I have a paisley peasant blouse that when I wear it, Kyle calls me Mama Cass. I’ve seen her on TV before (and on Scooby Doo!) and they always make her out to be this big nasty heiferball. We all have heard the ham sandwich thing. (it’s not true!) If you haven’t, it can be found on google.
So I was reading a friend’s blog (A Spicy Boy, A Cat, and My Fat Ass)and came across a hippy costume she was reviewing that I really liked alot. And being a little on the so fat I could die side, it’s hard to find a good Halloween costume. Like the ones at party stores SAY plus size but they fit a size 12. I’m sorry, but I don’t consider 12 a plus size! So the only thing you really can pick is the least flattering moomoo/circus tent and hope you can fix the neckline to fall lower so you can show off at least a little bit of skin. But usually I end up making my own costume like Beth (Dog the Bounty Hunters wife) or an emo kid or I could just crossdress. It sucks.
Yes, this is me as a redneck last Halloween.
So basically I commented about not wanting to look like Mama Cass. But after I said that I googled her pictures to see some of her outfits and they’re really not all that bad. And she really was a very pretty woman. Big girl partied with Jimi Hendrix!!!!
So I’m sorry Mama Cass. I will wear my paisley shirt with pride from now on and I think I’ll be a hippy for Halloween because if I had just a little more double chin, we kind of look alike. I could totally pull it off.
If you can’t beat fat, at least laugh about it!
