|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jennifer, the 'Cleopatra' costume creator:
This is my daughter Kylie. She wanted to be the Queen of the Nile.
This costume was pretty simple to make. It took me 7 hours to make it. I made the crown by purchasing a plastic tiara and then molded the cobra and baked it. I glued the snake on it and primed and painted it.
The dress was simple to see. The belt and the top collar piece took the most time.
I made the arm and wrist bands about of jewelry wire.
I bought the wig and cut it and added gold beads.
The sandals were primed and painted gold.
I don't use patterns, I just go by a dress she can currently wear.
