I wanted an easy DIY costume for Halloween, and I happened upon Flo while checking out Halloween-related Pinterest boards. I already had a white polo shirt, white pants, and navy canvas shoes. I only had to buy an apron, a “bump-it” for my hair, a headband, and red lipstick. I downloaded the tricked out name tag, “heart” insurance button, Auto box, and Progressive logo templates from the Progressive website.
I used iron on transfer paper to get the logo on my apron, and pasted the name tag and button to cardboard and attached it to my apron using a safety pin. I had a small rectangular cardboard box that I pasted the Autobox template on the front and sides for me to carry. My hair looks a lot like Flo’s, so all I had to do was tease the crown, put in the bump-it, and flip out the ends….then hairspray, hairspray, hairspray!
Add some heavy black cat eye liner and some cherry red lipstick, and I was transformed! We had a costume contest at work and I tied for 1st place for “Most Original”! Everyone was raving over my look and said I looked EXACTLY like Flo! “Glitter, Rainbow Unicorn!”
