Every year I search the internet for the the perfect idea for my Halloween costume. And this year I wanted to be totally original, trying something that I’ve never seen before. I was looking at several options and decided to do a bronze statue of Blind Justice Costume.
The costume was relatively easy to put together. At my local fabric store I purchased three yards of a sheer bronze material, which was on sale, in time for Halloween. I also went to the costume store and bought gold hairspray, gold makeup and a sword (which I spray painted gold.) The scales were a little harder to find, but I bought them on e-bay for about $15.00.
First I curled my hair with a curling iron and put it in a high ponytail, and sprayed with the gold hairspray, and put on the makeup, which covered all of my exposed skin. I cut a narrow piece of fabric, for the blindfold (the fabric was sheer enough to see through) and I wrapped the rest of the material in a no-sew toga with directions from e-how.
Carried the scales and the sword and I was done. The entire costume cost about $30.00.
