I recently worked on a production of The Wizard of Oz, and after much to do of what to do about Glinda's dress I made this from a $20 bridesmaid dress I found at Goodwill.  Glinda had to be in a pink dress, sparkly and bubbles if possible and with a budget of nothing!  I was able to make this gown for $50 total.



There's some detailing you can't see, I embroidered scrolls in iridescent thread along the pink on the skirt. The iridescent fabric shimmered in green which was very Oz-zy and I thought a great touch.  It seemed to fit well.  A local blogger featured it as his cover pic for the show's review.  Smiley

(ooh, and proud parent moment, that's my mushroom kid up there! I did the lollipop guild's overalls too, our of an old Amtrak blanket from Goodwill.)

Thank you so much for getting this post to where it needed to be.  I have looked around much more now and I think I have a good handle on where to put things.  *sorry about just posting willy nilly*  Smiley

And thank you for getting the pic in the post!  I do have a lot of costume work, and know I know were to post, so thank you.

I work a lot with community theater, and usually my budget it like $YEAH RIGHT     But, we are a creative bunch and just make things work.  This production of WOO was SUPER tight and I was stage manager.  I ended up doing costumes that no one else could or would touch.  And of course anything with my kids, because I just happen to be very persnickety like that.
