For my birthday, my sister gave me a pair of eye stalks that she got from Ikea. I’ve since purchased a second pair – since you can never have enough eye stalks.
These raise the question of …what costume can I make with eye stalks?
One problem with them is that they look like antennae, rather than eyes. And I fear that as long as my own eyes are visible, they will “read” as antennae. Nevertheless, I’ve decided I need to make a costume that features eye stalks.
Only two possible beings come to mind that sport eye stalks – aliens and snails. I suppose slugs do, also, but trying to get a costume that really looks like a slug is just too much of a challenge even for me. So I’ve settled on making a snail costume.
