Throwback Thursday: The Gilly Halloween Costume [PHOTOS]
Halloween will be here before you know it. Have you picked up a costume yet?
This is one of my favorite holidays, because I love any excuse to dress up and act like an idiot.
When it comes to selecting costumes, I try to go with something that I think no one else will be wearing. Most of my costumes are self assembled. Like the Gilly costume.
I had an amazing response to this outfit. People either had no idea what I was or they totally got it. No grey area. The ones who got it, LOVED it. This is probably one of my most successful costumes to date. I had people asking to take pictures with me all night. In fact, the next day my face was sore from trying to make the Gilly look.
This costume was pretty cheap to put together. I bought material, a dress pattern, a giant bow and a wig. My mother sewed the dress (we modified an adult jumper to make it look like a little girl's dress), then I sculpted the wig with a pair of scissors to give it more of a bulbous look.
Stay tuned for more DIY costume ideas!
