I originally had a different idea for my costume, but when I went to goodwill I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. My friend pulled this dress off the rack and suggested I use it. I tried it on. It fit like it was made for me! I spent $10 on the dress. $8 on red hair spray color & $3 on silk ivy that we found at the thrift store as well.
With the help of my friend teasing my hair, spraying it red & pinning the ivy on I ended up with a very cost effective costume ($21 total) that grabbed the attention of everyone that I passed.
