I had planned on making all of our costumes, but my mom found a Tinkerbell costume for $1 at a garage sale for Maejae, and I found a Cinderella costume at Big Lots for $10 for Natalie. Those were cheaper than it would have been for me to make their costumes, so we went with it.
Along with that, came mine and Nathan’s costumes. Natalie decided that I would be Snow White (something I have wanted to be since I became a mother 3 years ago - because Snow White is my favorite Disney Movie), and Nathan was going to be Cinderella’s Prince Charming. Now – adult costumes are EXPENSIVE! So, I decided to make ours.
I took a trip to Goodwill and JoAnn’s. This is what I came up with:
This is a old yellow graduation gown I got for $2.50, and a blue sequined shirt I got for $1.50. I got both of these at Goodwill. Then, I bought a scrap of red sequined fabric for $1.25 and some blue scraps for $1.00. I had great ideas for these pieces, and at only $6.25, I knew it would eventually become the perfect Snow White costume.
This is Nathan’s costume. We had an old white church shirt that was a tad too small for Nathan’s neck, and had a stain on the pocket. We used a pair of his slacks for the pants and I made removable side strips for them. Then, I bought the blue fabric for $5.00 and the gold trimmings for $4.50. So, all in all – Nathan’s costume would cost $9.50 . . . not too shabby for Prince Charming!
The results . . . Amazing!
