Cripes! LOL! I don't even know. Was she supposed to be a specific dead person? She won the very creepy costume award, though. ;D

kelly, yes she's someone specific. always nice for a mom to see her kid with plastic over her face. :O

OMG! That is one scary picture!!!
I'm thinking of this movie where I saw something like this, but I'm drawing a blank on the name.

anne frasier said...

if you saw the whole costume, you'd probably figure it out. i'll give clues later if nobody gets it.

If it is who I went as in 1992, she is Laura Palmer, "wrapped in plastic." To be authentic, by the way, she needs to have bird peck marks on her body. I'm guessing, though, since your daughter is too young to be a Twin Peaks fan, that she's some other cadaver from a pop culture that has passed me by.

I dont know who she is, I dont want to know who she is...she's a little creepy with that plastic. THAT is scary. Awesome idea for a costume, whoever the dead person is. :)

DING!!
mary louisa, you're right. laura palmer. i can't believe you went as her too! i think twin peaks has remained fairly popular, or maybe it's had a revival. one of the theaters here had a twin peaks marathon not long ago.

WOOHOO! Do I win the donuts? Please say I do.

Yes, my husband and I and all our friends were Twin Peaks fanatics. We would gather at someone's house or apartment, videotape it as we watched, then re-watch it to catch more clues and discuss the storyline. And of course, drink ourselves blind. FREAKS! But what do you expect from grad students?

the prize? cherry pie, and some damn fine coffee. :D

Anne,

I see you've passed the special genes onward. Bravo! That costume rocks!

First thing I thought was Laura Palmer. Twin Peaks had the best first season of just about any TV show I can think of.

Couple that with Blue Velvet and Lynch is a certified genius.

Mary Louisa said...

or certifiable...

anne frasier said...

i can't figure that guy out. i wonder how much of the weird, genius things that happen are intentional, or serendipity. once example: some of his actors are so bad -- is that deliberate? because the bad acting almost always adds to the scenes and keeps everything a beat off.

I think he very much likes that you can't figure him out. But he's definitely "different."
