For starters, I don’t usually go out on New Year’s Eve. I’m not really a night owl, I usually head to bed around 15 minutes after the ball drops. There have been years I went to sleep before midnight. I can’t see paying super expensive prices going out just because a digit is flipping on the calendar. More often the extent of “going out” means going to pick up Chinese food to bring home.
Last year I dressed up at home, complete with wig and makeup. I had a friend who was in the transformation business and she had to move away. As she was selling her inventory, I found a dress that I wore 10 years earlier in a show she put on. It was black with sparkles throughout and very slinky. I included it in what I took. So New Year’s Eve was an appropriate time to wear it. I have a photo of it in my private gallery.
But this year, New Year’s Eve falls on a Friday night with New Year’s Day on a Saturday. So I’m going to be out at Sabbath services until 10 PM on Friday, and it doesn’t make sense to start to put on makeup for just a few hours of staying home. And I can’t sleep too late on Saturday for the Sabbath morning services. So I may change into something late Friday night, but it’s not likely to be with makeup and wig.
