This is a write up of a unicorn costume I made last summer, I can’t believe I never posted it here!! I think it was maybe before I started this particular blog? Anyway…this is the first time I ever dressed up as a unicorn and what started me on a hair adventure that ended up in a mohawk
I made this outfit the night before the event! My headdress was so heavy and unbalanced that I pulled up my hair and sewed it on with big yarn! I borrowed a cyberlox hair fall from my roommate and added some of my own flair to it to make it more of a mane and horn. This bikini top is very simple, more or less a rectangle gathered in the middle with straps. I love this top because it’s reversible!
The hooves were one of my favorite parts of this project. I had a blue holographic bag that I got at a thrift store and I knew it would be perfect for the horn and hooves. The hooves are also quite simple though I can’t find anything online similar to what I made so I should make a tutorial for you!
This skirt is truly a favorite! It’s based off a treasured vintage piece my friend Eddie Kent found for me several years ago. There are lots of great tutorials for similar skirts so check ‘em out and experiment. I made mine tie in front so it would adjust to different parts of my body depending on my whims. I didn’t have good comfortable shoes that looked cute so at the last second I tied some fabric onto my shoes and voila! Cute and comfy!
It’s hard to resist holding your hooves up when you have them!
Back view of the headdress, hello tattoo!
I decided to make blue costumes as Ike always wears the color blue and I wanted a good excuse to make him a new pair of bell bottom pants. Ike was a saint and carried all my gear so I could prance about.
Ike made his own horn. And I love those glasses!
Last minute swishy tail. Just some cut up fabric attached with a giant safety pin.
We found lots of blue friends, awww! I also got some cute picture of other unicorns! Check out ‘em out in rainbow order!
Chris makes amazing tie dyed flags.
Eva is amazing and always wears amazing bicycle helmets!
And my favorite unicorn of all Ali Luminescent! She is truly amazing and one of my biggest inspirations. She is always doing some sort of amazing creative project and brings so much light to this world. She led us on this parade for hours on stilts!
Boston is really rainy now so it’s beautiful to go back in time to when the sun was energizing atoms to warm our skin
