how smart was this victorian gentleman?! he wears his bacon costume with such dignity. universal fact: just like cheese and garlic, bacon is one of the foods that make everything taste better. i bet the judges at the fancy dress ball agreed. they sure had good taste, these victorians.
i won a prize for the best halloween costume once. it was 2002, i was somewhere in new hampshire, wearing a purple sweater and 30 purple balloons pinned to it. i went as a bunch of grapes and couldn’t sit down all night. so worth it!
