So in case you’ve been sitting around wondering what my kitchen counter top looks like right now… TADA:
It’s almost Halloween, and while i’m usually the throw a costume together the night before kind of girl, this year i’ve decided to put a little more effort into my ensemble.
I have an hand-me-down prom dress that I never wore ( light blue sequined material in the left corner), and i’ve decided to turn it in to what I hope will be a very classy, blue mermaid gown that I can wear this year.
I’m trying to preserve as much of the dress as possible, so i’m having to be creative. I took out the layer of tool under it, but other than that I don’t want to alter the dress further.
bye bye scratchy tool!
1. take out tool (done!)
2. Create attachable bottom piece to make the dress more of a mermaid style.
3. Cut, paint, and embellish plain white t-shirt that will cover top half of dress.
I’m using this picture of Kim’s Halloween costume as my inspiration. I like that way that she was a mermaid, but without showing any stomach.
A run down of my materials:
– prom dress
– white t-shirt
– random sheer fabric
– Mardi Gras beads
– and pretty much anything else I can find around the house
The next step i’m going to do is to cut and paint the shirt! Wish me luck. I’ll be keeping everyone updated on here.
