This homemade costume for girls entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Dyana, the 'Evil Queen' costume creator:
Every year my little girl absolutely has to be something beautiful for Halloween. Usually she is a disney princess and she almost decided on Jasmine, but This year we have been watching the tv show once upon a time and her absolute favorite character is the evil queen regina, so, obvioulsy this was a no brainer for us on what she could be for halloween and still be able to give her the beautiful ball gown look that she loves.
We layered 3 different materials, satin,a damask taffetta and velvet to make the dress. The satin was used for main skirt, the taffetta was used as an overlay ontop of the satin and for the top and the velvet was used for the puff part of the sleeves and We used lace for the arms that gave it an elegant look. We tore up an old prom dress for the under skirt and added string to the top to tie it up like a dress tomake it a full slip and to be sure this would be extra pouffy. Thank goodness she loves to play dress up with all the fittings she had! We used craft feathers, lots and lots of craft feathers, to attach to a stiff foam which was covered with the taffett to make her neck piece stand up and feathers that were hot glued onto a crown to make the head piece.. To top it off I dressed as snow white and her dad was of course prince charming! It was perfect. Everyone thought she looked gorgeous and kept bowing at her and calling her your majesty when she would go to a door to trick or treat. She had pictures taken of her and she loved every minute of being a queen. She was VERY happy!
