The Saturday before Halloween, our ward threw a little dance party that was held in the Wilk on campus. My roommates and I took pictures beforehand at our house (except for Kelsey who was doing other stuff before. Kels was a grandma with her bf--now fiance!!--Scott who was a grandpa. I was a flapper girl, Heidi was Amelia Earheart, Katie was a zebra, Meghan was a cheetah, Talya was a boy scout, and Carrie went as herself. ;) Oh and since I do face painting I painted Katie's and Meghan's faces--they looked great!
I made a lot of my costume. I found this gold dress at H&M for $7 (score!) and when I got it, it had a high-low hem and it was also sleeveless. So I cut off the bottom to make it all at knee length and then used the extra fabric to put sleeves on. I had some white fabric that I sewed on as a sash and then put elastic through to give it a drop-waist.
My favorite part, however, was my head piece. I made this all myself. I got some really pretty ribbon from joanns as well as the pearl strings, the feathers, and the applique and basically just glue gunned it all on. I looked for photos from the internet for inspiration, but I am super please with how it turned out! Oh and for the hairstyle, since I have fairly long hair, I curled it all into super tight ringlets and then pinned it up into a kind of of side bun. Basically I just love how my costume turned out. This was definitely one of my favorite Halloween costumes ever. :)
