Okay, so far I have:
-3 different colors of Red Heart yarn from Wal-Mart (white, black and a deep red)
-A spiky collar from Wal-Mart (found amoungst the halloween stuff)
-3 fabric markers from Jo-Anne's
-an 8 ft. cord from Jo-Anne's
I think I'm doing pretty good. >3 I'm going to be getting my unitard from Discount Danceware (since ADA has let me down). It's about the same amount of money so...yeah. I am shocked to say that I didn't see any Halloween make-up at Wal-Mart, but I'm bound to find some nearer to October.
Here's a little photo of the materials I have.
I don't remember the name of the cord, but it's got mesh over it. I guess I'm trying to figure out if it's better to braid a cord from the yarn I have or to use the cord I bought from Jo-Anne's. Each thing of yarn is 364 yrds. Would that be enough to braid into a cord and use it to make the tail AND maybe the arm warmers?
