Procession Theme - My Favourite Game
Hiring or buying a costume for just 1 day can be expensive.
Here are some sites which give ideas and patterns for those last minute costumes.
Yes – it helps if you can sew – but use your imagination!!
With very few fabric shops around – look in the wardrobe – there could be something there you have been meaning to throw away which you can use. Or look in the airing cupboard – maybe a sheet or towel could be utilised.
Charity shops are also a great places to look – it’s amasing how much material there is in some dresses and skirts.
But please remember with kids, if you are making a costume from card or board.
No sharp corners.
Put a coin on the corners and mark the curve – then cut this.
No sharp edges.
Use tape (masking – UPVC) and run this along the edges.
Nothing toxic – so please use the proper fabric paint.
The pictures below are from an amercian fancy dress store – but if you look at what they are – maybe you can get some ideas.
