This year I was trying to find a unique but VERY cost effective because I am a poor college student. My friend just got a pinup sally tattoo so I ran with it.  I took an old Walmart sundress and sewed patches of old clothes and scrap material on to it with random thread.  I also made the wig. The wig was made from a children's pigtail rag doll wig($5 at Walmart) I used old red yarn I already had (I got lucky that the colors were perfect). I hot glued and styled this wig to be very rockabilly. : D The costume went off Great everyone loved it!!! I even won 1st at my theatre departments costume contest(and if you know anything about theatre people Halloween is our national holiday Grin) And the best part of it all I only spent $20 total!!!
Now Ill shut up and show you the pictures. Cheesy

I love it, awesome job! It's really nice to see a different twist on a classic costume!

I bet the wig was heavy.

Not at all. It actually is the most comfortable and lightest wig I've ever worn. It's only made of yarn so even though there is a lot of it, it doesn't weigh it down.
