OK I love clowns and im a cheerleader coach so I decided to make a cheerleader clown costume. I named my clown Rahni Starr. Get it Rah Rah Rahni??  Grin

B! Angry

But worth it. Cause I can still wear it and go clownin around.  Tongue

Ok First I found some material I liked

Then I used one of the millionz of cheerleading catalogs I have lying around here to order a very basic cheer costume.

I dont have any "in the process" pictures sorry.
But this is how it turned out. I do have one of me in it before I made the bloomers and with no makeup on but I cant find it.

This is the costume and its elements laid out.

I lucked out with the shoes. Wal Mart 10$ Thank you Hannah Montana!
I added the star and pink shoelaces.

Ok clown makeup is evil. It takes FOREVER to get it on and get it right and if you mess up its hard to fix.

Heres a closeup
Sorry im a graphic artist too... I had to take the ugly background out. :-P

Last one
Rahni out and about on Halloween.
We went on a hayride, hung out with friends and ate a late dinner with my mom and sister.

I hope you like it.
I love it!! I put the whole thing on a few times before to make sure it was right and once after. I plan on using it again and again.

Anyone have a unicycle for sale??

Ok, normally clowns freak me right out, but you look adorable!
The bloomers are my fave part.  So cute!

Aww thank you!! I have a few people say "Im afraid of clowns" and I just say "OMG IM afraid of people who are afraid of clowns!!"

Hey does anyone know how to change the thumbnail that goes with this post? Id like it to be one of the photos of the whole costume instead of just the material.

Can I just say A.W.E.S.O.M.E! I totally love it, you look so great. You're like me, once I get started I just can stop and I go all out with a thousand details that no one could possibly take in all at once (your shoes match your hair bows!). All the more reason to keep looking at me in my excellent costume I say! Wondeful job.
I have to know how you got your face so perfectly white, that never happens when I use that stuff!

And to answer your question, I'm pretty sure the thumb will be the first picture in the post though you seem to have figured it out...
