I was at a loss of what I should be for Halloween this year. I always come up with some really good ideas through out the year, but then October sneaks up on me and I have like, 3 days to cobble something together. Talk about procrastination. After juggling some ideas around in my head, I decided that I should be a unicorn. I love bright color, glitter, and I'm always looking for a good excuse to wear that fabulous blue wig.
I made my costume by purchasing an icicle Christmas ornament from JoAnn's and using gaffer tape to attach it to a headband. I made the ears out of felt and glued them to wire so that they would stand up nice and pretty. For the clothes, I wanted to go as BRIGHT as possible but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I went to a few thrift stores and they didn't have anything that spoke to me. Instead I went to Citi Trends next to the bad Kroger on Gallatin Rd. This place was a warehouse of really cheap, poorly made clothes- perfect for Halloween. I got the rainbow leggings, hot pink shoes and yellow top there for like, $9. The purple shirt is actually my winter running gear. I love re-purposing and spending less money! Oh, and clearly the tail was just some yarn.
***Thank you for your kind words and support yesterday. It really means a lot. My parents are safe which is most important. Things are ruined, but they are just things and can be replaced. I have to keep reminding myself of that.****
