Oops, got this message too late to make it to the store, but a couple questions- Is it flowers or lace (it looks like lace in the pictures, that would be easy), and what is purple drank? I'm not sure that comes from the craft store...maybe the liquor store?Ooh! Peachy-colored fuzzy velveteen? Little Puffalump collar flowers? Purple drank for the judges?
I dropped in today to see about the "make your car a bunny" kit nose. It fits! I think it'd look fine in pink, but peach would be better. Unfortunately, I lack sewing skills, so it might just have to stay pink or get a peach spray paint job. It even has little whiskers coming out of the nose! (While cute, whiskers are not found on Puffalumps. Oh well.)
Also, the seatbelts now fit little coco-sized people!
Also, also: I have come to the conclusion that Puffalumps are disarmingly cute little creatures whose sole purpose in life is to be evil and make you oversleep. (My "short nap on this couch" is now "aw, dang it, I hope Freebirds is still open, man. I ain't goin' home in the pitch black again, either.")
Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas. Its main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine. Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.
I Absolutely LOVE the crossed carrots, it's brilliant! Maybe a little more detail on the "lump" so it is easy to recognize that it's the back of the puffalump.Heh, I don't think the lace collar is going on the car anywhere. It'd look too clunky and awkward, IMHO. Lace around the license plate would be cool, though.
As far as costumes goes, I have a few sets of bunny ears (some of which came with tails!) to wear around the pits. I keep trying to talk the crew guy into going full-Playboy Bunny on us, but sadly, I've had no luck.
I really love the 'lump-and-crossbo--, er, um, crosscarrots feel of that one.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
