Because we have a lot of other expenses, I just pulled the resources existing at home and just created the look. Here are my costume models:

I have an existing white long skirt, a white sleeveless blouse hidden in the closet, and a gold chain belt which I will use as the costume's base look. As a sash or drape, an unused blue cloth I found in mom's drawer will soon have its purpose. Now, here's how I made the headdress, arm cuffs, and ring to complete the entire Greek Goddess look.
STEP 1: I took one of our Christmas Tree decor, a gold Poinsettia, a black garter kept in our rustic sewing box, a black thread and a needle for sewing the materials together.
STEP 2: I dismantled the leaves and cut each one from its stem.
STEP 3: The garter was measured to my head's circumference, just enough not to create marks on my forehead when worn. Garter ends were sewn.
STEP 4: The leaves were sewn to the garter. Number of leaves depend on the garter's measurement. Mine took six leaves to complete the headdress.
STEP 5: I repeated the same process for my arm band. I also made a ring out of the Poinsettia decor's centerpiece. Below are my DIY Greek Goddess costume accessories: headdress, armband and ring.
All it took were some skill in sewing, a dash of creativity and a solid practical objective for doing this project. Here is the headdress finished product.
I will create another post on the complete look of my Halloween Greek Goddess costume and the events that my kids and I will participate it. How about you? How are you doing with your Halloween preparations?
