to barbarella or not to barbarella

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 3:14 pm

so i’m stuck with a small dilemma at the moment. i have this great costume idea and if i were partying downtown i would wear it and i wouldn’t think twice.


i’m not partying downtown i’m partying in the suburbs with children and i’m just not sure how a pvc catsuit and a pink toy gun will go over with parents.

the good news? the fucking catsuit fits again! the bad news? yeah it’s risque at best. really you guys if i were in town i woudln’t even think about it but i have to say i’m not sure how ten year olds would react to a lady in a pvc catsuit that well… how shall i put this… fits like the proverbial glove.

i won’t even mention the 5 inch platform boots or the blonde wig or the RIDICULOUS amounts of makeup.

so i guess what i’m asking is this. should i wear my tried and true tie dyed dress and blonde wig and green docs and go as ‘hippie barbie’ (pun intended cause yeah, i’m a hippy girl) or should i go with the ballsy costume and maybe offend some kids but at least be wearing things i don’t wear every day?

Or… should i just wear a fucking sheet?

Never fear, tomorrow the pleather comes out for sure. Damn I hate the suburbs, they create the lamest dilemmas.

Oh yeah and in case you missed it:

*clears throat*

doo dah
doo dah
oh doo dah day

going to be happy all day
going to be happy all night
the fucking catsuit
fits again
oh doo dah day

  3. PVC is your friend. Our friend, too. :D

    Congrats on it fitting…though the glow in the dark dress is cool too.

  5. Oh Holy Hell…..Go for the pleather…If the costume fits (unlike mine, see today’s post) wear it and be the hot sexy babe that you are.

    I would not personally be offended as a mother (ok, secretly I would be jealous of your beautiful body, but not worried about my kids seeing you).

    Have a great weekend, Sass!

  7. HEY! I step away for an hour and all hell breaks loose!

    Sass pulls out the PVC… I sit agape knowing that she can pull it off like a champ.

    Also, Im loving the song. And now it’s stuck in my head… bother.


    Err, no hippy barbie hun, s’not you. I vote PVC and that you come to MY party. Bring othercat with ya… and camera.

    err. Speaking of snot (and a veign attempt at getting that visual of you outta my head) I have a short poem for ya:

    “I was walking with my honey,
    his nose was kinda runny.
    I thought that it was funny,
    but it’s s’not.”

    there. I feel better.

  8. I would also like to humbly request that you take photographs of yourself in the PVC, for… uhm… archival purposes. And please post them here. ;)

  13. Sass, it sounds like you have the motivation (and the body) to pull off Barbarella. I’ll have to live vicariously through you because there’s not enough pleather in the world to cover this body.
