The Nile: It's not just a creek in Colorado

This year for Halloween I was going to be Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. But then the Colorado floods happened.

I lost my apartment, and a good number of belongings. After a month of being a refugee, I'm finally moving into a new place. THE COSTUME WAS SPARED. This, I feel, is a sign.
So now for Halloween I'm going to be Cleopatra, Queen of BOULDER CREEK. Please help me make this dream (nightmare?) come true.
I have a long golden/sand colored Egyptian-ish dress and bright blue (mud-spattered) wading boots. I plan to fashion some sort of headdress/crown incorporating a tiny toy Subaru. (Hey, it's Boulder.) A consort/FEMA inspector date is not out of the question.
Please help me figure out how to incorporate Boulderish and "flood" elements into the dress and into the costume. Needless to say, I don't have an enormous amount of time and/or resources. Thanks, MeFi!
