I just finished making my trophies for this year's costume contest.They are made out of the cement decorations from the Dollar Tree and wooden plaques from Hobby Lobby. I didn't like the cement look they had, so I painted them gold to make them look kind of fancy. I tried to bring out the details by using black and sometimes black mixed with gold.

My friend and I decided to be Thing 1 and Thing 2 for Halloween 2011. Costume is pretty simple, but cute. Tried to dye our hair with blue hairspray (kind of worked, but it makes your hair really stiff, so try avoid touching your head...). It was either that or buy a 50 dollar wig, no thanks! You can easily purchase these shirts online. Bought the blue shirts from Kohls, the blue slippers from Gordmans, and I think we got the red tights from Frederick's.
