  • lol your poor thing!!!! Hubby wants you to dress as something sexy, a woman maybe some leather & lace? Dorothy looks like a young girl w/ the pigtails & way she acts, hubby doesn't wanna feel like a pedophile. Go for something more like you'd see a porn star wear. this'll get his motor running again!!! Give him some time to get that image out of his head though.

  • AWWW!!!! It wasn't you, I agree with first poster! Some men want their wife/so dressed in something sexy(sexy doesn't necessarily mean leather & lace, but anything that's lingerie and makes you feel sexy in it!!!), some men want the school girl look, some want the maid, some want the dominatrix. I would massage his ego and ask him what he had in mind, and lovingly apologize for misunderstanding because he wasn't specific enough for you to grasp a concept from. You could go to a porno store and get some sexy outfits and stripper shoes or if not comfortable with that go to ebay and look up lingerie or stripper outfits. My fave store on ebay for exotic stripper shoes(and decently priced too!) is my shoe addiction. Have fun and this will blow over!!!!

  • Sounds like your DH needs to be more specific on what he wants. Sounds like he went a little off the deep end though with that reaction.

  • Does he regularly lock himself in the basement with whiskey? That is a bit extreme, I would think.

  • Maybe he would have preferred you in a Spiderman costume. Just thinkin'....

  • Men are so silly. He should have given you a hint of what he wanted. Some men would have loved to do Dorothy! Now that you know he's not into girls try something else. I go through a new personnae each week. Some work for SO and some don't. Look around for something that you could use for a Xena Princess Warrior outfit. I have a bullwhip instead of the ring she had. I bought it on Ebay for about 2 dollars. I don't hit him with it, but it looks cool! I go to thrift stores and pick up outfits and make them into costumes that I like. I wish I could fit in your Dorothy costume. I have a fantastic pair of ruby platform slippers ($5.00 at the mall on clearance) but no costume. Today I was Santa's little helper. Woo Hoo! Santa really rewarded me too!

  • If he doesn't want a little girl, get a gray haired wig, stuff a moomoo and ask him if he wants his silver wings!!
