favorite of the pagan holidays, aside from Lupercalia of course.  I decided to spin it as Basic-Halloween-Costume-Tropes, but as actual outfits one might wear.  So in no certain order here are the outfits/costumes/inspiration I’ve worn thus far this week.  Stay tuned tomorrow for the final installment of Halloween Costume For The Day ~ spooky.

If you aren’t busy tonight you should come out to F8 in San Francisco!  They are having a #quickdrawsf live drawing night and I am one of the featured artists!  It’s hosted by the Paint Pens Collective.  Not only will there be live art by awesome artists (that you can buy right after it’s done) there will be costumes annnnd prizes!  WOW!
