Halloween Costume

I completed most of my Halloween costume today.  The only thing I purchased was the skirt at goodwill for 7$, everything else I had in my stash, including the hat making supplies.  The skirt was a long vintage skirt that I sewed up to make it poofy.  The white shirt was a mens button up that I made into a off the shoulder top, I am going to tea dye it as well.  I am also wearing one of my Bustle Belts, which is my invention.  To watch a tutorial of how to make most of the things I am wearing see the previous post.  Don't forget you can click on the photos to see more details.  When I dress up on Halloween I will be wearing cool tights as well as make up, this is just a couple quick shots.

I think it looks great! And I'm curious to see some pictures of the ouitfit 'in action' with the make up and such then :)

I'm going to a Halloween party where the theme is bad taste and to dress up ugly, I hate themes like that! I think I'm just going to dress uop like one of the "tabloid paper wannabe celebrity sluts" so that I can at least wear heels and lipstick, hih.

That's a great Halloween costume! How clever you are. I still have to make mine and I'm lacking the motivation to do so at the moment.
