Costume Idea: Space GirlJoan of Arc


This tunic top and hood are originally meant to be part of a child’s chain mail costume. On a woman, it fits more closely, and can be used to create many costumes. Two of my suggestions are: Star Trek space alien, or Joan of Arc. For the first, makeup can create a new look for your face, say, a third eye in the middle of your forehead. For the latter, make a sword from cardboard and aluminum foil, and complete with tights worn with pointy short boots, medieval-style
