DIY: Ocean Themed Costume

I have finally finished my costume! After hours of sewing, gluing and discussing my mom and I have finally finished it. I’m so thankful for her help because I could have never done it by myself. In case you’re wondering how we did it it’s really very easy. We went shopping and bought a plain blue dress, some pearls, a fisher’s net, little fish and, starfish and shells. My mom then sewed the green and white pearls as well as the fisher’s net on to the dress. Then we simply glued everything else on to the net and that’s it already. Here’s how it turned out.

When we went shopping for the dress we found this adorable fish purse.

I also created this headband. I just bought a sparkly headband and glued some shells and a starfish on it.

Now that my costume is finally done and I’m really pleased with how it turned out, I’m actually starting to look forward to be in the parade tomorrow. It’ll be my first time in years. The last time I’ve walked in a Carnival Parade was in kindergarten, I believe. Thanks to my friends who pretty much forced me to come with them I’m going to do it again. It should be fun though. At least I hope so.

What do you think of my costume? Can you recognise the ocean theme?

Have a lovely weekend! XX
