Give me 20 minutes and I'll show you how you- yes YOU!- can change your life.

Seeing as I seem to be posting something every 2.5 seconds this week, I'll give you ONE more idea for tomorrow.

I think this would work for both the ladies and the gents, as long as the boy in question is comfortable enough with his manhood to put a pair of tights on.

Remember though- and this is important- Cut a hole to breathe through.
Don't forget.

If you have the time, you could fashion the bag to look like a purse.
And if you're a girl, you could add cute shoes.

Remember, I have a 20-minute limit- cut me some slack.
It took a while to stuff all of that bubble wrap in there. (But hey! if you get drunk and fall down later you'll be your own party favor!)

Meet Prunella Von Fiberbottom:

*She appears to be on the run again- maybe all that fiber finally caught up with her.

She's (or he's) the most fun you'll have with two lawn and leaf bags and a whole mess of bubblewrap.

And once again, you're welcome.

OMG! That is hysterical!

I was totally looking for a costume I can bartend in tomorrow night. This just might be it!

And thank you for my postcard. You frickin' rule.

Hilarious as always. You never disappoint!

You did NOT just dress up as a prune.

Oh wait. You did.

You're the best.

Well, I guess you're not called Whiskeymarie for nothing. Those bottles in the background get emptier with every picture you post!!!

You crack me up.

This is a lawsuit waiting to happen, despite your repeated warnings.

I almost typed "laughsuit" on accident, and that seemed pretty appropriate too, actually.

MommasWorld said...

I think I will just wrap myself up with tinfoil and carry around a yellow couch pillow. (baked potato with a butter pat)

Love your ideas!

Nature Girl said...

you ROCK! I so wanna come over to your house to play dress up someday, we could have a blast!

I have a question for you...it's a cooking question..
can you roast squash seeds and eat them like pumpkin seeds? Acorn, butternut, delicata, carnival etc? I have no idea if they're edible, but I'm so very tempted.

Whiskeymarie said...

Shannon- Take it, use it, love it as your own.

Anon- (Me, blushing) Aw, shucks.

NPW- Oh, snap!

Patti- That would be a post in itself- "The incredible shrinking booze stash"

McGone- but I had a disclaimer- a DISCLAIMER!!!

MW- Oh, I wish I would have thought of that...

Stacie- According to
"All squash contain edible seeds, which are commonly removed before cooking. To remove the seeds, just cut the squash in half lengthwise and using a spoon scoop out the seeds. Make sure to scoop out all of the fibers that are around the seeds, these fibers don't soften up when the squash is cooked and they will remain stringy. If you want to eat the seeds, simply pull off all the loose fibers, pat them dry with paper towels and place them on a cookie sheet. Allow them to dry overnight. The next day, drizzle them with oil, season with salt and bake at 350 F until they are golden."
There you go. And, I'll play dress-up with you anytime, my dear.
Oh, that sounded unseemly- you know what I mean.

And hey, if Halloween tends to make you suicidal, just don't bother with the air holes.

ps said...

love it!

dguzman said...

I just want to know who took the photo. Self-timer or Mr. Whiskey?

Whiskeymarie said...

Self timer- I can't subject the Mr. to me dressed in "odd" outfits again.

Suze said...

Hey, Mr. WM can just put a white sheet over himself and go as your toilet paper. Granted you'll get top billing.

You never cease to make me laugh.

Stacey said...

Is it wrong that this post makes me feel like I have to poop ?

Boxer rebel said...

I am sitting in a public cafe laughing so hard that I am getting strange looks, thanks. And I mean that thanks.

abbersnail said...

If I were a man, and if you were a singleton, I would propose to you RIGHT NOW.

That is all.

Stefanie said...

That almost works as one of those singing California Raisins, too. You know, if you want to go retro with it.

Metalia said...


That is all.

JRE Writes said...

ha ha!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

You've never looked sexier.

Nocturnal said...

LOL, that's one of the best one's I've seen since a girl I saw with a hangar through her body; yes she was going as Joan Crawford's daughter.


Lisa said...

Too freakin' funny!!!

Stacy said...

Obviously, you need to get out of the house again. Call me for some quality drinking time.

ps) you likey your new art??

lizgwiz said...

You are obviously some sort of costume savant.


Butrfly Garden said...

Brillig was right about you. You come up with the craziest and funniest things and leave everyone else saying, "How DOES she do it??"

Sorry I haven't been around. I'll catch up this weekend!

Fran said...

I prefer to think of you as an organic, nutrient rich sun-dried plum.

F*ck it. Prune works.

Shannon Erin said...

Every time I look at this picture, I giggle. It's helping me get through a very stressful week. Thanks!

Where the heck do you find the time to do this kind of stuff? And what kind of hallucinogen are you on? You've got to be high on SOMETHING to come up with these very original and hilarious costumes!
