Such a great idea! I love the merit badges. He was such a great character (I <3 that movie)

So fun! I totally can relate with the sequins -- my machine kept eating my costume last year. Nice work!

Thanks Smiley I'm really proud of it. I wish I had a good photo of the front, but the back is the most fun part so oh well!

I think I finally made a costume I love more than when I was Rainbow Brite. I definitely like it way more than last years dinosaur. I mean, how can you be sad when your butt glows!?

I made the wings, inspired by the Threadbanger video using pantyhose and coat hangers. The yellow glowing firefly butt is made of lots and lots of yellow tulle, some cheap yellow taffeta stuff, and an outer layer of a thicker yellow tulle that was glittery. I was glowing via some battery powered LED Christmas lights and 3 feet of electroluminescent wire. The EL wire was set to flash (I wish I had a video!) so the hem of the skirt really did blink like a firefly! The antennae is pipe cleaners, a headband, and foam balls that I covered in glitter.

My friends who threw the party are probably going to hate me forever, because I left glitter everywhere I went. Especially because my huge wings kept bumping into walls and doorways. Oops! Smiley

Thanks everyone Smiley It was the first time I ever sewed sleeves (and I didn't even use a pattern) and it was the first time I ever used eyelets (although you can't really see them in the pictures). Halloween is so fun!

That looks great! Your coworkers must have grown up in a box or something. I hope that instead of saying who you were you just said "meep meep" Smiley
