Cool Homemade Aunt Jemima Costume

After selling antiques for years, Aunt Jemima has always been a favorite to collect.  I decided to bring her back to life as a Halloween costume.  I went to the local Goodwill and found an old skirt and shirt. I had an apron.with some cutting and hot glue, I had the perfect skirt.  All I  would need was paint and hair color.  Although I am naturally a little round, I decided I needed more.  All I had was a roll of quilt batting.  I wrapped it around my body and it was perfect.   Many friends and neighbors didn’t even know who I was.  I  had people asking me to show them my legs because even my hands and feet were painted.  I won 2 costume contests and everyone wanted their picture with me my husband was worried that the reaction would be negative but was he ever wrong . It was my best costume ever.
