“Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvelous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.” //
And finally, for my Third Act… I went with maybe my all-time FAV costume, that I’ve EVER worn. It all came together very randomly, and last minute. You guys know how much I love “Lord of the Rings”, and pretty much anything to do with Elves, or any type of Fantastical Creature. As soon as I got this dress on, this crown.. and oh my GOD THE CAPE….. I was just so in love. I said to Ryan “I wish I could just wear this cape out every day!”. This felt like a very “me” look, haha.
I had a little Bow and Arrow, that was A LOT harder to shoot than I anticipated (I’m not much of a Katniss Everdeen)! I also had this beautiful Golden Crown. I initially ordered this crown online for my WEDDING, because I thought it was like 1/3 of the size. When it arrived in the mail, I was obsessed with it.. but it was just a little bit “much” for the Wedding. I want to go for the whole Elf Princess vibe for my Wedding, but maybe 1/2 the size? Regardless, this crown had a destiny. It was PERFECT for my Elf Queen Costume.
I’ve never worn an outfit, that I loved THIS much. I think I need to go put the Cape back on right now.
I hope you all had an incredible Halloween! Can’t wait to see you all very soon with my “October Wrap Up”. Also my WEDDING is in 21 days, eek!
