as promised in this post, here’s a picture of my skunk costume creatively made by my mother when i was in elementary school:
i still have the tail, which is a piece of felt with white fur stripes on it attached to an elastic, velcro-able strap. the ears are still around somewhere, but the turtleneck is long gone, unfortunately. i’ve broken out the skunk costume a couple times since the above picture was taken. once, my freshman year of college, i wore it to the Wayside (a bar/club) for their Halloween costume contest. i didn’t win, but it did keep the majority of slim balls from trying to grind up on me. i guess people aren’t really attracted to skunks…who would have thought?
