Happy New Year!!!
Hey Everyone! Wow, I can't believe it's already New Year's Eve. These past couple of days have been bittersweet because 2013 was so good to me, but I'm super excited to see what 2014 has in store! Being a performer isn't the easiest thing in the world and I feel so lucky that I was able to do what I love and work with fun, fabulous people along the way. And doing this blog has brought me so much joy on top of all of that! Here are a few highlights from this past year:
That last one didn't happen, it was just in my dreams of course, but hey, maybe in 2014 I'll make it a reality! Aziz, if you're reading this: call me! Hahahahaha! Thank you so much to all of you who have stopped by to take a look at a day in the life of Apples The Mule. I appreciate the support so very much and I promise ya I'll keep it coming in 2014! Happy New Year!!!
Halloween Wrap Up
Happy Friday everyone! As promised, here's a photo of me at the Greenwich Village Halloween parade last night:
Yep, I was the wrecking ball from Miley Cyrus's infamous video. This year I had decided I wanted to do something current and edgy and Miley Cyrus definitely fit the bill. I also have a special relationship with wrecking balls, you can see that post by clicking the following link and scrolling down: http://www.applesthemule.com/1/category/wrecking%20ball/1.html
I wanted to make sure not to be too obvious (or slutty) so I chose not to be Miley herself but to be that poor wrecking ball she sits on instead. And I put her on there in doll form just to make sure everyone didn't just think I was a bowling ball - hahahaha! I had a fantastic time watching the parade and walking around the village. People kept stopping me to take pictures, I felt like a celeb! And speaking of celebs - hey Miley, call me, maybe we can collaborate on something! I'm down as long as there's no spanking involved! Hope everyone had a fab night too and have a great weekend!
Happy Halloween Everyone! It's finally here and I'm so excited! First things first, I have to give a birthday shout out to my friend Amanda in Los Angeles - Happy Birthday girl, hope you're having a great day! I wish my birthday was on Halloween, how fab would that be? I'm going to the big Greenwich Village Parade tonight, which is my favorite thing to do in New York on Halloween. It's nuts down there on a regular night so you can imagine what Halloween is like! I'll give a full recap tomorrow, but for now here's one more Throwback Thursday Halloween-style post:
This photo is from a couple years ago, the Halloween after the first season of Walking Dead aired. I'm a huge fan of the show (if any casting directors are reading this I'm available to come down to Atlanta and play the role of a mule zombie, hint, hint - hahahaha!) so I decided to be a zombie, or walker as they call them. Don't I look scary? I terrified lots of people that night, so I'd consider it a success. Anyway, I gotta go get my stuff ready for the big night, can't wait to show you all what I wore this year! Have a spooky evening everyone!
In continuing with my anticipation of Halloween, here's another blast from the past Halloween costume. Can you guess who I was?
I was Pippi Longstocking of course! Or to call her by her full name: Pillilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking. Whew, that was a mouthful and a half! think I was 10 or 11 at the time of this photo and Pippi was a hero of mine at that age. I always wished she was a real person because we had the same slightly naughty sense of adventure and I knew we'd have the BEST time together! So how about you guys? Who were your childhood heroes who you wish you could meet? I'd love to hear all about it. Have a great weekend!
Hey Y'all, I know you were waiting all week and it's finally here:
In keeping with yesterday's Halloween theme I'm going to post a throwback Halloween picture, and this one is going waaaaay back:
Do you get it? I'm a baby carrot!!! Hahahhaha! And I was just a baby back then so I can't take responsibility for the clever costume, it was my Mom's idea so thanks Mom! Have a great weekend everyone, and remember the advice I gave in my last post: stay away from the slutty costumes!
Hey Guys! It's that time of year again, and by that I mean it's time to choose your Halloween costume! Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, the combination of costumes and candy just can't be beat! But I gotta bring something up here that I am NOT a fan of: the trend of "ladies" wearing inappropriately sexy costumes. I'm not a prude, I don't mind sexy costumes in general, I'm talking about the kind of sexy costumes that make no sense whatsoever.
Sexy Ketchup? Really people? That's fine if you wanna be a condiment as a costume, I encourage you to be whatever condiment you want - mustard, relish, whatever! But if you do it, do it right & get a costume that's big enough. I don't remember ever seeing a pair of legs sticking out of the bottom of a ketchup bottle!
This one doesn't need much explanation, it's just gross. Babies are not sexy for crying out loud - they're babies!
Sexy Elmo - why?! Elmo is one of my favorite creatures of all time. I love Elmo! He is sweet, adorable, funny and charming, but sexy he is not, and I'm sure he doesn't appreciate being portrayed in this way. This goes for all the rest of the Sesame Street gang too, by the way. There's no need for a sexy Big Bird or a Sexy Cookie Monster or a sexy Oscar the Grouch costume (all of which exist by the way) - it's just wrong!
Talk about wrong: a sexy Amelia Earhart costume. I mean jeez, this woman achieved so much and now is being disrespected posthumously with this ridiculous portrayal! What's next? Sexy Susan B. Anthony? Sexy Harriet Tubman? Sexy Eleanor Roosevelt? Where does it end people?!
Anyway, I hope this post brings awareness to this important issue. And ladies, if you're out costume shopping and find yourself reaching for something inappropriately sexy, just remember: This is supposed to be a kid's holiday you pervert! Put some clothes on! Hahahaha!
