GI Joes & GI Hoes

To celebrate a friends birthday last week, we all headed out wearing costumes themed GI Joes & GI Hoes. I seem to be on a bit of a roll creating my own themed costumes lately -  and I'm feeling pretty pleased with this one too!
 Trying my best to look all mean and like an army woman - but it was pitch black when the photo was taken so I had no idea where I was looking!
 This is actually Tony being a ninja!
 The birthday boy and I!
 Being a gangster.... hahaha!
Happy Birthday Nev! ♥

I DIY'd my little camo tee from an XL mens tee! Here's how I did it:
I cut it up into sections, as shown in the photo - I used the two pointy bits at the front to tie a knot which brought the tee in tight, I then tucked this knot inside to hide it. At the back the pointy bits were wrapped inside the arm holes and then tied together and tucked in to bring the tee in at the back. I used parts of the cut-offs to make a headband and a wrist-tie. There was even enough material left over for some of Erikas friends to make an outfit from! ♥

  12. Hi Rachael,

    A very creative costume. We envy you as Joan and I are not good at creative DIY stuff.
    Our Mother is a great Seamstress. She has made special dresses for several shops around town....but alas her talent was not passed on to us. But we are thankful we were gifted with mom and dads music talent.
    I love your costume and the lovely pictures of you. Loving this post!!!!!
    Love,Joann
