Slice of Lime-Costume Reveal

Did I go as a stalker, a chirovangelist, a patient herder, or a nag?

The answer is...

None of the above!

I went as a tacky tourist.

I didn't have to tell anyone I'd just returned from my first of 40 visits to the exciting destination of Chirovia, land of straight spines.

Basically, I was unwilling to spend any money on a costume and I could assemble this from my closet and Mr. Lime's. The other ideas would have required more effort to produce and I'm way too lazy for that when it comes to costuming. I was tempted just to wear my tie dye and call myself a hippie but that was too easy.


However,

You could go as a hunch back and be the poster child for chiropractics!!!!

I may need to see if I can manage that costume for Friday. I LOVE the idea!

Call me Eye-gor.

Hey!!! I saw you the last time I was on vacation didn't I??

Gledwood said...

... Wow, I almost mistook you for a Brit there!

Beach Bum said...

Jazz is right, I saw you about two dozen times at Disneyworld last time and you never said hi.

Kat said...

Haha! That is awesome! Well done. :)

Desmond Jones said...

Wow, that's. . . tacky.

Would you mind taking our photo for us?

What's with Gledwood, taking the Brit name in vain?! Know just what he means - though the presence of an umbrella and a bowler hat would have made the suggestion more likely!

Hey, It WAS you that I saw wandering the ruins of Hampi!

That is fabulous! Love the zinc!

Did you know I am the poster child for my allergy clinic because they require you to stay 20 minutes in the waiting room in case you have a systemic reaction to your shots.
Everyone is always complaining about having to wait, and they find it hard to believe an allergic reaction could occur....so that when it happened to me twice they took a picture of me and put it up on the wall and called me the poster child for why 20 minutes is mandatory.

It's a lovely shot, really...ack.

Now can we talk about why you have that shirt, and that pant in your closet at all?
:P

OK...If I EVER wear dark sox with sneakers???
SHOOT ME!!!

Craver Vii said...

First thing that came to mind when I saw the socks... she dresses like my dad!

Moannie said...

No no Gledwood, that is definately an American tourist...I've seen them. Though they are becoming rarer to spot you'll be glad to know.

Thanks for the props Lime!!!

I too am wondering why those shorts reside in your house at all!!!! I'd have to make them disappear for sure!!!

Hope you enjoyed your day!!!

Love the zinced nose and the fanny pack :-)

BTExpress said...

Love the costume and I'm glad it really is a costume. Or is it? I mean you do have those clothes in the closet and not packed away in an old trunk somewhere.

I love it! That's the same reason I always went as a hobo as a kid... I had the outfit. hahahaha
You look great lime.

Cosima said...

:D Lime, you are ready for a day in Rome! Love the Bermudas!

(M)ary said...

those shorts would be cool with a different top and shoes!

Jocelyn said...

It's the black knee socks that clinch it.

Cheesy said...

Dudette! I am strangely aroused?

Hilary said...

Too funny. I love the black socks (could only be worse with sandals) .. they balance the zinc on your nose. ;)
