I am a Christmas Tree
This is just to show off one of my favourite costumes I've ever made.
Last year Xmas time I was desperate for a little extra cash, and lo and behold they had a christmas costume contest, which I stayed up all night for three nights working on.
I used cardboard boxes that had delivered some tables, battery powered LED's a and poked them through the cardboard for that authentic xmas tree feel, and made present shoes out of shoe boxes that said "to yoda love mom"
Cut out star as a headdress, and I had my ipod hooked up to some portable speakers spewing cheesy christmas tunes for added effect.
SO much fun and laughter came from this costume and instead of getting a real christmas tree that year, we just propped this bad boy up in our living room.
Oh AND I won!! (duh, I mean if someone else had I woulda cried and then beat them up IN my costume.)
