Angel

DIY Angel costume with embellished dress and embellished wings.

I found a basic white dress at a thrift store and since she wanted to be a "gold angel" for Halloween, I added a thin gold embellishment as stripes up the front of the dress (just used a glue gun).  I also hot glued a gold chiffon overskirt to the dress to make it more princess-like, and added a snowflake brooch to dress it up a little bit.  Her wings already had the gold design, but they were too small so I cut them apart and glued them to a foam block (I actually cut apart a foam aluminum can cozy).  I then covered the block in boa feathers, added boa feathers to the outside edge of her wings, and purchased a boa feather halo that just happen to match perfectly.  I curled her hair and used a thin paintbrush with water based facepaints to do the angel wing design on her face.

    Thank you! Her sisters both had their faces painted for their Halloween costumes and I didn't want her to feel left out, so I thought, "What would be better than white and gold angel wing facepaint?" I was happy it worked out because she's a squirmy one!
