... but I like it!
This year for Halloween, we had a Rock n' Roll theme at work. As you may recall from last year, I like to wear my skates to work on Halloween (cause, um, it's SUPER FUN to skate around work all day!)
Last year, I dressed as an angel, wore my skates, and went as a "Holy Roller" (pics of my wings and halo waaaay down in this post). The year before that, I was Hell on Wheels (no pics!) Before that, I was my Mini (craftster link to that one here).
This year, I made a bunch of fake stones, stuck them to myself, strapped on my skates and went as... The Rolling Stones! Hee hee.
Here's the costume (sans skates... sadly, my dressform does not have feet):
I made the stones using crumpled up newspaper covered in Rigid Wrap (which is hilarious, because of its circa 1962 product packaging, and also messy to use -- a real bonus in a craft supply!) And then I painted it with a fake-stone paint. They really came out great (if I do say so myself).
Perhaps my favorite part of this costume was taking off the stones and making a fun diorama:
Hee hee! Off-roading Mini! Yeah!
All right. Time to start thinking of next year's wheeled Halloween costume...
