Buying a costume is easy, so I totally get the appeal. One of my costumes — which you’ll see soon — is direct from a store. That’s a little unusual for me, since I prefer putting together costumes with every day clothing mixed with costume accessories (such as this wig, or a necessary prop) and makeup. It makes for a more unique costume, and you can wear the pieces more than once! When you google Morton Salt Girl Costume, some old photos of me pop up. The funny thing is that it wasn’t intended to be a costume, but it works. Have a yellow dress and an umbrella? You’re halfway there. Just add some yellow mary janes (or yellow shoes in general), white tights, and a package of Morton salt. For my costume, I added a yellowish wig, because otherwise I just ended up looking like myself on a rainy Tuesday, hanging around in one of my favorite vintage dresses (aka the photo of me that pops up on google images). Easy peasy!
