Costume Week: There’s a New Sheriff in Town

Sheriff Costume Tutorial

It’s that time of year again! Time to pull out a few thrift store finds from the bottom of the pile and create a fun costume for Halloween. My motto is quick and easy these days so I kept it pretty simple.

I started with a homemade fake suede skirt and a Roper dress that was a little too much of a good thing, but perfect for a sheriff costume.

First, I simply cut off the bottom of the dress to make it into a shirt.

Notice the horseshoe fabric and the fake leather trim? Perfectly cheesy!

I then used my rotary cutter to cut fringe around Β the bottom of the skirt.

Add a belt, bandana, badge, some boots and wha-la….. a sheriff costume is born.

Of course a sheriff costume wouldn’t be complete without a corny tin foil badge. πŸ™‚
