Cowardly Lioness (Wizard of Oz)
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nancy, the 'Cowardly Lioness' costume creator:
I am the wearer of the Lioness costume. I made a bodysuit (and the ears and tail) out of beige stretch velvet, and embellished it with gold sequins. Made an elizabethan style corset with flocked silk shantung and black and gold braid and black sequins... The accessories (arm warmers, leg warmers, and skirt) are made of fake fur... I did buy the wig but it wasn't big enough so sewed in some extra curly extensions to make it super big and full to make an over the top lion's mane.
