My $4 King Tut Costume

It's that time of year again.
Halloween Costumes.
My son needed an Egyptian Pharoah costume for a class project so I got to kill 2 birds with one stone.
Plus I only spent $4.  Yep.  $4.
Looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

 For the collar it's just tin-foil and cardboard.  Cut the shapes out of cardboard and cover with tin-foil.  I taped the back with Scotch-Tape to hold.

The beads were some cheap ($2.50) gold tone plastic beads that we stitched onto the plates with heavy thread and a yarn quilting needle.  Then strung them together with ribbon.  I cut the slits with a paring knife.  Leave enough ribbon in the back to tie together.  The apron was constructed the same way just longer cardboard pieces.

The top was made from a piece of packing tape folded together then wrapped in tin-foil.  I used a yard of red satin that I had on hand, folded the top and used packing tape to hold in place.

The tunic was from an old bed sheet that I used one of his t-shirts as a pattern and serged together.  I added a strip of silver ribbon to the hem to finish the look.


The staffs were made from old broken tent poles wrapped in tin-foil.

The tassle was $1.50 in the clearance isle.    We wrapped his arm with the rope left over from the tassle tie-back.

Not too shabby for an Egyptian Pharoah!

    chilԁren. I fоunԁ a sea shell аnd gаѵe it
    to my 4 уеar οlԁ daughter and saіd
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She ρlaced the shell to hеr ear and screamed.
