Our dream Halloween would be a year when more women were concerned with choosing costumes that would make people laugh rather than using the non-holiday as an excuse to wear bras out the house with nothing over the top. Vena Cava designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai may just share that dream:

“My favorite costume was the year I went as a bodega,” says Lisa Mayock. “This year? Still working it out, but I think Jeff Halmos and I are going to be Mario and Luigi from Super Mario Bros.” Her design other half, Sophie Buhai, says, “One year I was ‘pregnant,’ and I just drank and smoked with a very real-looking stomach. It was very offensive and I don’t know if people really thought I was in costume. But I thought it was funny! This year I want to be Laurie Anderson and am looking for a good white suit and electric violin.”


Ha, going as "pregnant" is a great way to freak out friends, boyfriends, ex-boyfriends. Clever!
