Through the years, when I wore my hair in braids, all my friends said I looked like the girl from Wendy’s fast food restaurant. When it was time to decide what I wanted to be for Halloween I just knew my friends would be happy when I told them I was going to be Wendy.

One year I was Pipi Long -stocking and still had the hanger headband thing to keep my hair sticking up. So I wanted to use that again. I used a wire hanger and used more wire to keep the hanger on the headband. I braided my hair, then stuck it on the hanger. I bought blue ribbon for the bows too.

For the outfit part I borrowed my friend’s Dorothy dress. I bought an apron from a maid costume and printed out a Wendy’s logo to glue and staple it to the apron. I also used red and white striped socks and my Uggs boots. I had brown eye pencil to make 3 little freckles on both sides on my face.

This homemade Wendy’s costume was a big hit in my school and many people thought the costume was very cute.
