This was the easiest costume I’ve ever done. I was inspired by this post I found on Pinterest. Going to add her to my blog watch list for sure. Isn’t that cape cool? I could totally do that. Maybe next year. Back to the costume…I had everything but the hat ($3 from The Dollar Store). Everyone has a black dress of some kind, don’t they? I had two to choose from. I chose this sweater dress with leather detail (Chaps, Kohl’s, no longer available), black patent skinny belt (Target), black ruffle wrap (old), green tights (Merona, Target), black suede shoes (I got mine at DSW last year, but these are very similar). Done. So simple.
The only notes I’d make to this is that the wrap was long, so I tucked the ends into the back of my belt to make it look more cape-like and the hat brim is so flat it looked silly when you put it on. By bending the brim in half, it looked MUCH better. I bent it front to back so the curves in the wire were on the sides.
