Can’t beat this cult classic! Grab a stuffed animal (preferably a puppy) to complete your look with a Toto (but the cat in the picture above seems to be doing a pretty bang up job!)

I don’t know if I’m committed enough for a gold body leotard, but I think you could get the same effect with just a star crown and streamers.
