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 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. 🙂
Whadda ya think- will I be able to keep those kindergarteners in line at our Halloween party now?
Thanks to my Ruggedly Handsome Husband for takin’ some time out outta his busy day to snap a few photos for me today.
Yeehaw, lookin’ good, honey!
PS. This is a rerun post, but I thought you might like to see it again for Costume Week.
Have a great day!
