My (successful!!) goal was to make this costume for less than $20.



The finished product!  The beanie and neckerchief were remnants of a pair of pants I used to make the shorts.  Sock tassels were made with leftover felt.  The fanny pack was surprisingly useful.  We really need to bring those back!



Salvation Army long-sleeve shirt and pants became short-sleeve shirt and shorts.



These are the patches that went on the back of the sash--felt and puffy paint.  What a flashback!



The front of the sash, which I made using remnants from the pants-turned-shorts.

You made my day by catching the Lebowski reference! Only one person that night noticed that there is a toe with green nail polish on the patch. "His girlfriend gave up her toe! She thought we'd be getting a million dollars. Iss not fair." "Fair?! Who's the &*%$ing nihilist here? What are you, a bunch of &*%$ing crybabies?"
