My no cost version of Emily. I made the wig from fabric scraps and yarn that I had in my stash. The veil and over skirt are from an old costume from 5 years ago, the dress was the one from my Hand fasting 4 years ago, the belt is just a strip of super wide elastic, the pearls were just a strand of seed beads that I noticed sitting in my sewing notions "junk" jar that I just grabbed before we left the house, and my daughter did my make up.
I did a last minute alteration job on the veil to gather it at the top and make a slit up the front (in its original form the fabric is supposed to cover the face). I was very surprised at how many people, especially little kids, immediately knew who I was trying to be. I had several children walk up and say "Hi, Emily!", including my own granddaughter who I had no idea who I was until I said "baby, it's me, Nana". I ended up having a lot of fun with this. 1st pic is my "sad bride" look, second is my inspiration, 3rd is a semi profile by an appropriate tree, and last is a full front shot. We did not notice the "happy to see ya" ghost until we were looking at the pictures later in the evening.

I saw your pre-post of the wig and I think it looks amazing. The costume all together is awesome.
