The Real Housewives of Bertie County

(Note: this should have been posted about a week ago. My apologies.)

I mentioned in a previous post about how terrible I am at coming up with Halloween costumes. I'm just not a fan of spending money on a costume that makes me look like a streetwalker, or worse, that I'll never wear again. 

Hence my roomie and my's decision to dress as our favorite Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Since I'm obsessed with Lisa Vander-fabulous, so I went with a tight Mad Men style dress and borrowed a neighbor's stuffed dog to fill the role of Jiggy. (Sadly, the 15 million dollar house wasn't included in the costume.) 



Kyle Richards, Mrs. White from Clue, and Lisa Vanderpump (with Jiggy)
The real Kyle and Lisa
I found out as we were arriving that we were going to be playing a "real-life" version of Clue, aka a murder mystery game. What happened to good old fashioned parties where one person drinks too much and the rest sit around and watch as they make a fool of themselves? Way less work on my part. (Unless I am the person in question.)

However, beggars can't be choosers when it comes to social events where I live. So I went. I played. I gave up halfway through participated reasonably well. (Though none of the players would accept my bribes, which would really have upped the excitement.) And guess what? I won.

The moral of the story? Bribery does get you somewhere. (Strong drinks help as well.)  Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Haha, this is too funny. I am not a hige fan of spending a lot on Halloween either, so I totally am on board with the clever costume idea. Not to mention I am obsessed with the housewives of enter-city-name-here so this is perfect!

Yes! I hate spending money on outfits I'll only wear once. Hate it hate it hate it. I think next year it would pack a lot more punch if we had a whole crew of Housewives though...
