Day 15: Boo! It’s sexy baby time…

Hey there adoring fans (Allison Hammer and Danny Kelly)!

So, as I mentioned on Day 4, for Halloween this year (and maybe our last),I planned to dress up as the Coppertone Baby.  You know, this adorable little girl…

Now, some people believe that this little girl was modeled after a very young Jodi Foster, but after some research (a solid 47 seconds worth on Wikipedia), I found out that the picture was actually modeled after a little girl named Cheri, and the artist was her mother Joyce Ballantyne Brand, who later went on to become a famous pinup artist (drew pinup girls, wasn’t an actual pinup girl).   At the age of 86, Joyce gave this advice for drawing pinup girls in an interview, “But you don’t do dirty. You want the girl to look a little like your sister, or maybe your girlfriend, or just the girl next door. She’s a nice girl, she’s innocent, but maybe she got caught in an awkward situation that’s a little sexy.”   Well Joyce, I’m pretty sure that’s what they teach you on the first day of Date Rape 101.   Anywho, Jodi Foster eventually did make her film debut as the Coppertone Baby for a commercial in 1965.

Now…back to what’s really important…me!  I’ve been wanting to dress up as the Coppertone Baby for years.  I mean, I already kinda look like her with this adorable bulbous head of mine.  Plus I wanted to have a kind of creative AND sexy costume.  You know?  So that people would say , “Wow! What a super creative costume….yet really sexy at the same time!  I totally want to take that woman/baby out for a lobster dinner!”    So, on Day 4 of this blog, I put my plan into action, and 10 days later, October 31st I was ready to…

DRESS UP AS THE COPPERTONE BABY FOR HALLOWEEN!

I bought an adorable stuffed dog off of Amazon.com…

… picked out the perfect pair of blue underwear…

…realized how fat I’d gotten from spending 5 days on the couch eating non-perishables because of stupid hurricane Sandy…

… thought of a brilliant idea…

…Spanks!…

…and then went on to paint the town *red, in the sexiest, most creative Halloween costume ever!

*By painting the town red, I meant walking 2 steps out the door and then realized that I had nowhere to go because the city had just been devastated by the hurricane and there was nothing to do but walk down the block and go trick or treating and I had a strong suspicion that I would upset the children and then their parents would shout “haven’t they been through enough?!” So I stayed home and watched TV instead.

I’d like to take the rest of this post to thank my roommate, John Scacchetti, for drawing the ass-crack on my spanks with a sharpie marker.  He really knows the true meaning of friendship.
