Halloween costumes...I hate spending money on them. Sometimes it can't be avoided...like three years ago when we lived in St. Louis in a hotel for six months for my husband's job. I simply did not have the resources with me to make a costume. So, we headed to Wal-Mart in late October, hoping there would be at least one costume that worked and that wouldn't break the bank. We ended up with an angel costume and a Darth Vader one.
Bought a roll of white ribbon with a gold Greek key pattern on it, criss-crossed it and tied it at the waist. The sleeves were drawn up with a different gold ribbon that I had on hand. I looped up the Greek key ribbon in the sleeve ribbons to keep in place. We added a garland of greenery around her head and some gold sandals to complete the transformation from angel to goddess. By the way, look at the length of the snow angel's costume compared to that of the goddess. Can this be the same little girl? (sniff, sniff) They do grow fast, don't they? I'd love to hear Halloween costumes have you re-fashioned? I need ideas for this year ;-)
