The best way to get a feel for a city is by moonlight. During the hustle of the day, most cities take on a similar hum with the activity of commerce. It is a din that drowns out all else. With the quiet of nightfall, you can feel the beating of each city’s unique heart. New Orleans, steeped in dark magical power, is one of my favorite cities (okay, and maybe it’s round-the-clock partying has something to do with that!).
What better place to be a Voodoo King than the city of New Orleans? Dressed By Lexi has long been a favorite store of some of the women I know. Honestly, I hadn’t been to the store lately so when a friend told me I HAD to check it out, I jumped at the chance to visit. This month, Dressed By Lexi has been putting Halloween costumes on sale for 55L every week! This week, I am wearing the Mesh Voodoo King costume. It consists of two main pieces and a bunch of goodies tossed in to sweeten the deal. The black trousers come in seven sizes and are tattered where the cuffs would be. The Voodoo King Vest comes in five sizes and, while also dark, is rich in color and pattern making it quite fetching. That wide range of sizes does a great job of taking care of any fit issues. The costume doesn’t end there though; it includes some fun goodies too! The Voodoo King Staff and the face paint mask comprise an extremely scary looking pair of accessories. Add to them the necklace, top hat, and sandals (for regular avy feet) and you get a lot for the money! I saved the best detail for last: Dressed By Lexi makes their costumes for couples! So, if you are looking to go out for a romantic date wearing matching Halloween costumes, they have you covered. In fact, they are so thoughtful, the outfits are transfer enabled!
Hurry over to Dressed By Lexi to pick up the Voodoo King today, because the 55L Thursdays Sale items change every week. Of course, that’s actually good news if you collect great costumes like I do. I, for one, have a date to go dancing with my beautiful editor Andi wearing last week’s sale costumes: Tarzan and Jane. I can think of no better way to celebrate the continuing of Fab Free than to celebrate with someone who has tirelessly given her time to make me seem smarter than I really am. Have fun everyone and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
