Quickie Costume and Linky Party #199


 Welcome to 199th Masterpiece Monday!

I'm sure the majority of you already have your kid's Halloween costumes all picked and ready.
But just in case you're a last minute costume maker this year, I wanted to share a very easy, quick and frugal costume idea that anyone can make!
Just start with some old or thrifted clothing. Simply cut and/or tear them up! You can use face make-up to look like a zombie, or add a monster mask.
My daughter wanted to be a scary bride, so we scoured the thrift stores and found a gown marked half off at $12.00.
She went to town on it with some scissors and a lot of ripping. She also cleverly added a red ribbon she already had to the back zipper area for a gothic look. She just poked holes in the material and threaded the ribbon through.

Here it is, nicely ripped and torn!
A friend of hers gave her a leftover can of fake blood spray for free.
 And my daughter asked me to spray her dress for her.
This was actually pretty fun!

She went to a friends Halloween party last Friday and won a prize for the scariest costume!
