This Halloween I’m dressing up as a one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater. It’s really cool. (I’m surprised how many people have never heard the song and think I am an eye fairy, butterfly or unicorn.) We used black felt and a white scarf (that I can see through) for an eye. I got the idea to use a noise maker covered in yellow felt as the horn (I wouldn’t go near the hot glue gun, though). We searched lots of places for purple stuff, too; purple shirts, purple pants, purple fur, purple feathers, purple hats, you name it! Let’s just say that after Halloween, I won’t be doing purple for a long time. We also got a foam manikin head to put the hat on when we weren’t using it. Otherwise the horn my mom sewed on would get crushed!
