In Mrs. J's words:
The wagon is made out of two hula hoops sewn into a white sheet (The sheet was previously a ghost, I just washed the face and resewed the eyes shut, I'm sure lots of wagons had patches!)
Holes were drilled in the old wagon, two on each corner, and the hula hoops were wire tied to the wagon. A quilt was thrown in the bottom. We did paint the wagon brown since it was old and rusty anyway. We wire tired the horse (it is currently being used as a part of a headless horseman get-up) to the wagon handle. The pioneer clothes were in our dress-up box, we had a Laura Ingalls book report. So it was a fast way to parade through a sesquentenial celebration!
Parades are the BEST! Ü

If you don't have the time or the inclination to MAKE a costume for an event like a School Play or a Parade. If you've thought about it, but your heart, for whatever reason, JUST isn't in it... You can probably purchase a costume of the type you were planning to make...and maybe even for about the same as you might spend on the materials to MAKE a costume. On the other hand, you may look around and spot a Costume that changes your Costume plans completely.
