Angry Eyebrows

Here is the progression of my Halloween costume this year:

black wig First, I scored a black wig for $6 at Target…
belly Then I made a fake pregnant belly using pantyhose, fiberfill, and rubber bands…
IMG_9500 I collected a few more bits, including black liquid eyeliner…
chola And, bang! Chola!

Here is one definition of Chola from
hardcore latina gangbangers. They usually have thin, arched, angry looking tattooed-on or penciled-on eyebrows, brown or dark red lip liner, …tats, Converse or Nikes, flannel shirts, lots of gold jewlrey (with their name and crosses), crunchy gelled or moussed hair either down or gelled in a high perfect ponytail either straight back or gelled in a design, and they go out with cholos.

us I got myself off to my friend Kristin’s Halloween party. Here I am with two of my good knitta friends, Steven and Meg, in Alison‘s awesome party photobooth.

So much fun. I always see Halloween as the first wild night of the holiday season. Onward!

  1. me too Marri – I thought you were going to be OCTO-MOM – so glad you didn’t

    I love your costume idea, brilliant and very creative!

  2. I love it when all of my worlds collide — I’ve known Allison since 2002, so it is amusing to think that you (who I discovered online in what, 2005? Go team Pink! Go Knit!) were at her house for Halloween in 2009. Crazy, just crazy I tell you!

    That costume seriously ROCKS.
