christmas costumes, no bathrobes allowed

I've maintained for sometime that Christmas is a very good time for costume creations. In the first place, you can easily limit the color scheme to red, green, and white. Costume materials are in cheap abundance at your local big box store. And no one expects it.

The dear former roommate who now lives in the desert came to visit friends and family for holidays. Her arrival coincided with an annual ugly sweater party. This year's theme: Fa La La Fiesta. Not owning any ugly sweaters and supporting my christmas costume philosophy, dear former roommate and I went to work on our costume. We'd set a high standard the previous year as Christmas Cheer (leaders) complete with tinsel pompoms and pigtails.

Our furious puff-painting on goodwill shirts/brown paper molding/cardboard cutting/tinsel taping efforts produced something I'm quite proud of, actually:
The Merry Mariachis
