So I’m posting this two months late, but it’s better late than never, right? This was my Purim costume which is basically like Halloween but we don’t go trick or treating. I had no time to actually make a costume from scratch so I had to make do with stuff I had lying around the house, thankfully I have a weird wardrobe so this wasn’t as difficult as this sounds.
The skirt is my Mystery Pocket Skirt
I had some fabric lying around and was inspired by a tie I saw on the internet so I decided to make it. I never actually wore this but it turned out perfect for my costume!
Last but not least, I made the hat especially for the occasion, it came out a little smushed but I’m proud at my first attempt at making the hat.
I was pretty impressed for a last minute costume!
For more photos and my inspiration check out my blog post!
