I wrote a post saying that I wanted to be Cleopatra for Halloween and some of you showed interest. I got some awesome encouragements and suggestions. Thank you!! :-). I also convinced my Hubbie to be Julius Caesar :-P
I used the following pics as my inspirations for my own costumes.
I found this old white beach cover up in my closet. I was about to cut the sleeves of some white t-shirt for the top part…
…and this white knit top turned up :-)
For Hubbie’s costume, I used 2 extra large T shirts. These I also already have on hands.
I also searched my stash and found this fabric. My mother in law brought it to me at some point in the past. It’s some kind of upholstery fabric and it has some gold under tone. I would love for it to have more gold but I will make use of what I already have.
I took Allie’s advice and went to the Dollar Store and DII store to get a few things. I was actually disappointed as I couldn’t find much, besides these:
- Some gold Christmas ribbon - 99 cents each
- Gold curtain tieback - $1.99
- 1 panel of curtain - $3.99
- More Christmas decorations :) - 99 cents each
Will show ya how things turn out next …
