Hello Everyone! I made a leg lamp costume from A Christmas Story! I made a skirt with a yellow/cream color satin, and the batting/flame proof stuff that you use for ironing boards on the inside to make it stiff, then I edged the bottom with black beaded fringe. I even added an LED light to the inside that you could see in real life but it didnt show up on my pictures. Then,  I added Fish Net Stockings, and Black High Heels!
