So, I'm giving myself the title of the queen of the costume changes!  Not only did I have 3 costumes lined up this year for Halloween, but I managed to whip up 4 costumes within 3 hours of running around like cuh-raaaay-zee!

You may have seen my shark attack costume.  I managed to stick with that for about 1/2 of the day when I decided it was time for another costume.  Into my head popped an idea and it was off from there!

So here it is:  I did most of the creative thinking and gathering for both of these costumes, though the Karate Kid was waaay easier!  (explanations of the costume below pictures!)

Mr. Miyagi
Beard/Moustache:set which I trimmed and painted to be Miyagi color, Bald Head:  all bald caps at EVERY Halloween stores were sold out, so I got a swim cap and covered it with makeup, hair:  white faux fur cut to shape and colored with black hair spray, headband: t-shirt strip I cut and then drew (exact from movie) and colored on with Sharpie, makeup: just bronzer HEAVILY applied, Asian eyes: band-aided me eyes so they were slanted (hope nobody takes offense to that!), clothing: Miyagi style shirt from Goodwill and Thai fisherman pants from my housemate, props:  Bonsai tree which was actually a juniper bush I picked up from Walmart and chopsticks from my friend's kitchen

People didn't even recognize me!!!

Karate Kid & Johnny from Cobra Kai

Borrowed both karate outfits from a friend.  We got chamois mits and wrote "wax on" on one and "wax off" on the other for Daniel.  My friend who was Johnny was just a natural look-alike for Johnny! 

Fantastic reactions all night long!  We bought three bottles of sake and passed it to everyone while reenacting scenes from the movie all night long!
