"Masquerade! Paper faces on parade
Masquerade! Hide your face so the world will never find you
Masquerade! Every face a different shade
Masquerade! Look around there's another mask behind you
Flash of mauve, splash of puce
Fool and king, ghoul and goose
Green and black, queen and priest
Trace of rogue, face of beast
Take your turn, take a ride
On the merry-go round in an inhuman race
Eye of gold, thigh of blue
True is false, who is who?
Curl of lip, swirl of gown
Ace of hearts, face of clown
Faces! Drink it up, drink it up
'Till you've drowned in the light
In the sound
But who can name the face?
Masquerade! Grinning yellows, spinning reds
Masquerade! Take your fill, let the spectacle astound you
Masquerade! Burning glances, turning heads
Masquerade! Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you
Masquerade! Seething shadows, breathing lies
Masquerade! You can fool any friend who ever knew you
Masquerade! Leering satyrs, peering eyes
Masquerade! Run and hide, but a face will still pursue you"
-Masquerade, Phantom of the Opera
John and I went to a Halloween party on Friday night. If you read my post on Thursday, you saw how I created the masks that we wore. I really love how they turned out. It was a simple and creative costume. We just threw on some classy black clothing (and some jackets, because it was pretty chilly here in Florida!), added the masks, and we were good to go. It is a goal of ours to attend a real masquerade ball someday, but until that happens this Halloween costume has given us a little fix.
Did you do any Halloween celebrating this weekend?
