Have you ever seen a three-eyed purple sparkly alien? No? Well, here’s your chance. The school Halloween Party happens this week, just before they break up for mid-term. The Halloween Party is the highlight of the girl’s school year. The only talk at the moment is of outlandish costumes, scary makeup, and spooky accessories.
This is the first year that I think I have everything under control. Famous last words, right?!
DD1 decided ages ago what she would wear to the Halloween Party. It’s a surprise. If I told you I would have to kill you, so you won’t be getting a preview just yet. But she has her costume sorted and ready to go.
DD2 however is going to be an alien. A three-eyed purple sparkly alien. She decided on the three-eyed sparkly alien bit. I chose the purple because we have purple sparkly clothes that suit the occasion. (Yes, I was thinking ahead!) I bought purple-ish facepaint last month, so all we had to sort were the three eyes for her little alien head.
After a bit of research on Google, we came up with the idea of using craft balls, pipe cleaners and a hairband.
So we now have the eyes sorted. Ok, maybe a bit amateur looking, but we prefer the homemade variety of costume in our house.
Do you like the purple fluffy eyelashes? This is a girl alien, obviously.
The complete finished alien will be featured in my next post. I can’t give you too much of a preview right now, you never know who might be watching….. mwah ha ha ha!!!!
