I decided pretty last minute that I wanted to wear a costume. I don't have a lot of money to purchase a costume and I don't really want to run in a store-bought costume so I decided to make a little something that would help me look a little like Tinkerbell.
First I already had this bright green t-shirt. I bought it at Target. I ordered a pair of wings from Ebay for $4.
Next, I decided to make a tutu. I always see people wearing them and I think they are super cute. I bought 9 yards of tulle from Walmart. You are suppose to use lots and lots of tulle for a really full tutu, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I used half the recommended amount. I already had a strip of elastic to use as the waistband. I cut the strips of tulle 7 inches thick.

I gathered the strips in the middle and knotted them around the elastic band.
Push the tulle together for a full and fluffy tutu.
The finished product.
Tinkerbell wears shoes like these:
I have green running shoes that I usually just wear to CrossFit or on short runs. I'm planning on wearing them. I couldn't find a huge pom pom. I found these at Walmart.
The final product!
Ever ran in a costume before?
