So I got it and…
Oh Thrill! At least I'll be getting a good upper-body work-out.
I’ve decided that I’m only going to have the girls of OZ done by Saturday. The men folk will have to wait. Plus the pint-sized princesses are super thrilled about the whole thing and the teenagers are ho-hum. But I thought I’d give you a sneak peak on some of my finds. These are strictly before pictures, but I’m ubber excited because I totally think I can come up with all the costumes and still be under my $100 goal.
The future Dorothy started out as a full-sized duvet comforter cover $4.99 and the Ruby Slippers $1.99 both from Value Village. (Total $6.98)
Glenda was 3.99 in fabric dye (craft store). I don’t count the muslin because I already had it lying around the house. So anything I already have on hand I’m not adding to the total. Glenda’s hat will cost the most because of the sparkle paint $3.98 (craft store) and two bendable cutting boards $1 (Dollar-tree). (Total so far $8.96) I don’t know whether or not I’m going to get netting for the top layer or not?
My Munchkin started out life as a sheet $2.99 and a large woman’s hot pink (even though it looks red in the photo) shirt $2.49 (both thrift store). And slippers $1 (Dollar-tree). Around the house I had everything I needed for her apron, bonnet and puffy shirt. (Total $6.48)
The Wicked Witch – sorry no pictures. Shirt & Skirt and a black sheet all from the thrift store $7.99. O.K. here is my one splurge. Hauntingly cute black pumps $4.98 (70% off) from Fred Meyer. I figure since the Wicked Witch of the East had those darling ruby slippers her sister from the West might have had good taste in shoes too, right? (Total $12.97)
So for half our herd the cost so far for costumes is $35.39.
You'll have to tune back in Saturday for our Halloween blog party to see the after pictures.
