I started with this on august (yeah, I'm obsessed with halloween)
I first made the skirt out of an old _*I dont know how to say it in english. it's white, and like an extra-long white shirt you wear on top of you clothes in chemistry*_ + scraps of fabric, and dyed it with tea and other..substances (aka coffee, ink, etc. . .)
Then I started working on my bf's costume (which is a pirate one, too. I'll post some pics of him in it when I get them).
I grabbed some old pants he had, ripped and stained them. I also cut them so that they are knee-length now. I grabbed an old shirt and ripped the neckline, bottom and cuffs. I stained it too.
I bought a floor-length fake leather jacket for 6 bucks, and used that to make a corset (I made the pattern, too). Oh.. and my bf bought some second hand boots for 4 bucks.

Now I'm making a pirate hat, using last year Threadbanger's Halloweeny Wednesdays' Pirate Costume tutorial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvopk72Bx3Y
+ an eyepatch + MAYBE a tiny pirate hat for me
Oh, and I had most of the acsesories (belts, necklaces, pearls, amulets...) You'll see them afterwards. The only thing we bought was my red sash thingy (6 bucks) and a brown/orange-y one for him).
I'll post more pics as soon as I take them...!
