Coolest Statue of Liberty Costume

I researched online what exactly she looked like, so that the Statue of Liberty costume would be completely accurate.

I found this unique fabric, that had a shimmer to it, at Jo-Anns fabrics. I bought 12 yards of it, made a real long dress and draped the rest of the material around my shoulders. I bought the shoes a local goodwill, and spray painted them. I made her crown out of foam and a foam visor I found at Wal-Mart. The wig was also purchased at Wal-Mart and I pinned it to the crown and spray painted it as well.

I found that flashlight, believe it or not, at a costume store, and it was only $1.99! I also added clay to the bottom of it to make it look like the torch and added poster board around the light to make it look realistic.

I think the total amount of money spent on this was around $30. I won first place at a Halloween costume contest last year.

  1. Its so nice to see people actually making their costume themselves. Every year, I attend a very serious, well-hosted Halloween party and costume contest. I do my best to fully make my costume, although, I do sometimes purchase some props to go with it, rather than fully fabricating them myself.

    Soooo many of the guests simply PURCHASE their entire costume, and believe it or not, they sometimes actually place in the contest, competing with others who actually MAKE their own costumes!!

    This year, I am going as the Statue of Liberty, so I was happy to see your great costume on-line, to inspire me!!

    Thanks, and great job! Kudos to you for making your very own!!!!
