Kilts - only good with schoolgirl outfits

It's St. Andrew's Day, one of the days I can wear a skirt casually, but it's a man-skirt so it's no fun...

Star Wars

I included "Slave Leia" in my Halloween costume desires, but more as an example of a harem girl outfit, and as modelled by Kristen Bell. The original Star Wars movies came out pre-adolescence, so Leia herself doesn't press my buttons (Han Solo kind of does... ;) )

With their richness, complexity and elements of disguise, Queen Amidala does rather appeal to me. Although there are a only a few of her many costumes I'd really like to try on, like her wedding dress...

So I'm wondering if Daisy Ridley as (character name not yet confirmed) will stay as tomboyish as she looks in that first trailer. I kinda hope she does - Leia was a tomboyish princess. But I also hope there's someone in the new films who does get something fabulous to wear. ;)

Thanksgiving with Marilyn Monroe

I never saw these before!

Proof that "Sexy Whatever" Costumes aren't new...

Give her something to do!

The makers of Gotham were playing with us when Barbara was Put On A Bus. (And she was dressed far too nicely for a bus ride.)

Too short (and not my hemline)

Spent a lovely weekend properly dressed... hate having to go back to male clothes.

What say I slip into something a lot less comfortable?

Some plot might help, but...

Barbara in Gotham has nothing to do as a character except lounge around her huge penthouse and wear beautiful clothes.

I wish I had her problems.

Okay, just spent a few minutes web window shopping... could spend more on one dress and ensemble than I have on clothes all year. Oh, to be rich as well as pretty.

I'll take... oh, be honest, I'll take all of them.

Party clothes in high-street stores. Dresses for some, tuxes for others. I hate tuxes...

Real proper winter... time for wrapping up when outside... and dolling up when inside.

I would like there to be life after death, but reincarnation in particular sounds fun. Maybe I want to be a 50s housewife because I used to be one...

Currently watching Intruders on the BBC, which is a horror version of it, where the old souls take over from the new lives and push them aside, and are generally not nice people. They'd have to be secretive, and probably dangerous, to keep proof down.

I've seen some reincarnation TG fiction here and there... fantasised about having lived another life myself. Maybe I should get writing...

I'm busy for a while so I'll keep this short.

Like that skirt.

New makeup!

I didn't get to dress for Halloween itself... but I maaaaay have dressed once or twice since. ;)

That dress. Those boots. That hair. Yes please.

Strawberry Switchblade. This may have been another early-ish influence, from just a few months before I tried on my first bra. Looking back now... want that look SO much.

And, well, one more.

Saw it, want it.

Anna Paquin costumed as Little Red Riding Hood in Trick r Treat. The reveal panning up from the high heels to the full skirt with a glimpse of petticoat to the corset to the pigtails certainly sold it for me...
