You Know, I’m No Good

You know, I’m no good.  No, really I am.  As soon as I learned of Amy Winehouse’s untimely death this summer, I knew exactly what I was going to be for Halloween.

Was it too soon to be a dead Amy Winehouse with autopsy scar? 

Probably.  But it was funny as hell, especially since Allan dressed as a medical examiner.  See, no good, I tell ya.

I kept my costume under wraps for months, but I was dying to reveal it.  Although my friends requested Lady Gaga to make another appearance, I assured them that this year’s costume wouldn’t disappoint them.  I would be a dead ringer for another famous person.

With the help of eBay for the right wig and tattoos (and my SIL Kirsten who helped apply the tats), I think I pulled off Amy Winehouse amazingly.  I went for the Rehab look and with a bottle of Southern Comfort and a syringe in my hair for props, I stayed in character the entire party to be true to my character.

But I couldn’t help from being myself!  Every time I smiled big or laughed, my magnetic diamond lip stud fell off which would make me laugh even harder and difficult to stick it back on. So, I just stuck the diamond stud in new places all night long.

My friend, Chrissy hosted our annual Halloween party this year and as usual, the costumes and food were fabulous.

Everyone’s spirits were certainly lifted.

Well, at least Amy Winehouse’s were.


Next week for Music Monday, I will be sharing my favorite Halloween jamz.  I would love to hear what Halloween songs move your spirit.  Link up and play along…if you dare.  Muhahahahahahaha!

    omg The picture under the video with your hubby I thought at first it was Amy until I started reading. You’re one eerie girl, girlfriend! I’ll tell you that for sure. What a fabulous party. I think all my friends are stick in the muds. Nobody has a Halloween party around here. I had a couple but two years in a role hardly anyone showed up & that sucks considering all the work I did. Have a rockin’ week & love love the pics and songs. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, Denise – you look like the late diva sooo much! Really super good job on the transformation. I saw this gal in check out at Walmart, and I commented to her how much she looks like Cameron Diaz except she didn’t have blonde hair. Gosh, her eyes were just as gorgeous blue and her mannerism was very similar to Cameron’s. Anyhow, she said, “Now, I know who’ll I’ll be for Halloween.” I wonder if she really is going to pull it off and if so how it turned out? Oh well that will remain a mystery to me. But, you look great as Amy Winehouse, only better. You’re still breathing! =D Thanks for visiting yesterday. Long story short, DH took the day off to spend with me, so I was in the spotlight twice.
