My kids continue to challenge me with their costume choices. This year, Autumn has select Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit. Oy.
I thought this would be impossible because of the cost but, with a little creativity and repurposing, it’s possible.
This is the corset/top from my sister’s bridesmaid dress. I took it in and tailored it for Autumn to wear over a sweatshirt (it’s always cold on Halloween here).
I cut the sleeves off of the Bellatrix jacket, reused some of those pieces to give the jacket shape, and then added fur.
