GIVEAWAY: Free Cat Costume (Kind of)

I’m sure you all remember the cat suit I wore in one of Le Costume posts here which feature Forever 21 clothes that could easily be worn as Halloween costumes. Well, just in time for Halloween, I’ve decided to raffle off the suit (brand new – NOT the actual suit I wore. That would be … weird. But if you’d like me to put it on before I send it, that can be arranged, you sick, sick person.) to one lucky reader!

Lace Leopard Jacket: $19.80 (size L)

Lace Leopard Leggings: $13.80 (size L)

All you’ll need is some fuzzy ears and a tail – BAM! Cat Lady Halloween costume (the good kind).

All you have to do to put yourself in the running for this Halloween costume is leave a comment on this post (make sure to include your email in the form so I can get a hold of you for your mailing address later) and tell us all a story about your favorite Halloween costume, EVER!

PLEASE, try to remember to place your email in the form as I want to get this to the winner in AMPLE time for them to wear it on Halloween. I purchased both in large because I figured the stretchy material will form to fit whatever size and certainly won’t be baggy on a size small.

I’ll select a winner next Tuesday at midnight, 10/5!

Le Costume Post: Part 3

Day by day, bit by maddening patchwork, leatherette and leopard print bit, Forever 21 continues to release key pieces of costume outfits on the unsuspecting general public, disguised (poorly) as regular everyday clothing.

The following cardigan is a happy inclusion in the unintentional costume category.

Purl Knit Open Cardigan: $32.80

Part of what I hear Forever 21 is internally calling their “Homeless Haute Couture” collection, this long cardigan lacks style, form, function and all sense of appropriateness for life in general.

It also probably smells like it looks, which is like unwashed ass pickled in street stank. No matter how hard I try and no matter how much I know it not to be true, I keep imaging the model’s face covered in a patchy beard with an even patchier grin peaking out of it.

I have issues.

Forever 21, Spare Change? What? Fuck you, I know you have some!

Le Costume Post: Part 2

Look! Up in the club! It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no it’s …


Fitted Leatherette Dress: $24.80

Yes, Club Girl. Faster than a speeding skank on Sunset Blvd., more powerful than an authentic can of Fourloko and able to leap tall doormen in a single bound!

Club Girl’s abilities include Super Head, incredible Hater-Vision which allows her to spot “all the bitches that be hatin’ up in here,” and is imbued with impenetrable silicone breast bags able boost both her earning potentional as a mild mannered go-go dancer and also boost her sense of self worth. Her powerful Bumpit of Truth (not pictured here) gives her the ability to “tell it like it is.” This power could be used to solve any number of world issues, but is most often used to say things like, “That bitch needs to stop eating, for reals. She should NOT be wearing that. WHAT!? I tell it like it is.”

Club Girl’s only weakness is Last Call and the Harsh Realities of the Next Morning, which sap her of her powers and can reduce her to a clingy whiner who wants to “get some breakfast” or “hang out later today, or something.” The antidote for this is aspirin, greasy foods and the Morning After Pill.

(Cape, thigh high boots, Bumpit of Truth and bag full of nondescript pills and multi-colored condoms not included in this costume.)

Forever 21, WTF?
