|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
This Ancient Roman dress is a mix between historical accuracy and costuming ease. I made this costume from basic cotton cloth, yarn, buttons, beads, and a pashmina. Heavier and/or more expensive cloth can be used for better drapery, and using pins at the shoulders instead of tying buttons would look better and be more realistic. Overall this project cost approximately $15.
