unicorn costume

I know I said I was going to turn this into a regular blog, but I really have nothing to post. I love Halloween but couldn't come up with anything creative this year. My friend suggested we go as unicorns. Too bad all the costumes we researched online involved 1) unitards or 2) babies. After an unsuccessful trip to a discount dance store, we decided just to wear regular clothes and make accessories. We made horns, ears, hooves and tails. Here's the result:

My friend's fauxhawk looked great. I was thinking more of a curly mane with ribbons. I bought some hair glitter and rhinestones to bling out my face and hair. I couldn't find the rhinestones I was supposed to go out! AND my glitter hairspray didn't work. Ugh.

I didn't do much makeup-wise. I had some pretty white ribbon that had a pinkish purple sheen to them, so I went off that. Here's a pic for now and I'll do a how-to soon.

  1. Hi, just curious. How did you make your horn and tail? I was looking up unicorns for Halloween this year and your blog came up. I hope you don't mind me asking. Thanks!

  2. Hi Sophia!

    I couldn't see what your email address is, so I hope this is the right place to post the answer!

    As for the tail, I gathered a bunch of tulle (2 yards or so) and ribbon into a big bundle. Then I wrapped wrapped one end of the tulle with wide pieces of pipe cleaner (found at Michael's craft store). I wrapped about a 2 1/2 inch long stump and safety pinned it onto my skirt.

    If you have anymore questions, I can email you!
