A drink...in my hand...my snow up against the burning sand...
Seriously, it felt like I was In Summer on Halloween. 80 degrees and a snow cap do not mix. Put me in summer and I was not a happy snowman. I was a puddle.
However, I was particularly proud of my Olaf costume this year since it cost me exactly ZERO dollars to make. While catching up on DVR-ed episodes of Last Man On Earth (in the running for current favorite show), I made my hat with the following:
- 1 manila folder
- Construction paper - white, black, light blue and orange
- A sharpie
- Glue stick
- Safety pins
Next, I cut out a carrot shape for the nose and then outlined it on the folder. Once I cut out the shape from the folder, I glued it on and taped a pin on the back. For the teeth, I cut out just the teeth shape from white construction paper. When I traced it on the manila folder, I added the smile line with a Sharpie pin and cut out the whole thing. Another safety pin secured it in place. The hair was made of twisted strips of black construction paper that I pinned on the top.
Following the same method as above, I cut out coal buttons to pin on a long sleeve white tee. I threw on white shorts over white tights and zipped up my black knee high boots. Just like that, Olaf hit the town as a side kick to a tiny, two-year-old Elsa, melting in the hot fall sun.
Sometimes, a costume is worth melting for.
