My friend Cara always has a themed birthday party every year. This year’s theme - dead celebrities.
Here she is dressed like I Love Lucy:
I had a hard time coming up with a costume idea. My DH hates dressing up but I thought of a pretty easy costume for hime - Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter. He wouldn’t need much more than khaki shorts and shirt. My sister suggested that I go as the crocodile but since the party’s theme was DEAD celebrities, I decided to go as the stingray that killed Steve Irwin.
But now I would need a stingray costume. I trolled the Internet looking for ideas, called my super crafty friend Lorrie and asked for help.
I ended up buying a $10 fleece blanket from Walmart and Lorrie helped me sew it into this:
It only took about 3 hours and her living/dining room was covered in blue fluff!
Here we are in costumed glory:
I plan on recycling this costume for Halloween. We put a lot of work into it!
Oh, and here’s bday card I made Cara (not stingray themed):
