For whatever insane reason (since half the population I'm around doesn't remember the 80's), I decided to go as Rainbow Brite this year.
For the first time in yonks, this required actual sewing for a costume. Which is to say I found a thrift store dress and sewed on the requisite decorations.
I was going to knit the whole dress, but I started this about two months before and it took me over a month to work out how to knit the arms, so there you go. On the other hand, it made it easier to do the legwarmers/boot tops. I got a pair of Converse and painted them up a bit.
No, I didn't really get a better picture until the dead last minute of Halloween, why do you ask? Also, I thought I WAS smiling :P
