I've wanted to dress up as Violet Baudelaire from Series of Unfortunate Events for a couple of years now. I finally did it! Or rather, I should say that my wonderful mother did it for me. I want to learn to sew so badly!
Anyway, I was getting discouraged about my costume because it was the night before Halloween. Then I remembered that I had a prom dress in the closet that I never even wore that had a fitted bodice and the right color.
Mom added sleeves and an organza layer on the skirt. Then I just bought the fishnet top, the tights (that I adore) and the boots (from Goodwill !). And as an added bonus, my mom just happened to have a necklace that looked like an eye! Fans of the Series will understand the significance of the eye. It may not look exactly like Violet's dress from the movie, but I must say I like my version. I was a rather morose Violet (which is a good thing.)

Boots like that from the Goodwill!  What a find!  Beautiful costume, and a great way to make one last minute.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in eat with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

Thank your mother madly, for whipping that up! Unfortunately in Germany Halloween is still not really polpular, but since my name is Violet, I would also like to costumize like her or you in that case!
You look ghoulish!
