|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
My mother and great grandmother had made my Halloween costumes together, every year, for ten years. However, after my great grandmother passed away, it was up to my mother to create my costume. She brought back one of my favorite costumes that she and my great grandmother had made ten years earlier: my clown costume. She took an old plaid dress and an old orange shirt, which she cut up and sewed onto the dress as patches. Then, she took a sequined novelty hat and created an artificial flower, which she sewed to the hat. Lastly, she added my favorite part, pom poms that she made from yarn to my buttons and shoes. My great grandmother would have been proud.
