It was time to make my annual costume for Venice is Sinking. Since my cousin decided to dress as the Pope, I decided to dress as Mary. It was either that or a communion wafer. I've never been one to be overly religious and the last time I thought about Mary was when I played her at the age of seven in the church nativity.
But, I'm always up for a challenge.
I made this headdress and costume.
I added LED stars. And flowers.
My veil and dress were long sheets of sheets fabric. They did nothing to flatter my figure, but then again, Mary didn't need to have a slamming figure.
