A couple of years ago, my cousin told my aunt that she wanted to go as a laundry basket, and they made it happen.  Upon hearing of the idea, this summer, I wanted to give it a try. 
It was fairly simple to do.  I cut a hole in the bottom of a laundry basket.  Luckily, my hips supported the basket on their own and I didn't need to make suspenders for it.  Then added old Halloween costume parts for the laundry.  After that, I added the socks and at one point a dryer sheet to it all (although I don't know where the dryer sheet went). 

For me, it was a great costume.  Easy to make and easy to wear.  The best part is that I could carry my camera and keys in the basket along with beverages later on.  Next time I would add an empty bottle of detergent...or maybe make a detergent bottle purse.

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

Haha!  No one ever knows where the dryer sheet goes do they?  Such a cute idea, I like that the basket is useful.  Maybe it will become a trend.

That's simply adorable. I'll have to remember that one for next year. My fiance could go as additional dirty laundry. His work shirts never look clean lol.

Yay finally done moving!
