We’re a little stir crazy here. Though we’re happy to be safe and sound after Hurricane Sandy, we’re ready for NYC life to get back to normal. For us, normal is travelling to other boroughs for our jobs and getting to any part of the city whenever we want to. That’s not really an option right now. We’re just kinda stuck here in Queens. I’m so sick of my apartment I can’t even tell you.
When my future ex-husband Craig invited us to come poke around the TDF Costume Collection, I got super excited. Even if I didn’t have a major case of cabin fever, I’d want to go to TDF. That place is magic. I’ve been to their bag sale (40 bucks for whatever you can shove into a giant bag! I got an Oleg Cassini dress and lots of spikey-studdy denim vests) and have already fallen in love with this place. A trip to TDF is a perfect Halloween outing.
Look, you can read all about what TDF Costume Collection does here. I just want to post pictures of shiny things.
Here’s our host with the most, Craig, looking as magnificent as usual:
I love him so much it hurts my soul.
After making Craig spin around like a disco ball for our merriment and amusement, we went off to explore the collection.
I like to call TDF the Costume Library. Just the labels and signage get me squee-ing and over-excited:
I did a lot of ooohing and ahhing at sequins and shoes and whatnots. My apologies to the staff of TDF, who constantly had to hear me cry: “OH MY G-D I LOVE THIS I NEED THIS! THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN!”
Then we just started trying stuff on and mugging for the camera.
I think the sweetest thing we found was this bunny hat. Seriously. I think I could find a way to work this piece of wonder into my every day costume.
Then we went off to stalk Edie Falco:
