Happy Halloween, everyone! Hopefully you're not quite in your sugar coma just yet...
Josh and I dressed up for the first time as a couple this year! We went to Ferndale to visit one of my friends and his new fiance, and we went out to 80's night at a bar. For months I was stumped when it came to thinking of a fun costume for Josh and me. I knew it couldn't be too outrageous, or else Josh would never go for it. I also wanted to make it myself in an effort to save some money. About a week ago I saw Laura's post on MeSooLaLa, and I knew what we were going to be. Well... besides great big copy cats, we were going to be contestants from Double Dare!! After about $30 in supplies, I had everything we needed: two blue t-shirts, iron on transfer fabric, neon green fabric paint (slime), plastic goggles, and elbow pads.
Here's what I did:
|I found the logo online, resized it, and printed it on to the iron-on fabric|
|I cut everything out... which was a HUGE pain...|
|...it was kind of hard to get the small spots without making the ink rub off for some reason|
|I peeled off the backing and ironed away! And yes, our iron is an antique... but it works REALLY well!|
|Some of the logo needed a lot of attention before it would stick. It was a little frustrating...|
|Then I randomly applied the fabric paint to the goggles for a "slimy" look. I was going to slime our shirts, too, but opted not to as I ran out of time and the paint was taking a lot longer to dry than I expected.|
|With the addition of a few plastic orange flags (made from a cheap tablecloth), we had our costumes!|
|Team Blue for the WIN!|
