I love making Halloween costumes!  After past years as Big Bunny (www.big-bunny.com), a Jack-in-the-Box, a Lego, and various other things, I was undecided as to what to be this year.  I'd been trying to decide between a few ideas I'd drawn up, but just couldn't come up with "THE ONE". 


Then....


PERFECTION!  I WILL BE A POP TART!


But what kind?  Research was necessary.


After many snacks and much deliberation, I decided to go with an edited version of the Frosted Strawberry Pop Tart. 



And so assembly began.


Ingredients:
-One (1) Eggcrate Bed Topper
-One half (.5) Yards Pink felt
-A Tiny Bit (.14) Pink Fleece
-One (1) Box Neon Drinking Straws
-One (1) Ass-ton of Hot Glue
-Two (2) Thigh-High Pink Stockings  (Seeeexxxy Pop Tart)
-Two (2) Blue Chucks
-Magic

And finally... what you've all been waiting for.  You entire lives have been building to this moment... this climax... this PEAK OF EXISTENCE...

THIS EPIC BATTLE...

TOASTER VS. POP TART

BEGIN!





WIN!  POP TART WIIIIINNNNSSSSS!!!

Thanks!  I was shocked at what a big hit it was at the party!  I didn't know anyone besides the person throwing the party when we got there, but by the time I left, I knew almost everyone's name!  It was crazy!  And so cozy and warm and squiiishyyy.

Thanks!  I know that boyfriend will be happy to hear that!  The pop tart kind of stole the show and I think he felt a little slighted!  He made the Christmas Tree costume all by himself!!

It's times like these that I wish I could hear some sort of dramatic midi of fighting music (Mortal Kombat, perhaps?) playing in the background while I read this. 

You are awesome.  (And clearly, toasters are not.)
