I was invited to a Halloween party with a theme: the letter P! I wanted to find a costume that had 3 characteristics: 1) Not expensive, 2) Not slutty, 3) Not long to craft. After a lot of thinking, I had the best idea (in my mind Tongue)... a Pop Tart!  Grin

I took a pillowcase for the Pop Tart itself, some white fleece for the icing and stitching floss for the sprinkles. In the end, the sprinkles took a long time because I wanted to have knots to look like round sprinkles, but it was worth it! At the last minute, I also made a little felt Pop Tart that I put on a headband.

Here is the costume!  Smiley

With my boyfriend, he was disguised as The Professional (with Jean Reno and Nathalie Portman, good old movie!)

Here is the back, my pillowcase was so tight, it really looked like a dress!

And a close up of the felt PopTart headband!

I'm really proud of my costume: simple and original, yay!  Cheesy

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Hahaha, that's awesome. It's definitely original. And I guessed that your bf was the Professional before I even read the caption, nicely done. Smiley
(Oh, and I have to say I love the body part garland you have in the background there!)

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Thanks! Sadly, a lot of people at the party hadn't seen the Professional, so they didn't recognise my boyfriend's costume... But everybody recognised the Pop-Tart!  Cheesy
