halloween ideas pt. 2

I've been invited to a Hotel California themed Halloween party this year where everyone has to go as a dead musician. Which has got me thinking a lot about dead musicians. I mean, even more than usual.

And even though there are a lot fewer options when it comes to portraying dead ladies (the men have so many good options: Liberace, Freddy Mercury, Kurt Cobain, Robert Johnson) I've been thinking about going as Karen Carpenter. The garb is quintessentially 70's and thus easy to find. I think I could pretty much use what I have in my closet, but I may need a 'Lead Sister' t-shirt.

Other options:

Mama Cass (prop sandwich needed?)
Janis Joplin
Amy Winehouse
Patsy Cline
Left Eye
Whitney Houston
Tammy Wynette

Any I'm missing??


  1. oh! I love Karen Carpenter! I say go with her :) (that's one of my favorite Christmas CDs, ha ha)
    You could go as a guy too ;)

  2. I think you should go as Amy Winehouse. Think how much fun the makeup would be! Aunt Babs
