However, I have always come up with good creative, homemade costumes for my daughter. I never bought one from a store. Now that shes all grown up, I don't get to have that fun anymore. She will buy her costumes each Halloween and they include a lot less fabric than I would recommend.
Last year I played around and found something in my closet. I put it on long enough to get photo to share on Facebook just for the Halloween fun of it. I had put on a yellow raincoat, white socks and black shoes while holding a container of salt and umbrella. I was the Morton Salt girl. Pretty swell huh?
This year is different. I actually have somewhere to go this Halloween weekend which is mandatory to dress in a costume. Its a Halloween wedding. Yes A Halloween Wedding. Creepy huh? Way out of my comfort zone but me and the hubby have decided to attend. We have never in over 20 years went out wearing a costume! This could be fun.
I made a trip to the GoodWill thrift store. I love that place by the way.
I had intentions on dressing up like "Beetle Juice" but I could not find any black and white stripe pants or coat. So then my idea switched to dressing up like Peter Pan. I had brown leggings, and brown boots. All I had to find was a green tunic or short dress to cut up into this fantasy Disney Character. I even bought some felt to make a hat.
Then something else caught my eye that gave me a better idea. I will keep this one a secret until the reveal. I got all of the outfit I need at this GoodWill and It costed me all of $7.00. I'm going to have fun dressing like this character. Using my creativity, I will add the finishing touches. Though I am not going to tell you who ill be just yet, I will give you a hint.
Its a prop I made using an old "Juice" bottle, printed label and some paint. I will be carrying this around with me at the wedding and actually drink out of it while I'm there too.
Can you guess who I am? (comment below).
I will reveal it in my next post.
