    Default Need American Icon Ideas

    DH and I have been invited to a party where we need to dress up like an American Icon. Some of the suggestions were Bill and Hillary Clinton or Macaroni and Cheese. Something that screams "AMERICA!" I need ideas. Of course, we have little or no money to spend.

    Thanks!

    Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty? Hamburger and Hot Dog? LOL That's all I could come up with. Sounds like a fun party to attend. Can you sew? If so, I would imagine you could make some costumes pretty cheap.

    That is an awesome idea!
    If you don't know anyone to borrow cammies from you could try EBay or check out a local Army Surplus store. You can find uniforms there cheap!

    Janis Joplin! That's what I'm going as. I already have the clothes and jewelry and the right color/texture hair. Now all I need are the little round glasses, I'm heading to the dollar store.

    A "flower child" from the 60's. You can wear tie-dye shirts and old bell bottom jeans.

    We had so much fun last night. There were some really good costumes. I ended up going as Janis Joplin, which, honestly just wasn't much of a stretch for me. I could wear my regular clothes. I bought little round glasses and frizzed up my hair, and wore a bunch of bead necklaces.

    The party was great, I even got a henna tattoo.
