Halloween Part Two: Rosie the Riveter

Of course, I couldn't resist a little photoshopping.

Jumpsuit: vintage. Belt: Kohl's. Headband: diy. Boots: spare closet at my house.

Did I mention in my last post how much I love Halloween?  Because I really do love it, and I really love this costume.  I decided right after Halloween last year that I wanted to be Rosie the Riveter this year, and I kept that in the back of my mind every time I was out shopping.  I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to use for the costume, but I figured I had enough time that at some point, I would see it and just know.

That point came over the summer, when a friend and I were browsing through a local vintage store and this lovely blue number called out to me.  I snagged it for a mere $14 dollars and stashed it away for Halloween.  

All I had to do to make it costume ready was cut off the long sleeves and roll them into a cuff, and add a belt to pull in some of the extra bulk of the jumpsuit.  The headband was just a quick diy with a little fabric from the craft store.  This is probably one of my favorite costumes that I've made; I think I got a lot of bang for my buck, too.

Happy Halloween!!
