DIY Retro Goldfish Costume | The Ultimate

Notes

Try to find a simple dress without a lot of flare in the skirt, the reason being that you’ll already need several hundred cupcake liners to cover it; no need to make yourself more work! The cutting goes pretty quickly though, as you can stack several at a time. I would definitely recommend sewing them onto a cheap, thrifted find–I actually taped mine all on (which took FOREVER) because I wanted to save the beautiful handmade cocktail dress I used.

It’s October! Otherwise known as the month when most other people start enthusing about turning leaves and scarves and apple cider or WHATEVER. All good things, but I’m pretty sure I have my priorities straight when I say that Halloween costumes are what we all really need to focus on. Or at least this is true if you too have a tendency to undertake really massive DIYs that take practically the whole month to pull together. So in preparation, I thought I’d show a couple of favorite costume DIYs from past Halloweens. Hope you like!
