So, what was I? Since I was dressing up with Jade, we decided to be daughter nature (doesn't make sense to have two mother natures, really). Granted, this is in no way the best costume ever, but! we had such a good time making the costume & that's what it's all about for me - having fun.
We bought large, green, men's t-shirts from Target for $7 & a bunch of faux (on sale) leaves, vines & flowers from Michaels. In total, the costume was around $20 each. Costume on a budget & a good time? Sweet deal.
We cut the t-shirts to be off the shoulder since they were so huge (cut along the seam by the neck), but we wanted shirts big enough to cover our upper bodies and long enough to work as dresses with opaque leggings. I also cut my sleeves by cutting parallel to the edge, about two inches away from the end of the sleeve. We pinned on different vines, fern leaves & ivy in a vine pattern around the shirts. Had we had more money & time, it would have been cool to either paint the shirts first with leaves OR add leaves allllll over. For another time.
Jade did our hair awesomely - teased, with braids, curled & then pulled back and pinned to one side. We added in feathers to give the costume a nature feeling & not just trees.
