unicorns and rainbows halloween costume

Step 1
Cut the sleeves off of the T-shirt and cut a V-shape into the center front and the back of the collar.
 
TIP: To make sure the V-shape is symmetrical, fold the shirt in half, so that sleeves touch each other. Cut the collar and open the shirt to reveal a symmetrical cut.
Step 2
For all the rolls, cut strips of tulle that reach two times the distance from shoulder to calf. Use all the rolls of tulle, and keep the strips separated by color. 
Step 3
For each color, line up all the strips of tulle and find the middle point. 
Step 4
Take the pink, orange and half of the lime green strips gathers of tulle and attach them to one shoulder of the T-shirt with a white chenille stem at their middle point. Make sure to keep the colors blocked and in rainbow order, with green being closest to the center of the shirt. 
Step 5
Take the rest of the green, blue and purple strips and attach them by the center to the other shoulder of the shirt, as in Step 4. 
Step 6
Lay the strips in color blocks down the front and back of the shirt. Make the green strips meet in the middle to create a V-neck shaped dress. Secure all the strips by using rainbow ribbon to cinch at the waist of the shirt. 
Step 7
Cut lengths of batting about four inches wide. Gently pull it apart so that it begins to resemble a cloud. Make two clouds that are similar in size. 
Step 8
Adhere a cloud to each shoulder of the T-shirt, over the tulle, with small strips of fabric tape. 
Step 9
To create the cloud crown, make a circle with the natural stem wire that can fit around a head. Do not cut the wire. Mark off this circumference by taping it in place. 
Step 10
Wrap the wire around the circle four more times and then cut the wire from the roll with wire cutters.
 
TIP: Tape the wire together every few inches to help keep the shape.
Step 11
Bind and cover the natural wire with white chenille stems by tightly wrapping them around the circle. Use wire cutters to trim off any sharp edges. 
Step 12
Using the natural wire, create half of a hoop that arches over the top of the circle. Wrap each end around the side of the circle where it connects and cut it from the roll with wire cutters. 
Step 13
Reinforce and cover the arch with white chenille stems, as in Step 11. 
Step 14
Cut batting and create more clouds, as in Step 7. Hot glue them all around the circle and the half hoop. 
Step 15
Hot glue the unicorns to the crown.
 
TIP: To add extra stability, cut small lengths of white chenille stems, wrap them around the legs of the unicorns, and bind them to the crown. Cover these areas with clouds after.
Step 16
Grab one chenille stem the color of each roll of tulle from the brights pack. Shape them into a rainbow and secure them to the top of the half hoop by wrapping them in place under the clouds, and gluing.
