Drew and Mimi
The ever so lovely Mimi!
For those of you who need a laugh or may-be a last minute Halloween costume idea. Last year, I talked a co-worker into shaving off his beard, putting on a suit, and blacked rimmed glasses to transform himself into Drew, from the Drew Carry Show. He agreed only if I would dress as Mimi.
I needed help with the make-up, eye lashes and a last minute fitting. Thanks to my mother-in-law and her skillful application of beauty products, between burst of laughter, I was able to prepare for work. Dad took a few picture and hoped I wouldn't brake his camera. I look rather cute don't you think!
The reaction from my co-workers and customers was shocking to say the least. I had one woman came back with her camera to have her picture taken with me. Just a few months ago, I had the need to call a plumber. After a few minutes, he asked me if I worked at the camera store. I said yes. I remember you, he said, you were dressed in drag for Halloween! I reminded him that I was dressed as Mimi from the Drew Carry Show not in drag. My fifteen minutes of fame relived all over again. All because of my costume choice in 2008. This year will be very different, no wings, eyeshadow or looking like a woman.
I hope you each have a fun and safe Halloween with all the ghosts, goblins, and yes, even a big guy in drag! Happy Halloween.
