make me a bird. so I could fly far. far far away from here...

hope you all had a fun halloween! for this halloween i made myself a bird. i got the leotard and a old sheet at the thirft store. I transformed the sheet to be my wings and drew feathers all over one side. I made a feather mask with a beak covered in feathers. I also stuck feathers in my hair braid and made a feather necklace. it was fun being a free bird. for halloween i started the night at my little sisters house and did some trick or treating with her- she was a zebra. i shut my finger in the car door (that's the cause of the funny face of disapointment above). it was ok just needed a bandage or two. later i went out to moonfest on clematis street and did some flying around on the dance floor.
p.s. sorry for the lack of posts. my computer is getting slower and slower. i will fix it soon. xo
peace & love!

Aw, I love your costume, really creative, as I don't think I've seen anyone dressed up as a bird, ever, and everyone this year seems to be going as Michael Jackson or Lady Gaga, so I love seeing something fresh! <3
