This year for Halloween, I decided I wanted to do some sort of total transformation.
In previous years, I found myself falling back on my usual Pippi Longstocking costume-perpetuated by my huge closet full of red striped clothing. I just had to put on my usual clothes, and run a coathanger through my pigtail braids.

This year, however, for the first time I found myself with hair too short to pull this trick off.

A few months back I had bought this red wig, and at the time I immediately thought of Velma Dinkley, from Scooby Doo.
Coming through my closet I happened upon the wig & immediately knew what I was going to be.

Special thanks to Melinda and Tim for helping me locate an Orange turtleneck on short notice!
