Hey guys, this is my first post!
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!
