I wanted to do an original/homemade costume and saw a picture of a girl as a sexy leprechaun next to a guy painted gold with a pot around his waist. My husband was not all for painting his body gold and I was not at all for wearing a tiny little dress. So I switched the roles! I got the cauldron from Party City and cut the bottom out for around my waist. Also from Party City I got the rainbow suspenders and the rainbow tights and the $$ money glasses. I already had the red flats and I paired it all with a black shirt and black shorts underneath. The coins were just cardboard cut out and spray painted with gold spray paint.
My husband was a leprechaun (off the shelf costume but I’m sure you can easily do a homemade one).
Everyone at the party loved our original homemade costumes!
