##Putting together your “Ho Ho Ho” / Holiday Hooker Costume##

Step 1: Head to your local craft store and pick up a few items. You can cheaply pick up some fabric trim. For this costume, you will need white faux fur trim (1 yard should do it); a yard of sequin trim (in your choice of color, although red or green would work best with this); red and green felt for cutting out “Ho Ho Ho” letters OR red and green Puffy Paint to write it on the skirt.

Step 2: Once you have all of your fabric trim, it’s time to doctor up your outfit. Take your short skirt and add a trim of faux white fur to the hemline. Sew it on or use fabric glue.

Step 3: To make the “Ho Ho Ho” design on your skirt, take either your felt and cut out letters, adhering them to the skirt with fabric glue or needle and thread… OR take a much easier route and draw/write on the letters with Puffy Paint in holiday colors.

Step 4: Put on your skirt and your hooker top, something inappropriate and trashy like a lace-up bustier in either red or green, or whatever suits your fancy.

Step 5: Pull on a pair of festive Holiday thigh highs in either red, green, candy cane stripe or anything that may work for your own idea. Red fishnets also add a nice touch!

Step 6: Pull on your holiday garter and stash a few dollar bills into it. Get that cash flow rolling!!

Step 7: Put on some gaudy makeup. Go with some green or red glitter eye makeup and ruby red lips. The gaudier the better! Classy is NOT the aim here!

Step 8: Put on a Santa hat, possibly trimmed with sequins from the craft store.

Step 9: You can add your own little touches, like jingle bell earrings or other jewelry. Find your Christmas Pimp and make a break for the mistletoe to grab some cash for kisses!
