I love coming up with fun and retro costume ideas. Like Carmen Sandiego, or a Solar system. I’ve always wanted to come up with a punny costume and with the help of my Cricut it’s easy to take a small idea and make it bright.

I’m so pleased with how this Bright Idea shirt turned out, and that it can be a costume, but I feel like it can be worn whenever. 

Do you like to dress up or are a person who likes a t-shirt costume?
