I wanted something unique and funny for my company costume contest. I saw the girl in the green loofah on this website, and I was sold! (thanks Wendy in FL!)
I decided to be a loofah, but expand on it a little. I bought 20 yards of purple netting on sale for $.77/yd. (tulle will work too), 1 yard of white cording, and box of safety pins at a craft store. I had an old black dress that I never wore, so I cut it off just above the knee. This was my base to anchor the netting to. A tank top would probably work too or even a t-shirt.
Then, I just started bunching the netting and safety pinning it until I covered the dress completely. It only took about an hour. You could sew it, but that would take a lot longer. When it was done, I thought it still needed “something”.
So, I went to a costume store and got a purple clown wig for $4 and a white mask for $.60 (they were having a great sale). I have a long sleeved purple shirt to wear and black pants. When it was all finished I decided to call myself the “Showerpuff Girl” and be a “CLEAN” super hero!
To top it off, I am going to take a bottle of bubbles and blow bubbles during the costume contest. I think I have a good chance? what do you think? Even if I don’t win, I know I will get some laughs!
Total Cost: $23
