Want to know how to make these cute little Pichu ears?
If you're on a budget around Halloween (whether you're saving up for Christmas time or you just flat out don't have the income to throw money at a full costume) making homemade costume pieces is a budget friendly way to celebrate without setting yourself back $50.
 I came down with a nasty cold that night.
In 2008, I went to New York to see Portugal. the Man at the Bowery Ballroom on Halloween night. I had originally decided on making Pikachu ears but they turned out to be too heavy to hold themselves up. (This was before I figured out wire could be used to shape and support the weight of the ears.) As you can see, I barely dressed up. That's a yellow 3/4 sleeve shirt from Old Navy which I'm pretty sure I wore with black jeans. It was cold that night and I had to walk pretty far from my car to the venue.
