Wear it Wednesdays: 80s Rubiks Cube Costume

In our efforts to win a new car AND a million dollars lol me and my girls recently went on Let's Make a Deal. Before going on the show, they tell you to wear an outrageous costume in order to increase your chances of getting picked. So I searched deep inside this 1980's baby heart of mine and came up with the perfect idea, I would be a rubik's cube! But not just ANY rubik's cube, I would be a vintage 80s rubik's cube :)

I started With this plain old cardboard box:


And with a lot of black duct tape, colored paper and a glue gun I turned it into this:


I decided to dress in my finest funky fresh 80s gear to add a little sass to the costume. So I added a big curly wig, black eyeglass frames, some leg warmers, a rope name chain, some bamboo earrings (*in my LL voice* at least 2 pair), a real 80s skytel pager and a vintage 80s bodysuit (thrifted).

Here's the look without the rubics cube:


And here's everything all together:


But after investing all my time, and being there hungry and hot and sweaty and being unable to move my hands, I left winning a big fat..........wait for it, wait for it!.......nothing lol not even a zonk! But I had a ball and with all my dance fever, I probably lost 2-3 pounds hehe!

Stay tuned,
Eb
