Answer: Poison Ivy | Guess My Halloween Costume!

The big reveal^.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out. :)

Harlie Walkup guessed correctly first... and quickly, too!

I did this last year in preparation for dressing up as Medusa... and it was so much fun (Who doesn't love a good guessing game?) that I decided to give it another go this Halloween.  As I've mentioned in one post, I will be masquerading as My Little Pony Rarity on Halloween night.  So forget about that costume.  ...I have something else up my sleeve for this coming weekend's festivities with friends.  Each day (starting today) I will post two clues until the big reveal on Saturday night. As soon as you think you've got me pinned, leave a comment with your guess.  I won't be publishing comments until the reveal.  Don't want to spoil it if some smarty pants guesses correctly right away! :P 

Since this is so last notice, I don't have any actual prize in store.  :(  ...But I'll be sure to give the winner and their blog a special, spooky shout-out! 

Okay.  So... on with the show!

Clue #1
She's a Seattle native.

 Clue #2
She studied advanced botanic
biochemistry in college.

 Clue #3
If you called her a tree-hugger,
she'd take it as a compliment.

Clue #4
    In her early years, she idolized Bettie Page.
She drew inspiration from Bettie's hair
and even took up her Southern drawl.

 Clue #5
    She smells dang good! Like seriously.
Her pheromones can control the minds of men.

Clue #6
Her best friend isn't just someone she jests
around with... they're partners in crime, too.

 Clue #7
Her first kiss kills. Her second kiss
is its antidote. (Just ask Bruce.)

Clue #8
    This villain is one of Batman's primary enemies.

Guesses, anyone?

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
