I decided to be a lost soul from the Titanic. I got the homemade lost soul from the Titanic Halloween costume idea from this site. I went to the thrift store and found an old captains coat that I had to sew buttons too, and also printed a patch from the Internet that was from the Titanic and glued it on the coat.
I wore a long skirt and lace up boots to try to look vintage. Then I put makeup on to look cold. I had a life ring that I found on a beach while beachcombing so I used that around my neck. Every one thought it was a cool idea.
