Black Swan Costume

 DIY Creative Halloween Costumes

What you will need: DIY Creative Halloween Costumes

•Black Tutu (I found this at a local dance store for $23, but you can buy similar ones at Halloween stores)
•Bustier/leotard/slip
•Light pink tights (Wal-mart $4.50)
•I suggest ballet slippers over pointed shoes. They are much more comfortable and will not kill your feet.(The local dance store had them on sale for $5!)
•Pink ribbon (Wal-Mart $3.79)
•Tiara (Jo-Ann fabric $1.99)
•Rhinestones (Michael’s sells the multi pack for $2.99, but check your closet for old clothes with larger stones you can use)
•Black Feathers (Michael’s has many options. I choose the feather half circle and pack of loose feathers)
•Black feather boa ribbon
•Black tulle spool ( Jo-Ann fabric $ 2.99)
•Clothing glue

About Elizabeth

Instead of about me... how about why this blog exists? You know that feeling you get when you a package arrives at your door, and you’re like “Who’s this from?” or “Where did THIS come from?!” Aye. That’s mostly what you will get with this blog. Just the on-goings and discoveries of crazy ol’ me (and friends, I can’t take all the credit.) Basically, things you might wanna try if you like the random. Things you DON’T wanna try. And just those….things. And since I like to share...this blog was born! And…if YOU discover anything that you think I would want to try…you better post it! (This is to be taken in a non-threatening way if it is said out loud :) )
