My mother in law suggested the following when I asked if she could help
me out with a nutcracker themed parade costume.....
It sounds like some fairly easily implemented ideas to me.
I'll have to think about the nutcracker thing. Do you want to dress
soldier -- typical nutcracker? Cover some large circles with gold
paper (or silver in a pinch) and hot glue (or whatever) these to your
front -- one row on the left and one on the right. If you can find
wide ribbon, use that to make a big X across your chest from shoulder
waist. It could go over the back, too. Use safety pins to pin this.
A colorful shirt would work best -- red or blue or green maybe. The
can be any contrasting color or just white. I'll have to think about a
Most of the ones I have seen have hats sort of like a top hat. If you
find some white gloves, that would be good. Maybe some of those white
canvas work gloves would do. I don't think I'd worry about doing
to your pants.
If you want to go all out, put red "rouge" spots on your cheeks. I
seen nutcrackers with crowns for hats.
When is the costume committee getting together? I am not artistically
talented, but I can use a glue gun.
