  One Response to “Fabulous Cool Neon Wire Suit”

  1. […] The tornadoes were represented by lime green Cool Neon Electroluminescent Wire wrapped around her legs, and held up (more or less) by elastic bands. The wind was shown two ways: she carried a leaf blower painted black she had blowing when she entered the room; and also she sewed cocktail umbrellas and little cars all over her petticoat, as a lot of her deck umbrellas went flying off during the storm. For some extra drama, she sewed a “dog collar” of flashing colored lights. This took a few weeks of planning, researching, and sewing, but it was worth it: it was the first time she had seen so many of her friends actually speechless! And she won First Prize for Best Costume. The only problem is: How is she going to top this next year? Then we have the talented Mikaela Holmes who makes fabulous costumes. You  can read more about her process and different looks in our prior post HERE. And do you remember this fabulous costume? You can read more about it HERE. […]
