My nephew told me one day that I should be Blue from the Disney movie Rio. I’m a dancer so I got the inspiration from Rio Carnival – love the colors and they themes. I use yarn because I crochet. I also used Christmas ornaments, dollar store products, rhinestones and feathers plus glitter. I  started making my costume at the beginning of this year and and I just finished with it this month. It’s really one of a kind.

I had a bad experience when my nephew broke my wings, but with all the things life brings you, my costume kept me smiling and kept me thinking of how good I feel.
