Here we are with Part 2 of the Halloween festivities. Both my sweetheart and I lost our mothers to cancer in 2012 and after a few years of not being in a social mood, we decided that we were ready to have a party. Halloween was on a Saturday this year – a perfect night for a party.
My sweetheart was Tina Turner, and I was His Purple Highness, Prince. I wanted to practice doing drag makeup on my sweetie but unfortunately, we ran out of time (and he ran out of patience). So I did the best that I could. Despite my lack of drag makeup skills, Ms. Turner was the hit of the party!
Here’s our Halloween costumes. My pieces were purchased on Amazon and Ebay. I also could’ve went darker with the “facial hair”, but I didn’t want to mess it up and make it look like dirt.
For my sweetie’s costume, I went to online stores that sold clothing and shoes for crossdressers, since he’s a pretty big guy:
It was a great party! Fun and low-key, having a great time with great people. Everyone loved seeing a large, 6′ 2″ (6′ 7″ in heels) Tina Turner with a deep voice! There was even a jam session since my sweetie and his friends are musicians.
Here are more Halloween pictures:
This was one of the best Halloweens I’ve had in a long time. It was nice to be together with friends and family after 3 years of not entertaining. I compiled a short video that includes my sweetheart walking in heels and a live jam session.
Love & Shimmies,
