The most difficult part of this whole project was keeping track of which side of the costume I was working on, as the colors keep switching back and forth.
The crown started out as a cardboard cone from Michaels; she cut it down and painted it, and it is held in place with a headband.
If she gets tired of holding on to the flamingo, here's how she can carry it:
Down to the wireI've still got a few little details to attend to for the costumes, but it's a short list... just six things. However, one of those things ended up consuming the entire day as I had to rip the thing apart about six times because I just kept getting the orientation wrong. But the end product is worth it, and I'll take pictures tomorrow.
Our "dress rehearsal" will be tomorrow morning, and then we head to Baltimore to pick up our badges (it has to be done in person). Then we'll head back home, get a good night's rest, and be up at some inhumane hour Friday to get into our costumes and head for the convention!
