Every year Halloween gives us a chance to escape reality and dress up as anything we want! This year we had a Disney theme and my first choice was The Little Mermaid but since I was already a mermaid TWICE (as in two different costumes), I opted for being Tinkerbell (my next fav Disney character).

I tried to make my Tinkerbell costume match her Disney outfit as close as possible. I used green glitter fabric as the under structure and sewed a lighter green lace fabric over. I glued a gold glitter trim along the edges and used some trim to make a headband. Then, of course, I did some sparkle eye make-up because that’s just me. Halloween isn’t the same without some glitz and glam you know?

I wasn’t going to wear any wings because I was running out of time to make them. Plus wings can get in the way when walking (especially when going to a crowded place)…but the bf got me some and it perfectly match my dress so I couldn’t resist! After all, Tinkerbell isn’t Tinkerbell without her wings.

What do you think? Leave me a comment as I’d love to know your thoughts!
