I was on a tight budget and running out of time before Halloween. But, I still wanted a fun and creative costume. I decided that I hadn’t seen many mummy costumes around since I was a child so I thought I’d give it a try. This Homemade Mummy Woman’s Costume was extremely inexpensive and easy to make.

I started with a white bandeau bra and some white boy shorts. I purchased white cheese cloth from the sewing/craft section at Walmart which was pretty cheap (I used a couple packages so if you desire a more conservative look I suggest purchasing a bit more). I simply cut the cloth into long strips and wrapped them around my body to my preferences. I also used some safety pins to secure the cloth more tightly to my top and bottoms.

I wore white flip flops and wrapped some of the cheese cloth around the sandals and up my leg. I finished the look by tying remaining strips of cloth wherever I thought looked good, using dark makeup, and big messy hair. Keep in mind as a mummy, the messier it looks the better it will turn out.
