You should carry around a baby doll too since she ALWAYS has her baby with her (I swear!).  And since the guy who started the vpilf site (www.vpilf.com) is related to me, I second that idea.

As long as it's a loop around each ear (a circle of string for each side) and your ears don't bend forward, I think it'll work just fine!  Smiley

Not everyone will get the Kafka joke, but you could be an apple.  Specifically a rotting one.  But unless people know the Metamorphosis story they might not appreciate it.

Wet Seal online has green jelly slippers that reminded me exactly of Tinkerbell.  They are on sale right now for $3.50 and if you use the coupon code WSWL0908 you can get free shipping.  They have little perforations in them that would be perfect for attaching a giant white pom pom onto.  Then you could cover it in glitter sparkles.  http://www.wetseal.com/catalog/product.jsp?categoryId=178&subCategoryId=235&productId=7902  Hopefully your 7 year-old can make a size 6 women's shoe fit her!

My husband's going as The Joker - at least there's going to be more of them so you'll look original compared to that, right?  I'm all for originality (we were going to be a carnival sideshow - he The Bearded Lady), but it'd also be way less poignant if you were Sweeney Todd next year, you know?  So just make yours be the best Sweeney Todd costume and everyone else will pale in comparison!

Thread clear stretchy bracelet string through the holes and fashion yourself some button eyeglasses.  The stretchiness will make it stay taught to your ears, but it should be see-through enough to give the illusion of staying in place naturally.

Thrifterista, your pull string idea is great.  They do sell portable retractable laundry lines at Bed & Bath stores, for less than $5 usually.  But I think a wind-up doll would look great.  There's an amazing tutorial on Instructables about how to make a magnetic key (http://www.instructables.com/id/Magnetic-Key/) but if I were you I'd just make the key from cardboard and a bit of PVC, then spray paint it gold.  I would keep the length to less than a foot long to attach to your back without much awkwardness.  You can drill four small holes at the end of the pipe, thread sturdy wire through them, and rig it to fit you like a back pack.  Does that make sense?  I think a doll will look great for your face, too.  Be sure to paint on big fake eyelashes and cheeks.

Waldo costumes make for the best photos, so as long as you could secure a friend to take a distance photo of you in the Homecoming game crowd, I'd definitely vote for that.  I lend out my Waldo costume every year - it's always a big hit.  Recognizable, but still unique enough that you know everyone else isn't going to be Waldo too.
639  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Pebbles Bone Hair Barrette on: September 29, 2008 01:43:56 PM
That's great.  When I was Pebbles I used a rawhide dog bone and rigged it to my ponytail with elastics - I like yours a lot better!  Good idea for a Halloween clip too.  I hope you sell lots and lots.  What did you seal it with?  The shine makes it look very traditional costumey bone-like.

TrendyMegs, if you still haven't got any velvet rope yet, check out this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/VELOUR-6-ROYAL-BLUE-STANCHION-SECURITY-ROPE-WITH-ENDS_W0QQitemZ270280396498QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item270280396498&_trkparms=72%3A1209%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14  That's the best deal I can find.  It's a lot easier to look for "velour stanchion rope" than "velvet rope" when you're in a search engine, by the way!
