  1. We are doing an 80’s theme in our department for halloween. I was stumped for a cohesive idea and you just solved it for me. I’ll go as Punky!

  2. I love Punky Brewster. It might be 2012 now.At first I thought I wouldn’t like it,when mom bought it for me. first find a colorful shirt. next find a vest. now get a pair of jeans,with one of one of the bottoms rolled a bandana for the loop in the middle of your jeans.find a pair of socks that are the same,but different colors. do again,but with shoes. 2 sun pony tail holders.make pig tails. use brown mascara for her freckles. make sure you have straight bangs.
