Omg this is absolutely adorable!!! lol Thanks so much for sharing I love that you guys are going to be the "fire" ahahaha, he's going to be so excited!! Cherish every moment!Our son is going to be a fireman and hubby and I are going as his "fires" We got him a hat and custom fire outfit with our town's name and his name as the fire chief on the front. I bought two of these light-up foam fire wigs from Target for hubby and I and we're going to wear all black. Em's treat bag will be a bucket with confetti "water" in it this year. To say I'm excited is an understatement, he's five so this is really the first year he's been super excited.
i am actually trying to dress up as king xerxes from the 300 movies. there is no set costume. i have to be creative with my jewelry, and i'm actually looking for ideas on how to make it happen. i have been developing a list of different terms to search for jewelry on ebay. originally i thought just typing "persian jewelry" would be all that i would need to do but, it's requiring more than that. i have been looking up "leg jewelry" "arm jewelry" "head jewelry" to try and find things that would work best. i will try and insert a pic image or a link so you can see. the biggest thing that i can't seem to identify is the jewelry around his neck, and the piece that is on his chest, that seems to be a hub where a bunch of chains are attached to. i believe it may be labeled a "harness" but this search hasn't provided me any success. if anyone is familiar or has any ideas, i would love to hear them.
thank you. if i am able to pull this off, i will definitely post a pic. however, i am not good with needle nose pliers. i am, however, going to try and find a jewelry supply store. i have printed out these pictures as well. maybe if i take them in there with me and show them someone could help assist a little more....This is an excellent idea for a costume. If you are good with needle nose pliers you could go to any jewelry supply store and buy a bunch of gold tone chains that you can then cut and reattach at different points. Perhaps put in clasps.
I guess you could also buy the chains by the yard on eBay.
Good luck! Hope you succeed and post a pic.
