I then decided I would make a hula skirt out of crepe paper. I taped the paper on the belt and....it looked ridiculous. See picture below....it looked too bad on to even take a picture of it wearing it!
I added a braid in my hair and a red lei (oh, and a red DIY hair tie on my wrist). So - even though I didn't have the skirt or the headdress, I feel like I made it work. I also found some sweet glow sticks at the Dollar Tree to act as my torches. They were fun! I can't believe how much light they actually give off.
The party was fun. I don't want to give anything away in case you end up going to this one as well, but we had lot of yummy food and had a good time hanging out with friends. Everyone was very creative in their outfits and we all stayed in character most of the time. Also, thankfully I didn't die like last time!
