The theme at work this year is “Disney” and my favorite movie growing up was Beauty and the Beast. My boyfriend is 6’5″ which is perfect for a Beast, but I didn’t want to be the typical Belle in the gold dress. Instead, I spent 30 hours this fall season making “The Enchanted Rose.”
Here is a detailed description:
Me (Ashley) as Rose: Stem made out of an artificial plant that I bought at Goodwill then painted green. Leafs and Rose made of crepe paper. “Glass covering” made of clear umbrella and 3 yards of vinyl. And lots of hot glue.
Dan as the Beast: Handmade horns. Zombie hands and big-foot paws were covered with black fur. Jacket purchased online, and my boyfriend’s willingness to wear a wig.
Henry the Dog as the Footstool: Re-used fabric from other projects sewed to dog vest.
Total Cost: $150
