Ok, so while reading through some of the Halloween posts it reminded me of my 6th grade Halloween costume. I was Marie Antoinette. Ha, ya i know seems a little old for a 6th grader, but it was so clever. i went to a wedding dress store in town and the lady there was nice enough to let me look in the attic of the store to see if anything was up to par. i ended up finding a super old wedding dress that they gave me for 40 dollars. my mom and i altered it to fit me and made it a little more renaissance-y. I also bought a super awesome wig to go with it. My personal favorite part of the costume was this fake bloody gash that we put on my neck. it looked pretty real. I wasn't allowed to wear the blood to school, sadly, so i got a cake box and wrote "Let them eat cake" on it and walked around with that. it received the same amount of attention, so i was content.
anyways, after all that rambling, here's the picture i found.
[excuse the glare--i have yet to buy a scanner]
the mask and cape weren't part of the costume--i actually have no idea why i am wearing that.
i also wish i could reuse the costume for this upcoming halloween, but the costume is WAY to fussy to wear in highschool. plus, after the movie Marie Antoinette came out, it just doesnt seem as original anymore.
anyways, just thought i'd share! thanks!
