|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
I am wearing the Black Swan costume - I made the tutu using black tulle that I cut into strips and knotted onto a piece of elastic. I used a corset that I already preowned and hand sewn feathers on. For the crown I used a cheap kids tiara and hand painted it with acrylic paint in a black sparkle color. Makeup was done by my friend with eyeliner and white face paint.
White swan was worn my my friend Tanisha. I made the tutu the same as the black swan. I cut up a white boa and glued it to a white corset I already owned. I used a silver patch I had and sewed that to the left breast. I also cut the boa and glued that to the sides of a white plain headband and had her wear it backwards.
