Half-Assed Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga

Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt this unfortunate series of Catastrophic Events to bring you photos of the Halloween costume I was banging on about on Black Friday, shortly before the phone call from Heart Internet saying, “Oh, hai, we just deleted your business. Good luck sorting THAT out!”

So, as I mentioned, we’d been invited to a Halloween party on Saturday night, and despite the fact that we’d only had a few hours of restless, tortured sleep on Friday (I don’t know what Terry dreamt about, but I dreamt about… buying foundation. Huh.), we decided we’d still go. By Saturday evening we’d managed to get all of Terry’s clients’ websites back online, and were convinced we had copies of the missing content from ours, so even although we knew we still had many, many hours of work ahead of us, we thought it might be a good idea to have a break from all of the MEGA! STRESS! and spend some time with people who WOULDN’T scare the living daylights out of us both. Although, if someone had turned up dressed as a Heart Internet server or employee, that might have done the trick.

Just a few short hours after the Catastrophic Event, then, we found ourselves heading out dressed as…

Lady Gaga and the Terminator!

Now, this lady gaga halloween costume didn’t work out quite the way I’d intended it to. The plan had been for me to go shopping on Saturday afternoon to pick up the extra bits and pieces I’d need for a full-on Lady Gaga look, but, of course, after Black Friday my heart wasn’t really in it, so it all ended up being a bit last minute.

Still, we had a fun night, and it was great to be able to just relax and not think about everything that was going on with the websites.  And I really liked my false eyelashes, although not enough to want to advertise them for free on eBay, so please don’t take that as an invitation to steal my photos:

Terry doesn’t want to model cybernetic eyes, either…
