Costume it up like Bettie Page

Ouija board fashion at Waterfront Park

In between tastings of lobster mac and cheese, deep fried macaroni balls, and beer samples from Booze Brothers, I had time to lounge, digest, and enjoy the atmosphere at the unlimited Mac + Cheese Fest at Waterfront Park.

Among the vibrant summer rompers and mac-and-cheese themed T-shirts, I spotted Miranda from a distance, grabbing a beer sample from another booth. Her witchy outfit seemed a little out of place in the 90-degree October sunshine, but it reminded me of the rapidly approaching Halloween season.

Miranda is a surrealist acrylic painter, born and raised in San Diego. When asked what inspired her outfit that day, she relayed, “Since it’s Halloween season, I was trying to be slightly spooky, so I put some dark stuff on. I was trying to go with a little bit of noir, since it’s that time of year, and I like that type of stuff.”

Dark nails complete her Halloween inspired look.

Her eerie-chic ensemble consisted of a mix of mainly black pieces, starting with the black cowboy hat she scored from the 99-cent store. It was complemented perfectly by her see-through lace kimono (Ross, $15) and strappy black bralette (on sale at Target, $15). What really drew me in, however, was her Ouija board wrap skirt, which she got online (she couldn’t remember where) for roughly $20. Her sandals were a purchase from a previous trip to Vegas. Asked what they cost, Miranda laughed, “I think I paid too much for them.”

I inquired about her daily outfit style. She answered she typically likes to “costume it up.”

When asked if she had any fashion icons, Miranda responded, “You know what? I like Bettie Page. So I actually like to dress, like, rockabilly a lot the time.”
