Hello Smiley
Here is the costume I made with my mom for my little sister this year.
The costume is 100% made from reused / recycled clothes.
The base of the costume (the dress) is an old tinkerbell costume one of my other sister wore about 12 years ago.
The top is made from an old orange tshirt we cut at the bottom.
The dark green parts of the costume have been cut from an old coat we found accidentally in the recycling center (there is a department in the recycling center where you can give / take items who can still be usefull)
The pumpkin is also made from another old clothe we cut and sewed on the tshirt.
Finally the belt is a headband on which we attached some colored beads.

At the end she really loved her costume  Smiley

She looks adorable!  Great upcycling job on the old costume.  I would definitely have given her extra candy.
