My list was simple...
1. Plain white dress
2. Brightly colored circles to become candy dots on the dress
3. Long blue wig
4. Flashy false eyelashes
Well, I was able to find a simple white slip, party favor mini frisbees to serve as dots, a short blue wig, and some glittery eyelashes. I soaked the frisbees in some hot water to peel off the labels, no problem. Then I lined them up in rows on my dress and glued them on with some tacky glue. I had bought some Liquid Stitch for adhering the dots, but I forgot that required the heat of an iron, which would be a no-go.
In a second set of running errands Saturday morning I found a better blue wig, and Dustin got the items for a Charlie Sheen costume - winning! Then in the midst of vacuuming and prepping for our Halloween gathering, Dustin moved my costume. The candy dot dress that had 24 candy dots hopefully drying on the dress, suddenly was left with only about 7 dots actually attached. Epic fail! Did I mention this was an hour and a half before our guests were coming?
I scrambled at the last second to put together a fabulous 80's costume instead. Black lace top, pink leopard miniskirt, black leg warmers, loads of pearl necklaces, super curly hair, and some flashy eye shadow to top it all off.
