A word from Brandi, the 'Struck With Lightning' costume creator:
This is my boyfriend and I. We came up with this unique costume by doing a little online research and by listening to one of our favorite artists, Ellie Goulding. One of her lyrics says "when you look at me it's like you hit me with lightning" and that when I came up with the idea! The lightning bolt was completely made from scratch, as i got foam and cut it into a lightning bolt shape and pinned some yellow fabric to it. My burnt shirt was literally burnt to give a realistic toasted look. Crimped hair and an old umbrella added the final shocking details. My boyfriend Ryan also had one of those prank hand shocking toys (more like a vibration) so that when he shook people's hands, it game them a little buzzing surprise. It really added character to his part of the costume. Everyone loved out unique costume and I'm glad we came up with something that isn't typically work! so much fun!
