Geriatric Gothdom

Right, nails have been painted purple. All I have to do now is find black lace-up boots (hope I didn’t throw them out), don black skirt and purple Victorian-style top, black dangly earrings, bracelet, necklace and ring, cover face with v. pale powder, do purple eyeshadow, black eyeliner, black mascara, and finally put on and adjust long black wig.

I am going to a costume party tonight. I am going to be a somewhat middle-aged Goth. Will have to go without glasses as the look just doesn’t work with them (can you be a Goth with glasses?), so I shall probably be a myopic astigmatic Goth as well. Son is a skeleton and The Grouch will wear a Frankenstein mask. It’ll have to do.
