Halloween Refashion - T- Shirts to Peridot from Steven Universe

My kids always like to pick impossible characters to be for Halloween.  The ones you either cannot find at the Halloween Superstores that pop up everywhere, but you can find on amazon for $375 ... for an adult size costume.  Lucky for my kids, they have a mom who is up for the challenge of making their costume dreams come true on a dime store budget.  

My daughter wanted to be Peridot from Steven Universe.  

Lord help me!

I prayed as I went digging into my collection of old clothes I have saved for refashions and found some perfect shirts that would work for her outfit.  I did have to go to the thrift store and buy one extra shirt to finish the top, but her outfit is made completely from old shirts.

I had to go to Joann to find material for her hat, but I scored this vinyl, pleather stuff off of the remnant rack for 50% off.  I sewed a bendable wire into the seam along the edges to keep it upright.
Here is my little Peridot!

I hope you all enjoyed your Halloween!  I meant to post this awhile ago and somehow we are now past Thanksgiving!  I better post this before it becomes Christmas!
