I saw this website and decided to make a costume just for the contest. I did not actually do anything this Halloween (2011). I was going to have my friends help me with the photo but they had other plans. First I decided to make a costume based off the 4 seasons. Then I went to the thrift store and our home attic and collected a bunch of junk to use as part of the Homemade Four Seasons Costume.
Then I found out my friends could not help me with this so I decided to make 4 costumes for myself. So one afternoon I spent about 5 hours changing into the costumes and taking pictures.
For summer I am wearing a baseball hat, sunglasses, shorts, flip flops, shirt, a lei, and floats. I have an American flag in my pocket and I'm holding a beach bucket. For spring I put on a flowery dress I already owned and wore spring-y shoes. I tried to look alive and happy in my picture. I held a basket for Easter which also had grass, a graduation chicken, and flowers inside. I held a stuffed bunny and wore a flower hat.
For fall, I had a pencil on my ear, wore fall-like clothes, and carried books and a pumpkin. I taped leaves from a poster decoration to my shirt. For winter, I wore house shoes, winter pajama pants, a shirt, a vest, and gloves. I wrapped myself up in Christmas lights, wrapped my arms in snow/winter cheap garland, put a fake poinsettia on my ear, and put a bow on my head.
We were the four seasons, and we actually got the idea from this website. Our Homemade Four Seasons Group Costume were very cheap and none of them went over 10.00.
Fall- A hunter green v- neck from Wal Mart, Maroon shorts (already owned), and leaves that came from the fall section at the Dollar tree, and brown leggings (already owned). She just glued the leaves on her leggings, shoes, and made earrings with them. The Pine cones and the big flower were were also from fall section at dollar tree. Halloween eyelashes.
Winter- I just wrapped a white tree skirt around a white dress, spay painted the boots silver, and glued/taped the tinsel and the snow flakes on the tree skirt. Bought a green small plain wreath from Christmas section in the dollar store and sprayed it white. Grey cardigan( already owned). Eyelashes with silver tips.
Spring- Pink leggings, and a spring dress (anyone who volunteers to be Spring should have one) and some vine flowers from the dollar store. Big flowers in the back came from the Christmas section at Wal Mart. Halloween Eyelashes.
Summer- A yellow visor from Dollar tree, that was cut into the sun. Yellow leggings, and yellow shorts. A big white shirt with the Sun painted on it. And boots (previously owned) with sunflower vine wrapped around them. Halloween Eyelashes.
