I have this costume from last year that I made to resemble elvira mistress of the dark.




I used an old velvet stretch dress, put a slit up the leg and cut the bottom in jagged triangle shapes.  I sewed some false sleeves that i put on kind of like a shirt without the body trunk part.  I got the wig at a store, I think value village, put on some heavy make up and some long fake nails.
