Raiding your Closet for Costumes (ET)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Repurposing that leisure suit or ruffled shirt into components for a superhero or supervillain is not only an inexpensive alternative, but also requires little to no sewing skills. Thanks to the wonder of modern no-sew components, fabric paint, glue, and other readily available items, even a novice costumer can create a great look.
