Just what it says on the label...

So Carnaval is here and the folks need some costumes. The problem is money isn't really flowing so buying an expensive costume (I saw a gorgeous pair of wings... expensive *****es X_X) is out of question.

I have two costume ideas for myself lined up since I have my share of quirky items around the house... stripey stockings, corsets, etc.

However me and my friends need a few more ideas... maybe stuff you can make at home or stuff you can make with regular clothes etc.

So... help? ^^

1) buy a chicken
2) cut off it's wings
3) instant costume

Where's the step where I shove it in my head?

Wait, I'm thinking of a different costume I guess XD

I remember this couple I knew they once went to one of these parties, she dressed like a hippy and he dressed like them 70s dancers (afro and all). I think with regular clothes and specially OLD clothes (if you still have them, from parents etc.), it's easy to evoke fashion from diferent periods, and it's fun.

I'm thinking... GOTHIC ANGEL! :D
That's right! :D

Uhm... Just some black gothic stuff, lace and the lot. Be sure to make it gothic, not emo.
Stylish, not 14-year old rebel.

And then some pure white angel wings to finish the look. :)
Maybe even with some silver glitter on it! :D

Vamp-like makeup in style of 1920's Hollywood vixens! :)

How about going as "undead nude girl"? That should turn some heads :p

For this you will need:

-crack
-grey paint
-"robot dance" lessons

Hum Thorir... I might try making the wings since they're hella expensive.

*whacks Endow over the head* thanks for the idea XD

I'm also looking for suggestions for male outifts... fanks XD

Encore: yeah I actually used to have this glittery dress that could pass for a 1920's thing... but heck if I know where it is :/ I might do another closet search though.

Watch, 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'.

There's your costume.

Corset, stockings, and some well placed glitter? :mis:

Like they do in Rio? :cln: J/K

Maybe you could do the half man, half woman thing? A blazer, fauxstache, and trousers on one side, corset and stockings on the other. Ta-da!
