road show costumes

The youth at my church are doing a performance for what we call a "road show" - basically the kids from each congregation in the area put together a short, musical-type skit, and then we all get together to watch and enjoy. I'm helping out with costumes. It's a good thing my mom arrived this week, because I'm not sure if I would have been able to get it done otherwise.

 
We have a group of cheerleaders in our skit called the Lucky Charms, so I made them lucky horseshoe shirts, some old-school pom pom hair bands, and a megaphone prop.  The shirts are kind of fun because I added glitter to the top coat of the stencil paint (these shirts are freezer paper stenciled) and attached some rhinestones using Elmer's Craft Bond Fabric and Paper Glue.  They should really sparkle under the stage lights.

Phew.  So glad these are done.

P.S.  I'm having a baby TOMORROW.  Wish me luck.  :)

GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Hobbyannette said...

Congrats!
And the costumes look great! But you have the horseshoe upside down :/
At least here in Norway, if you hang the horseshoe that way, the luck runs out... I'm not superstitious about alot, but that has gotten stuck in my head :p

claudia said...

Sarah Burrell said...

Love all your ideas Jill! I only know you from your blog (although, random, awhile ago I was reading through old posts and noticed that you're friends with my old roommate from BYU, Cara, and her husband Frank, strange small world), but I wanted to say good luck and congratulations on having your baby girl tomorrow! Can't wait to see pictures.

Jill said...

Hooray for Baby Girl! They are such perfectly formed, absolutely amazing miracles. Enjoy yours (after all that work that you'll do to get her, of course).

What a fun promise tomorrow will bring!

JaneyJ said...

Jill, I wish you the best of luck with your beautiful baby girl! Hoping the delivery is safe, uncomplicated and a beautiful experience for your family!

ps love the Lucky Charms uniforms...I hope some of the girls are Colts fans! They'll be great "game-day" shirts!

Sarah said...

Larissa said...

YEAH for little Ruby coming tomorrow. Such an exciting time. It will go great and before you know it you will be a sweet family of 4.

Enjoy tomorrow...I know silly, but really setting aside the whole actually having the baby, that first day is a joy.

Jodie said...
