Today’s costume is not so casual, but one I’ve been wanting to do for a while.

This summer I spotted a kid playing in my neighborhood dressed exactly like this safety sign. I have no idea if it was on purpose or what, but I had to do it too.
I traveled back to the town of Twin Peaks for this costume. The Log Lady was one of my favorites ever. Here’s my Laura Palmer. It’s a super easy one since it’s just some plastic, and makeup.
