Bride & Groom T-shirt Costumes for Purim

Santo Domingo, D...






We like to coordinate our costumes, we were tae kwondoists, then a spartan couple, for this year we had no clue since it had to be fresh and breathable (there would be a lot of dancing), modest, fun and easy to make, my husband said joking “make me a tuxedo tee” …and it just started the creativity engine on my head :P So we had a costume wedding, it was so cheap and fun to make, I made it ALL, except for the shoes and his pants, my sister made me the huge ring.

I think that my favorite part of the tuxedo was the cuffs : ), my “dress” didn’t result at all as I thought, because the tee was just too long and I didn’t notice it, but I loved the results anyways. The whole project was so much fun, and wearing it was awesome too.

I sewed the flowers, though in the tutorial teaches it with glue…I’m a glue mess.

In all of this project we spent less than USD$10 since we only bought the buttons and the t-shirts, the tulle was a decoration leftover from our real wedding almost 2 years ago.
