Last month, a good friend of mine celebrated her 25th birthday with a fancy dress party. Weeks of deciding, I just couldn't figure out what to go as. To share with you a little secret, I came across these beautiful mint green high heeled shoes one day and needed a legitimate excuse to make that purchase. So, there's the obvious, 'Statue of Liberty' just had to be my costume.
As shown in the picture, my whole costume was handmade:
- The Gown - a plain mint green double sized bedsheet (topped with a waistbelt to hold the sides together).
- Torch - mint green cardboard and yellow tissue paper for the flame.
- Crown - a simple headband with the spokes made from cardboard.
- The Book (which I didn't have) - can simply be covered with cardboard also.
