Rainbow Brite

Last Updated: 11-01-2009


I love Rainbow Brite. I always make a habit of doing something non-anime for Halloween. Since my son was born I've been Original Strawberry Shortcake and Alice in Wonderland. Now I went back to the 80s again with Rainbow. It's rare to see this costume done well, so I took on the challenge. I'm not thrilled with how the sleeves turned out. I may remake them. I also never finished my wig or boots. I just cut bangs into my own hair and went as a brunette brite and wore my Sailor Moon boots. Close enough for Halloween, but I'll finish it before Megacon.

Costume is entirely Spandex and quilt batting. The main body is a heavier spanex while the sleeves and belt are the lighter stuff from Joann. The belt is 2 widths of elastic covered with spandex.

Made the whole thing in 2 days, but they were 2 LONG days. The boots could take longer than the dress, and I've never added wefts to a wig, so ponytailing the wig might be a challenge. We'll see how it goes!
