All for One! And one for all!

I created the costumes for this year...next year, I might just take the easy way out and head to the store and purchase them...because I kind of went overboard this year.

I found yards and yards of gorgeous soft velvety type fabric at a yard sale a couple of months ago for a couple of dollars. And from that....Barbie Three Musketeers was born.

I scoured the internet for directions first, and came across a gem of a blog. Brown Paper Packages gave directions for how to easily create each piece of the costume, including the genius creation of Musketeer boots made out of Duck Tape.
It was a ton of work, but totally worth it. Don't you think?

Happy Halloween, y'all!

Wow, I was just searching for this same Halloween costume and pulled up your blog. I know this was a few years ago, but any chance you'd be willing to sell your Musketeer costume if you still have one? I can be reached at jburnssullivan@gmail.com. Thanks!
