Twit Too Woo

My fascination with Pinterest hasn't waned, probably because it still is a great source of inspiration (or place to steal ideas from depending on how you look at it).  The idea for the girls Halloween costumes came from a pin which lead me to this website.  
I got 4 mens shirts from Goodwill (totalling 5 bucks, love that place), leggings from Goodwill & two long sleeve black T shirts from Walmart for 4 bucks each & glasses from Party City.
I made a template for the feathers and set to cutting up the shirts.
I got into the zone and cut up all of each shirt which in fact gave me far too many "feathers".  I'm sure I'll find another use for them one day...
Then sewed them in rows onto the T shirts from the bottom up.

I covered the front & the back, but not the arms - why not? don't know.  I bodged feathers to the glasses & attached a felt beak using tape and a lot of glue.  The same felt was used for the feet, held on with pipe cleaners.
I think both outfits cost a total of $15, which is a steal. 
Happy Halloween
