My Best friend and I love to dress in matching Costumes for all of our events, only i usually make them and she does the accessories or hand sewing on the detail.  One day she got a sewing machine and i told her i'd teach her how the make something and this is what we came up with:  

The shirt is a simple three piece halter that ties at the back and at the neck.  The skirt is a one piece square with a hole in the middle that an elastic waistband is sewn to.  

We stuffed Plastic bugs and mini snakes in our hair and fishnets and each had a big fake snake to wrap around our necks.  We also glued tons of sequins in patches to look like scales on our temples and bodies.

The Lizard Twins, were later repurposed as the "pirate eating lizard faeries"  For our annual pirates and faeries event.  

Here is us dancing:

Here's a pic of me tying a tutu onto one of the camp staff members (i think we even got him into a pair of fairy wings:

These are cute! And soon-to-be-fairy-man seems to be enjoying the addition of the tutu Tongue

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
