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.

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.

TessTackle Sun 29-Sep-13 17:23:08

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 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.

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 17:35:27

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

rockybalboa Sun 29-Sep-13 17:43:55

Ha, that's fab!

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:46:33

I know it's not spooky but I don't know what other occasion I would get chance to wear it, and I reeeeaally want to wear it.

Looking at sequinned dresses now smile

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 17:46:38

A sleeping bag? Did they just shuffle around wearing a sleeping bag, that's just lazy from all angles!

Just saw the whole blog post, realised she looks like a my little pony...May have to realise those childhood dreams this Halloween «scuttled off to make ingenious hoof legwarmers out of an old jumper»

MrsMongoose Sun 29-Sep-13 17:49:00

YES WEAR IT. It is glorious. You will be the pinkest, sparkliest unicorn ever and everyone will want to be you.

ZZZenagain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:49:19

just make the horn out of rolled up cardboard like a minature witches hat? Then paint and glinter.

MagicLlama Sun 29-Sep-13 17:50:08

Ha, that is awesome!

I'm going to a party this weekend, its high school horror movie theme, but I now want to go as a unicorn. I am sure somewhere there will be a horror movie containing a unicorn!

And the legwarmers .. genius!

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 17:50:32

That should say scuttles (well actually it should really say 'trots' )

Don't listen to the neighsayers, go for it.


ZZZenagain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:51:29

only thing I would change is the pink tights.

SummerRain Sun 29-Sep-13 17:52:12

That is so cute and funky. You have to do it grin

Tell him to take the stick out of his arse and lighten up, its Halloween ffs!

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:55:09

That is exactly what they did, with a little hole cut out for their face. They did look very cosy though.

Yeah I wouldn't have the pink tights either cos I'd be afraid of my legs looking like bright pink sausages. Do you like these shoes for it? Be honest!

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 17:57:49

There was a unicorn in the cabin in the woods Magic!

You are making me laugh charles grin

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 17:57:55

The shoes are great! Love love love them.
They look very stable, but the mane thing is you like them.

Gets coat.

Weegiemum Sun 29-Sep-13 17:58:13

My dd1 now wants to dress up like this to go to my brothers wedding on Halloween. Not sure she'd get away with it (she's 13).

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 17:58:55

Puts coat back down, yay! grin

ZZZenagain Sun 29-Sep-13 18:01:08

A 13 year old would look cute dressed up as a unicorn. She could do it a bit differently. The dress maybe, different shoes. I think it is a fun outfit.

I think the shoes would work. I couldn't possibly dance in those but if you can, go for it.

SoupDragon Sun 29-Sep-13 18:01:11

Tell him it'll make you feel horny. He'll change his mind, guaranteed.

Lweji Sun 29-Sep-13 18:04:24

I wouldn't be seen dead in it, but if it rocks your boat...

HaroldLloyd Sun 29-Sep-13 18:06:28

I'd be tempted to put a rampant rabbit on my head instead.

SpookyNameChange13 Sun 29-Sep-13 18:07:27

That is a fabulous costume.

Do it!...please take and post some pics!

Zombie unicorn? Fake blood, zombie makeup?

sandiy Sun 29-Sep-13 18:23:48

Can I lower the tone by about a million degrees but I once saw a porn star wearing something similar to some porn awards event.only the tail part was in a butt plug and she had split botty pants on.I think it was on that odd program with the French bloke who called everyone his leetle English chums.I was v drunk so could have dreamed it. But hey that's just me.

oldgrandmama Sun 29-Sep-13 18:27:35

You look great. Wear it.

Love it! Have a fantastic party smile (Leave DH at home!!)

DejaVuAllOverAgain Sun 29-Sep-13 18:33:51

Could you find white tights/leggings and sprinkle some glitter/sequins on them instead of the pink tights.

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 18:35:12

shock at sandiy's buttplug wearing porn star. She walked around in public with it in place?? Did it make her appear lame? Horses for courses I suppose...

edam Sun 29-Sep-13 18:36:55

unicorns are baddies - or at least, the tools of baddies - in Terry Pratchett. The one about elves. So I think they count for Halloween.

Lovecat Sun 29-Sep-13 18:44:15


A couple of years ago a dear but insane friend made me one of these for a party after we'd seen Britney wearing one on Glee.

Once the drink started flowing a surprising number of men wanted to wear it... grin

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 29-Sep-13 19:06:39

Oh that is a very nice horn Lovecat!

Yay, I'm glad it meets the MN approval. I best start getting it all together as I don't want to rush it. God knows how I'll keep a wig on my head all night though, aren't they itchy little buggers?

kali110 Sun 29-Sep-13 19:14:46

Omg do it!!ill always ignore dp anyway. I bought a cap in shape of a fox with ears so hes already refusing to look atme lol

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 19:27:46

Wigs 101:
Buy some cheap nude stockings. Cut the thigh top of the stocking off (about half way down). Put the thigh opening of the stocking on your head and pull it up to your hairline (if I've lost you here your hairline is the top of your thigh in relation to normal stocking wear). Pull the open cut off bit up and tie it in a knot at the top of your head, snip off the excess to be left with the tiny knot. You should now have a scull cap that works as a barrier to itchy wig and something you can grip the wig too using hairline and grips. Thus resulting in a wig you can do cartwheels in and a non itchy head.

charleslingus Sun 29-Sep-13 19:29:18

«to» «hairpins»

WeleaseWodger Sun 29-Sep-13 19:41:11

Sorry, I'm with your DP. It's a dress with a paper dildo on your head. How is that a unicorn? No, you will be a pink rhino.

MrsDavidBowie Sun 29-Sep-13 19:42:50

You could do serious damage with that if you bent your head and charged.
Or got on your hands and knees.

I think your dh has penis envy.

FriskyHenderson Sun 29-Sep-13 19:44:25

Tell him to trot on.

spanky2 Sun 29-Sep-13 19:53:21

Trot on! Haha !grin

Mojavewonderer Sun 29-Sep-13 20:27:20

I don't do cute I do scary because I am horror mad! I am going as Zombie Alice.

Opalite Sun 29-Sep-13 23:38:13

Sexy witch... BOR-RING!
Absolutely brilliant, I love it. The thing is though, it's not even that crazy or out-there... I dressed as a lava lamp last year which definitely beat the previous years bumble bee.

dopeysheep Mon 30-Sep-13 10:19:28

Was it that show Eurotrash? Was it with JP Gaultier ans Antoin des something?
I reckon they would have a butt plugged porn star on that show.

meganorks Mon 30-Sep-13 10:21:57

If you want to go as a dickhead then you absolutely have the right to....

charleslingus Mon 30-Sep-13 11:41:50

Cone dick, that common phenomenon.

AlpacaPicnic Mon 30-Sep-13 13:28:22

I once went out on Halloween as a cow! I now wish I could be a unicorn but I'm a bit fat for pulling it off... Fat cow works better tham fat unicorn :-D

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Mon 30-Sep-13 13:59:03

Oh that's harsh mega!
Well I love it and I'm excited to be a unicorn for the night smile

vtechjazz Mon 30-Sep-13 14:34:20

Wear a set of fangs, and draw a few drops of blood on your chin and you become killer vampire unicorn.

Then fill the horn with fruit and veg for harvest festival, the 'unicorn-horn of plenty'.

Then wear a red nose at Christmas with it, Rudolf/unicorn.

Basically you should trot this outfit out for every single occasion from now on.
