A themed What I Wore Wednesday post - - this is dedicated to all of you who might want to throw together a costume today.
For a church fall festival, last minute we thought we could be a family of Motorcycle Bikers - and it was easy to do!
--Just black shirts, black pants or jeans, and bandanas tied onto our heads.
--I found a leather jacket, youth size 10 for my son (first store I went to - awesome!) and a black jacket for myself.
--Borrowed some girls black boots from the neighbor girl.
--Drew facial hair and dark eyebrows on the boys. The girls sported big earrings and heavy makeup.
--Trevor even thought to draw a tattoo. He borrowed a real biker headwrap and chaps.
--I sported some tight faux leather pants that I found a few years ago at Walmart for $1 - at that price I knew they'd come in handy sometime. They were borderline risque for a church party, but I wore a long shirt to cover some of the tightness. And I guess I like to live on the edge.
If you want another idea for a quick last-minute costume, the Upside-Down Man is always a hit. I've even won a cash prize with this one!
