So I had this neat idea to be a Nature Fairy for Halloween. Kind of a mix of Mother Nature, a hippie, and of course fairy wings and a wand. I'm thinking tea dye tan (like unbleached muslin) and green for colors of the dress (or skirt and shirt) wings made using ThreadBanger's tutorial, and a fancied up stick from my yard as a wand. I am not planning any shoes, as I normally go barefoot everywhere anyway, and I think that would fit in with the costume theme. Fake plants and flowers, something on my head (a wreath crown?)
Any ideas? Got a dress/shirt/shirt idea that would be perfect? Is there anything that I HAVE to make sure to include?

There's a children's pirate costume tutorial for a very simple smock/dress that would be super easy and appropriate if you're going for more playful/earthy as opposed to, uh... chic I guess (I've seen some REALLY fancy fairy costumes O.o).

With a few extra embellishments, I think it could be super cute on a grown-up Cheesy

OOoooo perfect! Yes, I am looking for the more earthy style. Thanks for showing me that, I probably would have never looked at it! LOL

I love the wreath crown idea. You could probably buy all those plastic animals at a dollar store and then secure them in wire and connect it to a headband. Or, if you're more into the 'earthy' feel, the same goes for flowers. I know the flowers I buy at my local dollar store enables you to pop it off of the stem, and then it has a hole in the bottom which is perfect for shoving wire through. If you do that, then you could probably connect a bunch together and make both a bracelet and a crown.

Here's a website that teaches you how to make corsages. You could change the pattern up a bit and use whatever you fancy.
