I just copied this via Facebook.
Unibrow drawn on.
Floral dress below the knees.
Red or pink scarf tied on your shoulders.
A minimum of three flowers in your hair.

I’m so in … anyone have a floral dress I can borrow? @MellissaRhodes?


#4

Nah dude. That’s actually what’s holding me back. My wardrobe is lacking. Maybe a trip to a thrift store is in order.


#5

I have a costume that includes a unibrow…

Except the unibrow is blue and so is the hair.

And the dress is a labcoat.

And the costume involves me drinking from a florence flask


#6

That seems close enough to me… wait…what’s in the flask?


#7

Listen Morty, I hate to break it to you, but what people calls “love” is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage.

AUUUGH!!!

NO SZECHUAN SAUCE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Saw this at DFW Airport yesterday afternoon.


#9

Frida would smile at that comparison.
15 page report on the woman - I know me some Frida.


#10

I’m tempted. I have a mostly red shawl. Not sure if I STILL own a floral dress…


#11

Thrift store baby or just come over to my house - I have a toonnnnnn of clothes. Just for some good fun. I have my little. Going to try very very hard to attend just for the funky mess of humanity it’s going to be.


#12

If folks want to, I can help them make some quick fora dresses,
Not fitted, SCA T tunic style, You would need a belt with it, but it would
work, There might even be some fabric in the Member Exchange shelf


#13

Is it too late to hit you up for help? I totally want to go but am really bad at costumes.


#14

Is it too late, or does the offer of help still stand? I’m a shiny new DMS member and have just discovered Talk. :blush:


#15

If you can grab some fabric and be at the space on Wed, I will be willing
to help you, the dress will not take long to sew up, You need a solid piece of pink
fabric fore the shawl and flowered fabric for the dress, bright is better
If so let me know what time you can be there, I will adjust my plans to fit

I would say tonight, but I have a dog that is terrified of fireworks and lots
of neighbors that love them, I will spend tonight with a lap full of trembling
40 lbs of a lab cross,


#16

Thank you, that’s super kind, but I found a fugly dark dress with calla lilies at Goodwill. Length is right and it has flowers, but doesn’t look right. Hopefully I won’t be rejected. I know nothing about buying fabric or sewing.

Next question: Is there a Makerspace group going for reals?


#18

Doesn’t seem like a group is forming.


#19

Fair enough. I’m definitely going. Have my costume mostly in place and have registered. By the by, did original post say July 8th? It’s Thursday, July 6th. I’m looking forward to it. Sounds weird and wonderful!

Did anyone see their pretty face in the observer? http://www.dallasobserver.com/slideshow/calling-all-fridas-9639238

Looked like an amazing turnout! I had a couple friends participate and they said it was kinda freaky to see so many Frida’s.
