I dressed up as “Buddy the Elf” from the Will Ferrell movie, “Elf”. I used a shirt that says “Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins”, one of Buddy’s favorite things to say in the movie and a hat that I made from scratch that is identical to the one from the movie (Son of a Nutcracker!!).
Instead of tights I opted for a tiny pair of yellow shorts and I pair of thigh-high yellow socks. I made shoes that are just like the ones Buddy wears in the movie, black with little balls hanging off of the ends. My curly hair and height (I am six feet seven inches tall) really help sell the Homemade Buddy the Elf Costume for me! I only said Buddy the Elf lines all night, never breaking character (We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup!).
Multiple random people stopped me for pictures! What’s your favorite color?
