It's that time of year again!! I thought I would re post this in case you guys are looking for a last minute costume idea!

We had Scott Clifton's 30th birthday party thrown by his beautiful wife Nikki last night. We have been so busy that we had no time to get a costume! At the last minute, We decided to be Vivian & Edward from one of my favorite movies, Pretty Woman (and by last minute I mean at 2 pm when the party was at 830) We ran out to get the essentials (wig, hair color, accessories etc) I already had the thigh high boots from when I used to take S Factor classes with Sheila Kelley. Darin obviously had the suit and tie and just needed to accessorize. The accessories were easy to find, the problem was finding the famous outfit Julia Roberts wore in the film. You can order it online, but clearly that wasn't an option. So we made it ourselves!!!

Here is what you need..

VIVIAN:

Thigh High Boots

Wig

Necklaces

Bracelets

A plain white t-shirt

A plain white tank

Red blazer

Spray paint (Blue & Black)

A ring (a giant key ring or shower ring will do)

Scissors * try to use fabric scissors, you will see why!

A sewing kit or safety pins.

EDWARD

Grey or Black suit

Tie

Briefcase

Old 90's cell phone if you can get one

Silver spray in hair color.

HOW TO:

Take the plain white T-shirt outside (we could only find long sleeved so we cut the sleeves off) lay it flat and using the blue spray paint, spray in horizontal lines like this on both sides.

Then take your black paint and do the same.

Once both sides are done, let it dry a few minute. Then take your scissors and cut out the arm pits in half moon shape leaving some material at the top to attach to the ring.

This is why fabric scissors are important!! It was hard to cut straight but when it was on, you couldn't tell.

Do the same with the tank top leaving the bottom longer to wrap.
