Hello everyone!

This is a costume I made for my 21th birthday. I threw a Disney themed party, and it was awesome!

I just used an old little black dress, cut out all these feather-shaped scraps and sewed it all together. I also made the mask out of felt scraps, and the wings out of an old bear costume.

Tell me what you think!

I rather love it actually. Though I think I'd wear it out as a real dress and not just a costume, ha ha.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

This, I love... It's so typical of craftster that we think nothing of just happening to have an old bear costume lying around.
Does the dress have the feather scraps in back too? It's super cute, and as craftylittlemonkey says, I would totally wear it in real life too.
In other news, I love your hair.
