Every year, each of us go through ideas of what we should dress up as, and often times end up spending a lot of money on last-minute costumes.
BUT THERE IS NO NEED!
How about creating a costume that is inexpensive, and most of all.. unique?
Spent $15 CDN at Wal-mart :
-1 metre green fabric
-1 metre white-shimmery tulle fabric
-1.5 metres of dark green stretchy ribbon
Those are the basics..
I basically wrapped the fabric around my body to whatever style I wanted, then tied them.
(you can also safety-pin them in place)
Then if you want to add some funk, you can buy some butterflies and glitter at the craft stores to attach to your dress and hair.
- Add some gold jewlery
- Navy Hat
- White gloves
This is the easiest to do, as I am sure most of us have these:
- White blouse
- Short skirt
- High knee socks
I say dressing up shouldn't leave a hole in your pocket!
Why not swap costumes with your friends?
This year, my dear friend Carla wore Stefanos' last year's costume,
Stefanos wore Greg's,
and Greg wore Stefanos' wig!
Happy costume makin'!
