Here are some ideas for which I will begin to collect old clothes and accessories. I'd love to hear from you about other suggestions.
tacky bridesmaid (80's bridesmaid)
potted plant -I'm thinking of a hula hoop at waist height and mid calf height, a fabric tube creation will be the flower pot. The hoop pot would be held up by ropes over my shoulders and the ropes could be covered in green leaves. If I wear green on top and a big flower hat I would be a potted plant. Ambitious.
mother earth-a matronly outfit and attach birds, plants and other animals randomly all over
a teenager-dress in all black and wear a toque, carry a skateboard
a gypsy just because I would love the clothes required. I would want to get a really good wig of long dark hair.
a book worm-how would I make myself look like a worm?
I'm running out of ideas already.....I kind of like corpse bride, but I don't like wearing lots of gunk on my face all day
a box of tissue-decorated cardboard box and white paper shaped like a pulled out tissue -I like a costume that can be removed easily and my regular looking self is all ready to go.
I saw a girl with a fantastically simple costume. Using one of those clear umbrellas that curve down around the shoulders and decorating it with translucent streamers she was a jellyfish. She wore pale blue clothing but it was a very removable costume which, again, I really like.
