Tweet I did this last year when my camera got stolen and I had nothing to share, and I wanted to bring it back. [I don't know why, though... It's a lot of work!]
I scoured through as many of your pictures as I could and picked my favorite costumes that I could see.
But, before I get to that, I must show off my costume that I am oh-so-proud of.
If you've been missing on Cloud 9, I was the Twitter Bird. I had to buy white feathers, dye all of them individually with blue and turquoise dye, let them dry, then glue them on to an XL t-shirt. I made the wings out of fabric and glued them to the top of my shoulder. Add some leggings, socks, a hair clip, a sign, and yellow face paint on my lips, and it was complete!
BUT, at 5:30 Saturday night I realized I didn't have enough feathers, so I had to go buy/dye/dry/glue some more.
Somehow, with a little magical power, it all came together wonderfully:
The best part: It stayed together enough for me to wear the next day for Preston Leatherman's music video shoot! The worst thing to happen: Feathers getting wet from my drinks.
Now that I've done my fair share of bragging about my creative, one of a kind costume that I'm in love with [even though people constantly called me Big Bird... RUDE], I shall show off all of you, my Facebook friends.
If you weren't included and should have been, LET ME KNOW! I probably missed a lot of you, and I'll totally show you off, too!
I love creativity which makes me love Halloween. Thanks to the world for making it such a fun holiday.
Where did you find the yellow lip stick, socks, flops and blue leggins??
I loveee this idea and would lovee to do it!
The lips are just yellow face paint from any Halloween store! flops are from Old Navy, socks are white but I dyed them yellow, and blue leggings I got by luck at Wet Seal, but you can find them anywhere now... Amazon!
how did you glue down the feathers in such a way that kept them down but kept them kinda loose at the same time? btw, this costume is amazing!
