I took the idea from Katy Perry’s Christmas Tree costume. I wanted to make it like a dress, and it had to be awesome (I won the costume contest *-*).
I drew the costume, but I’m not a good designer, so I’ll not show the drawing. I used satin and buckram to do it look like a tree, then I did a dress and the buckram is glued on the dress with velcro. I used led lights (used in led necklaces for parties), so the costume blinks. ^^ All the rest I bought and I glued in the buckram. There is a star in my head and gifts in my legs (they’re small but they’re there and one of them blink too).
You can see the video of the costume here (if you watch it till the end, you can see the blinking lights, I hope you enjoy it. ;)
