A Bewitching Trunk or Treat

Some of you may remember this costume from a couple of years ago.  I created it from six pieces of clothing while I was a contestant on The Renegade Seamstress' Refashion Runway.  You can read all about the process here.

Well, I have never worn it for Halloween...until this year.  And, since my husband and I like to coordinate, he played the part of a wizard.

The really fun part, though, was decorating the trunk of our van to match our costumes.  Last year, we did a steampunk theme for our trunk and costumes.  You can check it out here if you'd like.

As always, the thrift store is my friend when it comes to decorating.

Everything was either purchased at a thrift store, or the dollar store...except for one can of spray foam insulation from a home improvement store.

I love love love this costume. I have been looking for two years looking for similar colours in dresses to make something close to what you've made. I've had no luck but I'm sure one day it will happen. I can't believe you haven't worn it until now!
