Wicked Witch of the East Costume
Just before the house landed....
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Mary, the 'Wicked Witch of the East' costume creator:
My 15 month old daughter, Mara, is dressed as the Wicked Witch of the East - complete with ruby slippers and a homemade dress and cape. (She wouldn't keep the hat on or hold onto the broom.) I planned on accompanying her as Glinda, but I'm pregnant and getting the dress measurements right was becoming stressful. I decided that if I was going to look like a house, I might as well actually look like a house! Hence the idea of dressing as Dorothy Gale's house was born. As I wanted to make the costume construction pregnancy safe, the house is made entirely of cardboard and duct tape in 3 different colors.
