Bag O' Leaves
|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Bree, the 'Bag O' Leaves' costume creator:
My daughter Claire is wearing the costume. She came up with the idea, and I made it come to be. When she told me she wanted to be a bag of leaves, I asked her if she wanted a black plastic bag or a brown paper bag. She replied that she wanted a brown paper bag, "like Daddy uses." So, I cut a bag down to size, reinforced the edges with metallic gold duct tape, and added shoulder straps made out of duct tape for easy on and off, and then used sticky back velcro to attach fabric leaves. I used velcro so leaves could be moved around if they were bothering her or were scratchy on her skin. She also is wearing a clip with a leaf on it in her hair. Total cost for the costume was approximately ten dollars.
