Last minute costume party and want to stand out in the sea of dime store princesses?
Re-claiming the angel within, just got easy.
Cut a circle that is as wide as your "wingspan" out of angel-ey fabric like muslin, felt or that leftover ghost sheet from last year
(*wristpoint to wristpoint across your back - - arms out).
Cut a slit from the top point of the circle - halfway down to the center. Cut a shorter slit from the bottom. This way - the front half
of the circle flops over your arms when they are stretched out.
Cut as much of a neck curve as you need to be comfortable. Sew 2 tie ends on either side of the slit so the wings stay on - and tie
under your neck like a cape.
Tack the 2 sides of fabric together near your wrists - so your wings stay put - like a sleeve.
Spray sneakers to match your halo (held on with wire and a headband) with glow in the dark paint.
Dance like the devil. Front and back angel-views.
