The Paper Hoarder

Cara’s Bday

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):
