You may recall that the plan was to dress up as this fine lady for Halloween 2011 (Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter, for those unfamiliar):
Well, I did! Here's how it all came together:
corset: I made it
shoes: from the depths of my mom's closet
wand: leftover from Halloween last year
All told, the entire look set me back $4. I had to buy the felt and ribbon to make the corset, but everything else I already had--which is kind of ridiculous. Who knew I dressed like a crazy ex-con whose sole agenda is to kill that mudblood Harry Potter?
Did you dress up this year? What were you? Anybody else skip the store and make your own? Feel free to link up to any posts or pictures in the comments--I want to see!
