How to use dress up in a sentence?

  1. Courtney Weinblatt:

    ( The holidays are) such a rare opportunity to dress up these days.

  2. Shinzo Abe:

    To be honest, when [Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee head Yoshiro] Mori first came to me with the idea [of appearing at the closing ceremony dressed as Super Mario], I didn’t like it [laughs], ‘Is it really OK for a prime minister to dress up like Mario?’ I asked. As much as possible, I wanted to avoid any politicizing of the Olympics, and it’s a 20-hour flight to Rio.

  3. Purvi Raniga:

    Just dress up and start celebrating life. Simple!

  4. Ryan Pack:

    God: He can make you say things, he can make you go places, (For example) the secretary of state, he can make you do things like write a book or dress up as Mario for Halloween, he can hit Jesus statues with lightening, he can make you type words over the internet, he can make you pick your nose without you even knowing he's making you do it, he has control over all your behaviors without you even knowing it. So I ask myself if God has so much power, if God is so intelligent, if he is so connected to us, than why is there so much evil in the world and why doesn't he stop it? The only thing I can think of is that he is pure evil and doesn't want to stop it.

  5. Circe Henestrosa:

    We see Frida as the person, Frida the artist but also the woman, i met Frida personally for the first time when I went through her archive, and I found a woman who loved perfume, who loved to dress up, who didn't let her disabilities define her but she defined who she was in her own terms.
