Obviously if you are reading this, then you know I’m a Proud Kentuckian. After all, my blog is called ‘Fabulous in Fayette,’ and is about anything related to Lexington and Kentucky. It definitely shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone.
I love Halloween, and I love dressing up. Over the years, I would never put any thought into my costume. I would just go to a costume store and pay $60 to be a sexy whatever. Over the past few years, I wanted to wear more clever costumes, as well as creating my own with stuff that I already had or could use again.
In 2014, I went as Jessica Day from New Girl. I already dress similar to her and my hair was the same as hers back then, so it wasn’t really a stretch. In 2015, I went as Pizza Rat from the viral video (which has 9.57 million views). Everyone (and even strangers) know me for my love of pizza. I mean, you should see the amount of pizza related apparel I own. I even own a pizza purse! In fact, in one year, I went to grand openings for four different pizza restaurants! Pizza Rat just fit and was perfect for me, since it was basically my spirit animal. However, it was in fact one of the most popular costumes of 2015.
So, in 2016, I wanted to top last year, and I wanted to do something completely unique and original. I didn’t want my costume to be a copy or something that has been done to death. I was laying in bed one night, around September 25, and trying to decide what I wanted to be. All of a sudden, the idea came to me!
It was perfect! It combined my love of many things: being creative, Kentucky, bourbon, and it was a DIY project.
