I don’t know about you, but I just loofah Halloween. It’s the only day of the year when “adults” (or at least that’s what we call ourselves) can get away with looking absolutely ridiculous (or in many cases, absolutely slooty). You see, for me, Halloween is the one day out of the year that I’m completely fine with throwing fashion out the door as long as I have a great costume like pregnant Beyonce, or this:
Thanks to Pinterest, my costume was great. I mean, it’s not everyday you get to walk around town dressed like a loofah! In fact, my friends and I had so much fun being loofahs that we dressed up in our costumes not once:
but three times:
Being the girls that we are, glitter hair spray and body sparkles were an obvious add on – and bubbles. You can’t forget the bubbles!
And while we weren’t the only loofahs in town, or the first loofahs in history, the fact that I still have glitter stuck to my skin (trust me, I shower everyday, but glitter is impossible to get off!), means we were probably among the sparkliest loofahs around.
How you ask? How did you make these giant shower pouffs? For starters, we bought yards and yards and even more yards of netting (not tulle – tulle is for tutus). We then followed the detailed directions outlined on this blog that linked from the original loofah costumes we found on Pinterest. Think making giant bows and pouffing them out. HUGE props to the crafty person who came up with the idea and wrote out the directions because I personally don’t have the patience for all that. Anyhow, I hope to see more loofahs around in the coming years ;)
Stay clean & Aloha.
