Last March we had a fashion show at my school. Well our theme was Atlantis, so basicly I decided to create a bubble (it orginally wasnt going to be that big but thats how it turned out) The top part is made from an old shirt, plastic sea shells broken up by a hammer, felt and for the halter part rope.  The bottom is made from cardboard and a metal waist band thing, and covered in felt, some sea shells, and the sand part is an old towel.
**This was made sophomore year of high school so its nothing near perfect**
Top(almost finished):

All outfit together:

Another outfit picture showing how big it really is:

Bottom (carboard stage):

Bottom covered in blue felt(before the sand and orange coral:

Comments, critques, questions  are greatly appricated! Thanks

Thank you for the kind words it means a lot. Everything that it was made from we had around the house. The shells were fake and crushed in a bag with a hammer. It took quite a bit of time but it was worth it.  Smiley
