Hercules is my favorite Disney movie (doesn't hurt that her nickname is also Meg...), so I was thrilled when my hubby agreed to the couples costume this year Smiley  Unfortunately things did not exactly as planned, so the Hercules costume is not home-made, so I am only submitting the Megara costume for the contest:

I drafted a pattern from scratch (in addition to some draping on my dress form) to get the base of the dress in the shape I wanted, and then added the two sashes before sewing in the side zipper.  I made the gold "coins" from Fimo clay, as well as a Barrette for the hair.  I used interfacing in the lower sash to make it stand out from the hip like the cartoon Smiley  I ordered a wig online and styled it back with a gold barrette to get the extra fullness/curliness that Megara has.
Unfortunately, Halloween was more focused on my cute neice, so we only got a few pictures, but will try to add more before Sunday Smiley  One more of us together, but only mine is home-made:
