Hello All!
Well, My Costume this year was inspired be my a story my mama told me about her and her sisters growing up, and having paper dolls, and fashioning up clothes out of paper for their Little Card board cut outs....
Without Further ado...

ME... As a PAPER dolly... Wink Full Shot!



Close up... You can REALLY see the little tags I made to "Fold over myself... All out of Poster board... SOOO FUN!


Tee hee... Outside, Strutting my Stuff, and Showing off my Accessory, (My Paper Purse Wink )



And, Just in Case you were Wondering, I know my mama was Wink , Usually paper doll stand up's are in their Unders... So, I had an old Dress slip, and a t-shirt with a printed Lace Corset on it (Work Friendly), and add some Argyle Tights and Ballet Flats, and I was Good to GO!



My Hair was all in Ringlets, and HAD to be topped off with a Big red SHINY bow, Fake Dolly Eyelashes, and Even a  Paper Ruffle for the bottom of the skirt! I had no problem walking around in it all day Smiley

Thank you for looking, and Happy Voting!!!!

LOL very creative!
I like how you took the theme right to the undergarments like a proper paper dolly.
