To finish off the space theme that we have going on here, we decided to make space girl costumes. I thought it would be pretty easy to find some ideas on line, but alas, I didn't like the few ideas I found. So...I figured I could make them up myself.
We hit the local Goodwill for some old clothes that I thought might take the spray paint pretty well. Took them in to make them fit the girls and then...sprayed them with lots of shiny metallic silver. (Good thing Chuck is here to do all the spraying, I got a finger cramp after one can of spray paint). I saved some soda bottles for their air-packs and finished them off with air tubes. The helmets were really giving me troubles. Chuck came up with the idea of covering their bike helmets with foil. Add a few "patches" and ta-da...space girl to the rescue.
