Lainey and I purloined some disposable chopsticks last time we went to China One for lunch. I wrapped them with red and green jewelry wire and acrylic beads to make some jeweled chopsticks for the hair.
All the other classes had prom dresses and up do's. But one of the other classes went all out and spend like $90 on fake hair and styrofoam and all this stuff to make a Christmas tree and snowman and mrs Claus. Theirs was fantastic, BUT they have 18 students in their class, and they each chipped in $5 for their fashion show. We spent $1.10. Thats it. Between the 10 of us, we each did a little something to contribute. Everything was brought from home, stuff people already had etc. The only money spent was on the poinsettia and the christmas decorative stem.
The directors really liked it. But I dont think they realized how much time we spent on the wig and making everything. I dont think they realized that we spent NO MONEY putting together our show and theme. We have the smallest class in school and we were as awesome as the bigger class who spent a ton of money for theirs.
I am just really proud of this. These photos are going in my portfolio.
