I did have a great time! I got see flamingly gay choir men doing the Thriller dance on stage in perfect formation and a 7ft tall drag queen dressed as Elvira. A couple people came and talked to me and I got a lot of smiles.
There were two ladies from choir there -- two of the only ones near my age. I'd never really talked to them before last night, but we had a great time! I guess they are dating. We stayed at the party for the costume judging and then went out to a diner and chatted for a long time. Then I got to go meet their new kitten. The one girl lives literally like 200ft from me, so I think she and I might end up hanging out in the future. Yay!
Not really a talent I can honestly say I'm interested in possessing, but I'll take it.
It's funny about the makeup, though. I was telling people all night how applying liquid eyeliner is apparently just like riding a bike; it comes right back to you! And I'll admit it looked really good. I came home and didn't want to take it off.
I feel like a little kid trying to get colouring right when I first go to put on makeup, and then I sort of remember what do do and manage to get things inside the lines. I put it on only a couple of times a year these days, but once upon a time I did my eyes daily (never really was a foundation/powder girl, though). I feel a little like I'm in drag when I do it now, but for stuff like weddings, it seems like the thing to do.
It's funny, because in other ways I do the feminine thing just fine--I like fun dresses, I have a fondness for interesting design and unusual jewellery, and I like shoes (but only wear flats). But makeup is something I've largely abandoned.
