Artist Date - Week 1
This post is late. I should have written it up sometime during the week of April 13th. That didn't happen, though, so here we are.
I don't know why I struggle with this task, but I do. I'm not even sure my "date" was really a date. I needed some costume pieces for the 80s Fest in Frankenmuth that I plan on attending on April 24th. Each year I attempt to do something just a little bit different from the year before. This year I really wanted to go as Toni Basil from her Mickey video.
I looked online for a cheerleading costume in the right colors. The problem is the sweater. I could find a skirt, but the top was impossible. This has led me to the conclusion that if I plan on wearing this next year I will need to learn how to sew. Or beg my mom to make it for me. Frankly, though, I think learning to sew costumes would be a good thing because I also enjoy dressing up for RenFest and Comic Con.
Yes, I really should learn how to sew.
In the meantime, though, I was still in need of a costume for this year's 80s Fest, so I decided to spend an hour or so at Party City looking at their collection of 80s apparel and accessories. I could have gone overboard. Easily. Somehow I managed to pick up just a few fun pieces and leave the rest of the store intact.
I really wanted to buy Ken some MC Hammer pants, but somehow stopped myself.
I don't know if this techically counts as an "artists date" or not, but I figured the most important instruction was obeyed: I went shopping by myself. I spent time alone doing something I don't normally do.
