This one actually WAS my costume! Hooray!
In case you haven't watched BATB in a while, Babette is the feather duster
This, unlike the first costume, I didn't completely make myself. I bought this huge princess cute bridesmaid dress, from a thrift store, then cut it apart, and turned it into a mermaid gown.
I basted a crinoline to the bottom, then glued almost 100 ostrich feathers to it!
I made the hat from scraps of the skirt, and the hand cuffs were made out of an old feather dusters feathers, and more skirt scraps. They button with Fleur De Lise buttons!
This thing was so much fun to walk in, you have no idea. It was kind of a pain getting up and down stairs, though.
In ACTION!!!! Look at me, with muh hair all did up.
And there's the Belle dress, on the girl who wore it in the show.
And this concludes my bragging o' the day.
