A word from Rachel, the 'Rainbow Storm with the Pot of Gold' costume creator:
I started with looking for an "easy costume to make with tulle"...because I love everything tulle. Thought a rainbow would be fun... As I continued to research ideas, thought adding a cloud (to be a true storm!) would be fun...then that kind of got out of control as I started thinking about adding lights (I could manually blink them as "lightning"), and making all the "rain" so it would be small, lightweight, and shiny/glittery. Then once I got that all done, I was like, "how can I involve my dog?" So I made her a pot of gold. Sawed apart a black cauldron, many layers of glitter paint, super glued coins onto a cut-up t-shirt, then attached it all together, and of course had to find a doll's hat to paint gold as well... It took several weeks of late nights, but it all turned out pretty adorable!
