On July 9th Chick-Fil-A is running a fantastically fun deal. Dress like a cow, get free food! Here’s how we made our costumes last year without spending a penny. 😉
At the end of a busy day, we suddenly remembered it was “Cow Appreciation Day” at Chick-Fil-A and scrambled to throw together costumes! We went through each other’s closets, shoved costume ideas at each other, and got everyone dressed up and there in time before the deal ended. 😉
(tip: don’t forget to take off your cow-nose paint before dropping by a grocery store… like I forgot to! lol *hides* )
A few of us decided to theme our costumes…
Secret Agent Cow is on the far left, looking buff and serious.
Rockstar Cow (me!) is half-hidden behind Pearl’s cow-ear… lol, but I think I played the sassy part well. 😉
Ballerina Cow is the shortest girly, happily holding a milkshake. ❤
Aaand Miss Cowbelle on the far right… the beauty pageant cow.
We got a lot of smiles/smirks from the employees and even a few comments and thumbs up from fellow cow-appreciaters! And we didn’t spend any money on this fun outing. 🙂
Secret Agent Cow
His shirt is actually a white trash bag, taped and taped and taped on, with black construction paper cow spots! Black jeans, t-shirt, sunglasses, and a radio with an earpiece to top off the look. He did a fantastic job with the stance and playing the part! xD
I borrowed black, full-length skinny jeans with holes in the knees from my older sister, paired them with a long white shirt with construction-paper cow spots pinned to it, and my green and black leather jacket. Tennies, lipstick, and a fedora finished my outfit. 😛 Mom randomly and brilliantly dabbed her finger in some black chalk-paint to give me a cow nose. It was perfect!
Hair in a tight bun, trash bag skirt w/ sharpy cow spots, leggings, flats, and a t-shirt&shrug transformed my littlest sister into a ballerina cow! ❤ Super easy, and all just from her closet or crafted from things around the house!
Beauty Pageant Cow
She put on a long formal dress from her closet and pinned her curly hair in a fancy updo with a tiara from a recent birthday party. A trash bag sash sporting her beauty pageant name written in cursive completed the look. She did amazing acting the role and doing a prissy wave and floating around like a princess! 😀
White trash bags are very useful for costume crafting, and black construction paper is perfect for cow ears and spots! Black paint or eyeliner for a cow nose, and it’s perfect! For Pearl’s shirt, she decided to paint black cow spots on an old white t-shirt she had around, and it turned out great!! Once it finally dried. 😉
Get creative and use the things you have! And YUM… enjoy the free Chick-Fil-A. 😉
Yo, did you enjoy this? Pin it!
