This year I was inspired to dress us alike.

Alberto is a good sport, and he has dressed up like a woman many, many times. Among my favorites - he was once Ugly Betty; we were a pair of tango dancing nuns; he dressed as me for a "Come As Your Favorite Woman" party. So when I asked him if he would be one of two Fridas this year he said sure.
I got the idea when I saw the idea for a little kids costume.

Of course we got a lot of laughs. Sad to say some people had to be told who we were (one squealed "Oh look it's Carmen Miranda"), and who Frida was. But most people got it and loved it as much as we did.
We went to a party in the neighborhood, and had a wonderful time. When we got home we took these pictures. We tried to pose like Frida, who seldom smiled. She was an intense beauty.

I know a lot of people back east missed Halloween this year, with so much more to deal with. If you are looking at this I hope our silly costumes made you smile. Things will get better.
