Over the weekend I took this photo to send to my sister:
She recently had given me a haunted mansion necklace and I was showing her that I would be wearing it that night when I went to see the play “Wicked”.
I have seen Wicked before and really enjoy the storyline…and during the intermission, as we sat talking, my brother and I were pulling up cast photos and reading about those who were in the play. And that is when my brother captured a screen shot on his phone to point something out:
I had gone to the play twinning with Elphaba! I was wearing long black dress that pulls in at the waist…and had ruffles at the both the shoulder and the collar. And I of course was wearing it with heeled black boots….all I needed was the hat and I would be set!
On the way home I thought well…that should be my Halloween costume for next year. But then I realized no one would realize I was even dressed up!
I’ve always loved the story of the Wizard of Oz and the story of Wicked…and yes the Wicked Witch of the West has always been my favorite. I even dressed up as her for Halloween as a little girl..several times if I remember correctly. She is green and interesting…and she has flying monkeys!!!
But today’s new episode isn’t about the Wicked Witch of the West…it’s about Dorothy. Or rather, Dorothy’s dress and the history behind one of the world’s most recognizable fabrics….gingham.
