Another great aspect of the Thriller in Schiller? A best costume contest .
Kelsey , Emily , and I got together last night to brainstorm and craft our costumes. There was talk of making them out of snuggies so I came dressed and ready for some heavy costume making.
We realized pretty quickly that running in snuggies was not going to be an option . Plus, Kelsey had lost hers (boo!). Back to the drawing board!
After finally deciding on our costumes we headed to CVS to pick up our supplies. We bought poster board, knee high nylons, duct tape, foil, and two sided tape. We also used Trader Joe’s bags. Random right?
When we got back to Kelsey’s we enjoyed dinner while starting on our costumes I should have known better than to mix crafting with food, every time I took a bite I’d start to laugh at the ridiculousness of what we were doing. It made eating really difficult.
In case you’re wondering, Kelsey made us a kale salad and a quinoa dish with brussels sprouts and leeks. Fancy!
Of course we wore the appropriate dining + crafting attire.
We soon realized that we weren’t particularly crafty and that our costumes were more difficult to make than previously thought- oh well! At least we had fun making everything.
Emily was convinced that the only way to stretch the nylons was to do this.
I about died from laughing!
I had so much fun with these girls and I honestly can’t remember the last time I’ve laughed so hard.
Despite our many laughing fits and struggles (double sided tape does not always make things easier!), we did eventually finish our costumes and will be proudly wearing them at the Thriller in Schiller!
Have you ever run a costume race? What do you think we’re dressing up as?
