This homemade costume for women entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Erin, the 'Hageshi - Dragon Girl' costume creator:

This costume is made of nearly 100% recycled materials. It was made with the idea the half breeds(half human/half animal) exist in the real world, and what they might look like. The body of the dress was a used black long dress cut to be shorter, long arms cut off. the guitar pics on the dress were hand-sewn to create a dragon scale and are made from recycled pvc, old gift cards, etc. PVC is one of the hardest materials to recycle which inspired this costume. The gloves are made with sleeves from a used long sleeve shirt and more guitar picks, hand sewn. the necklace, earrings, and purse strap are made from recycled computer parts. The frame of the purse is made from used starbucks cards i collected and are hand-punched and hand-sewed. used construction paper makes the flames. The horns are made from tin foil, glue, and spray paint.the spine is made from more guitar picks, the ribs are safety pins, and the tail is more used starbucks cards and colorful duct tape for the spine. neon green fishnets have been cut up and cover my shoes for my dragon feet with a few duct tape spikes on each toe. I did my own dragon makeup too! I am very proud of this costume, it took a month and a half to make;mostly punching and sewing all the guitar picks! Total cost for materials to make this costume $89.00
