Pool Party Thoughts

Ok, so I finally dug out my old bluetooth keyboard, so now osting should be much easier with my tablet.  Yay!  Thanks Katherine for the reminder. ;)

Does anyone know, can i share pins from Pinterest here?  I want to show you the pool party costume I'm thinking of making.  It's super cool but will be about $50 to make and I'm not sure it's worth it, but I will be able to wear it for Halloween too.  It's a jellyfish costume.  A photosensitive jellyfish to be exact. :)  I was a jellyfish for Halloween about 10 years ago and I loved it.  Let me see if I can link pictures at least...

Have any of you ever seen "The Boyfriend" with Twiggy?  It's one of my all time favorite movies and theres a great scene called "Sur la Plage"  with dancing (tap ddancing really) Jellyfish, and that's the costume I based mine off of 10 years ago.  I wish I had a picture of it!

Here's one I found online:


so basically it was a hat.  I used a hula hoop covered in fabric wtih a bridal headpiece attached, then created the tentacles.  This was the same time as Finding Nemo so I had a little Nemo doll with me.

Anyway, here's a look at what I want to make!

finally.  That took forever to figure out.  For some reason, saving the image to my tablet is not working.  Anyway, this is from pinterest, but I linked the original post above.  She used LED lights and strings.  That's the part that would cost me...  What do you guys think though?  Isn't it cool? :)

I love it!

You know, you can make a super easy base for this out of a clear umbrella - I found one at the dollar store. Then you could spend your $ on lights and shiny stuff. :-)

OMG, that sounds like so much fun I want a whole bunch of us to do this!!!!!

Yeah, that's what she used. Well, a clear bubble umbrella. I think a regular one could work too but with the bubble you can be mostly hidden. I will totally do it if we have a group! But I heard there's a Capitol fashion group for the pool party?

There's always groups bubbling along for everything, most of which I don't know about. LoL!

I don't know if anyone else has time to make a jellyfish. Now that I think of it, I got my clear bubble umbrella at Daiso, and it was $3. I don't know if I'll have time to do-dad it up, but I'll try. :-)

Where are you getting your electronics and how are you powering them?

Anyone else want to do this?

Nice to see you on LJ!

I love this jellyfish idea and I think it would be really fun to make. And then you would be hard to lose at any party!
