halloween prep  
Operation: Black Widow for Halloween arrived and fits okay, but the back only has one tiny velcro closure which seems likely to open and look tacky, so I need to fix that. But for a mass-produced costume it's pretty good. I will however wear impractical high-heeled boots because I don't have legs like ScarJo (or anything else, really, but boots and hair color are things I can do something about)

Kidlet is going as Mario (Super Mario Brothers Mario). I suggested he go as a superhero of some kind so we could match, but he already rejects anything his parents are into, so that was a no-go. So maybe I should alter mine into Princess Peach, Agent of SHIELD. LOL

Meanwhile there's been tv. Beauty and the Beast is terrible, and yet, I want to watch it again? I mean, really, I don't know why CW aired it, or at the least didn't make some changes from the original pilot, but at the same time, while I think it's bad, I kinda still have hope for it. I think part of it may be my thoughts of a BB and Person of Interest crossover, because they're both set in New York (though BB does a really terrible job of trying to look like NY), feature vigilantes, and lady detectives. (omg, I don't hate Kristen Kreuk, and I don't think Meryl Streep could've given decent line readings on some of that dialogue, but Carter would eat her for breakfast). But anyhoo I'll give it another chance and see what happens.

Ooh your costume sounds awesome! I hope there will be pics!

Ha, kids start rejecting adults' costume ideas SO early on, or so it seems with my goddaughters anyway. They're both so strong willed about it (six and three). I think the Mario costume sounds cute though, and you don't have to match. Though, Princess Peach, Agent of SHIELD would be pretty frakkin' amazing. LOL

I haven't seen the Beauty and the Beast series premiere but I saw the trailers for it, and it was painful. I was pretty boggled about it myself. Still, I recorded it, in case I wanted to check it out later based on fan reviews.

Kids are super stubborn about what they like! that is so true!

Yeah.. I think Kristen Kreuk is not bad-ass enough for New York...

she's a case where CW should have cast outside their 'stable', though I don't think a different actress would help all THAT much really. Just some really bad decision making all around..
