ahhhhh!!! those are the coolest things i have ever seen in my life!!! i am a complete rainbow fanatic and i am SUPER jealous of your thrift store rainbow finds! ahhhhhh........you really have no idea how happy it made me when i saw those arm warmers!
sorry, i just get really excited when i see rainbow things...so maybe when halloween is over you might want to give them to me?? hehe

Hehehe I LOOOVE rainbow stuff too, and it's hard to find cute rainbow stuff sometimes.  I had to go to a thrift store out of town to find rainbow stuff, mine didn't have any  Cry  hehe.

Well, I think I may sell this stuff on ebay after halloween, so be sure to look for it  Wink

Hey guys, this is my first post! Tongue  I wanted to be a sort of rainbow brite inspired fairy for Halloween, and so far I have the arm warmers and the skirt finished. 

The skirt was a blue cotton (I think cheerleader) skirt with built-in shorts I got at the thrift store.  I took out the original ties and put in rainbow star ribbon, took the ruffles off a curtain(?) I found at the thrift store and added them to the bottom, then tried to cover up bad-colored thread by fabric-glueing the star ribbon above the ruffles (which turned out not so professional, but I don't mind). 






The arm warmers were a short, fat rainbow shirt from the thrift store that had lost most of its stretch.  I cut it, added grommet tape, laced the same star ribbon through the grommets, and added white lace to the ends. 





For the rest of my costume, I have a blue tank top (not sure what to do to it), I need to make the wings, I bought thigh high rainbow stockings, a wig, and red sneakers to decorate.  Also I am making red suspenders.  I will post a pic when the thing is finished!




Comment on whatever you like! Kiss

It's a punk thing leaking into popular (or more popular) culture.

When did it come about?  Because I was deep into the punk culture all through high school (1997-2001)  and never saw it until about a year ago.

OK THAT IS JUST WRONG

I totally had that song in my head right before I looked at this post, how freaky is that?!??  (it's because I watched anger management last night)

CARZY!!!

Ok, so I feel super stupid and out of it, but I now need to admit that I have been done with high school for way too long and now I am totally out of touch with the kids these days and their trends.  What is with the bang bang and the guns on everything?  What does it stand for?

Hmmm, could you do a tutorial or supply a pattern for the kitty hat?  I love it!  I have one store bought, but I'd love to make my own.

I did that exact same thing in high school, only I did it to my rainbow tube top because my ultra-conservative father found it in my room and demanded to know why I had it, so I told him I bought it to make it into a purse, so he sat there and watched me do it.  Hahaha, thanks for bringing back the silly memories of things I used to do to get out of trouble.
