I made a costume of my favorite tequila- Patron Silver!
I used grey felt as the base, the label was traced on silver lame with a sharpie marker using a light table (actually a glass coffee table with a lamp underneath) and then the top layer is grey sheer charmuse. Sewing the 3 layers together made it look like clear glass and like a stiff box shape without actually being stiff. The neck tie is green polyester. The hat is made from left over pieces of my other costume, the mel cone, stuffed with poly fill to resemble the cork, with an elastic band to hold it on my head!
