Sims Plumbob Halloween Costume

Jamoo neeshga neeshga shoo flee llamas

I needed something quick for Casa Nami’s Halloween Sing-ALong Party last Monday*; one that did not require sewing, a baby jogger city versa, body paint, or spending more than 100 pesos. I’ve always wanted to go as a Sim so I figured I could do some origami and make a plumbob.

* I don’t sing… ever. Unless drunk and surrounded by people who will not judge me for my terrible singing voice. I usually go to these things because it’s fun to sing along… from the audience.

My plumbob was a bit of a failure, though, because I made two mistakes: 1) I used a narrow headband and 2) I neglected to buy wire from the hardware, opting instead to make do with what I had at home.

Sam as Belle (her boyfriend, Joaqui, went as Gaston).

My plumbob was wobbly so I couldn’t wear it throughout the night. It also didn’t float above my head like a proper plumbob should. Before the party, I thought I could make it work by taping up the base except we didn’t have any clear tape.

For some reason, I also forgot I was a blonde and that packaging tape would somehow blend in with my hair (more so than the metal fasteners).

Oh well. It was a super smart (heh) and cheap costume (a pack of neon paper is 24PHP but I still spent 80PHP cos I bought potato chips and a Christmas tree topper). I’m considering making it my back-up costume for next year, but using an actual plumbob template.
