One of the professional photographers who snapped my picture at the costume contest last weekend sent me the best shot this morning. Wahoo! The event was the Oh Susannah! Halloween show, and we had a riot as usual. Oh Susannah! is a live theatre production that takes the form of a talk show blended with a variety show, and every Halloween the members of the audience dress up and compete for prizes and prestige. This year, I was victorious. I was also tremendously uncomfortable as I perched on edge of a theatre seat balancing a giant painting and trying not to scratch my gluesticked eyebrows.
Did I mention that the show’s host, Susannah, is a man dressed like a woman? I think the actor who plays Susannah can appreciate my battle with the gluestick. Certainly, he’s brilliant and the character is hilarious.
Here I am up close in my Mona Lisa costume. The photo is distorted by the type of lens, I think, so keep in mind that my head appears much larger here than it is in real life. I promise I do not look like a renaissance Pez dispenser on a day to day basis.
Special thanks to William Lau for taking this photo and sending it my way!
