Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3716
gloze, oubliette, bedizen, reconnoiter

 

“I think you should have taken some time to reconnoiter before going out in public bedizened like His Royal Highness in drag, with that scarlet lipstick and your sequined satin gown and high heels, and if you try to gloze your actions by saying you were on your way to a costume party, then perhaps I should bring in all your bedizened compatriots to join you in the oubliette!”, shouted Sheriff John Law, as he dragged Sir Richard Percy off to prison.
