Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!!!
And what is Buzz Lightyear if he didn't have Sheriff Woody to throw him out a window?
I made sure there was a snake in his boot.
I made all the parts of my costume except the jetpack (wings) for $12 and the gloves for $6, both at Amazon. I painted my shoes, which were leftovers from my cheerleader outfit last year. We went out to the Halloween Loop...even thought it was actually SNOWING (!!!) and I met two other Buzz Lightyears, but no one else had a space helmet but me!
The space helmet was made out of clear vinyl from the fabric store (half yard for $2), beading wire ($4), and a $3 plastic embroidery loop. It was essential that it was super lightweight and that I could breathe (and drink) with it on. The space helmet totally protected me from the elements (rain, snow, and drunk boys that stepped a little too close). Oh, and I was the only girl who was dressed as Buzz Lightyear. Come to think of it, I was the most covered up girl (and definitely the warmest!) all night!
I'd have to say, this definitely shows why I ended up as a prosthetist-orthotist. I like making stuff.
You've got a friend in me! Happy Halloween everyone!
