And wear this for halloween?
We're going to a dressy up party for it and I want to go as something fun, I know it's not exactly scary but I still think it will look great.

DP has said he will refuse to be seen with me if I insist on wearing it. Aibu to think he is a party pooper?

It's fine, what exactly is his problem?

grin Sorry but I'm laughing.

hahaha

His problem is that I'll be dressed as a pink, sparkly unicorn. He's very sensible and thinks I'm crazy!

Euphemia Sun 29-Sep-13 17:17:32

I love it! I don't really see what it has to do with Halloween, but each to her own!

dopeysheep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:19:26

What is his suggestion then? I like the unicorn. What is the horn made of?

Does he not realise that sensible and dressing up party are mutually exclusive concepts, IfYouLoveSomebody??

If you want to wear it, go ahead. You might need to remember that horn when you go through doorways. grin

Is your DP going dressed up?

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:20:52

What if I carried a zombie head like a little party bag. Would that make it halloweeny?

His suggestion was a sexy witch hmm

Put a zombie head on top of the horn.

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:22:14

He is going as wolverine. Yawn.

Dunno how you'd make it, rolled up cardboard painted white and glittery?

BillyBanter Sun 29-Sep-13 17:22:30

Look at you dressed as a sparkly pink unicorn, looking like a fool. Why can't you dress sensibly like me and my friends, in our bloodied zombie outfits.

I will be gutted if you don't wear this OP. What an amazing costume idea!! If I had anywhere to go dressed as a unicorn I'd do it in a heartbeat. So many women go as a "sexy..." Insert whatever non Halloween related costume here, it becomes boring! Yours will be the best at the party smile

dopeysheep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:25:31

Sexy witch pfffft. Anyway a unicorn goes well with wolverine. I think you should wear it it's great.

DejaVuAllOverAgain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:26:21

OP that made me laugh...in a good way grin

You have to wear it. If I was at the same party and saw you wearing that I'd have to get to know you simply because it would put a smile on my face and generally people who can put a smile on my face are the ones I get on with.

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:27:34

I'd hate for you to be upset Tess, I guess I'll have to go through with it grin

Now where can I get a nice wig and sparkly shoes from?

TSSDNCOP Sun 29-Sep-13 17:34:47

Here's a great wig OP.

That is seriously awesome, you can go as anything for Halloween these days as long as you make the effort. Last year we had pinatas for the party and I got a unicorn one and chucked some fake blood all over its horn.

Just a thought, make sure you make the horn a convincing horn shape and maybe go heavy on the sparkles so it's not just pink and phallic...

wildfig Sun 29-Sep-13 17:38:48

I think it's brilliant, so long as you add a tail and/or hooves to make it very clear you're a unicorn, and not, say, one of the Pet Shop Boys gone more disco.

ZZZenagain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:39:20

it is not really a Halloween outfit in terms of dark and spooky but I like it.

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:41:02

Anyone good at crafty stuff, how would you make the horn?

Don't worry charles, I plan on being the sparkliest thing in all of sparkle history. I saw someone go as a sleeping bag to halloween last year, how is that scary? At least a unicorn looks nice smile

macthecatsmum Sun 29-Sep-13 17:42:29

That is fantabulous. My DD is now re considering her zombie Alice. Def beats "sexy witch" cak. and when he is hot, sweaty and wondering how to drink with admantium claws and a mask-you will still look cool.

ZZZenagain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:43:42

maybe the sleeping bag was a germ? Friend of mine went as a pimple once and oozed custard out of a bag through a hole in the sheet she was covered with.

Mind you we were at school back then
