Alright, here is a long awaited Mary Poppins Halloween costume picture. Disclaimer: The shirt, skirt and umbrella I own. The hat (and all its pieces) and bow tie were made out of paper. Thanks YouTube for your folding how-to videos. And thanks creativity for kicking in and ensuring I didn’t spend $1 on this outfit.
The Chiclone was a huge disappointment, though I will say, I woke up freaking out that the window was going to bust in and a tsunami was going to form over the Lake.
But that’s not the kind of wind I’m talking about.
I’m talking about Winter Winds. By the one and only Mumford & Sons. I know I’ve written how much I love them, but last night, they FINALLY played this song in Chicago. This is the song I first heard from them and what made me totally fall for their music. It was their third show here since May (third time’s the charm!) and I went yet again in tow with an old musical buff named Dan who introduced me to the world of Ray LaMontagne and Joe Purdy. We literally had the time of our lives. And here’s some Winds for you all to enjoy. We went in costume, so once Dan sends me the photos, I’ll be sure to show you Dottie Hinson and a Boy Scout partying with the Sons.
