I found this old photo (2016?) from a friend’s birthday party and realized I’d never posted it. Now that I look back at it I think it would make a good roller derby or roller disco Halloween outfit. It is an easy last minute costume!
Recalling the night – now that my circle and I are thirtiy-ish there is a mad dash to be a kid again. Trying things that we haven’t done before is essential and a birthday party at a club is a rarity now. So the choice for a girlfriend’s birthday was a Christian roller disco rink in Mississauga…any excuse for a good theme party.
When I got there around 8:00 p.m. there was a line of 12 year olds outside the door waiting to get in. Seeing that I was confused and fully regretted my risqué outfit. But at least the photos can give inspiration for a lazy and easy Halloween costume.
I went for a dark more gothic roller disco look. I paired the statement gold sequinned shorts with a black off the shoulder shirt, wide black fishnets and knee highs. The knee highs were thick in case I fell (it only happened once). I had never used old style skates like this before but it was a challenge My Bff pictured fell at least three times in an hour; but he made me proud by getting up every single time! Persistence!
