So, how do we make a punk rock princess? I'm not quite sure how we do it. I'm just thrilled that Pookie didn't want to be a cat, or a fairy ... again.
So, I figure we'll start with this old slip from one of my formals back in the day.
Then, we'll add a little of this. Isn't that cute? We found it at Goodwill for less than $1.
then maybe a splash of this gauze stuff, which we grabbed at the Dollar Tree where everything's $1. I love that store lol. The gauze was from the little "fairy skirt" costumes they had. Three of them for $3. We've since decided we probably won't use that black shirt, which we dug out of the recessess of my closet.
then we have some pink hair extensions ($1) which I'm not sure we're going to use now that I've had another thought. Ohhh and the glow-sticks ($1). I have plans for those glow-sticks.
Ya know, this inundation of thoughts is giving me a little headache, right behind my eyes. Or it could be my sinuses rebelling against the drastic weather changes. I'm blaming Halloween though.
then, we have these lovely clunky looking boots. They were the best I could do on short notice. I have a request in Freecycle for some combat boots, but just in case, we found these at Goodwill for $3.
and then we'll top it off with this little make-up kit ($3) that looks kinda punky and figure out something to do with the little party favor tiara combs ($1).
I'm planning to spend another $6 for some temporary hair dye, so that will bring our grand total to $19 for this costume. By far, the cheapest one we've ever had ;)
Stay tuned, I'll post our progress as we go ;)
