Crafting from Everyday Wardrobe


Still don’t have a costume yet? You can always take the lazy route by simply throwing in a pair of tennis shorts or cheerleading uniform. And tell them you are a sportsperson fan.

Give yourself a dramatic look and use a picture frame for a self-portrait costume.

Happy deciding and happy Halloween 2017!
