Homemade Disney Costume - Esmeralda

Hi everyone! So something a little different to my usual nail or travel related posts but I really wanted to share this because I was actually pretty impressed with my costume! For my friends birthday she decided to have a Disney themed dress code so I decided to go as Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame! My other friends dressed as Buzz Lightyear, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Rapunzel, Minnie Mouse, Melody (The Little Mermaid 2), Cinderella, the Wicked Witch from Snow White and the birthday girl was Jasmine so there was a real mix!

I basically got my whole costume for under £20 even though I pretty much bought everything new from Ebay! The top I picked up from here for only £5.95 which included P&P. It's a little bit see through but I can't really complain and to be honest I could quite easily wear it again dressing up as a pirate or something!

The skirt I got from the same seller on Ebay again for £5.95 and I actually really like it! It's got a long thin layer and then a shorter layer of the same material making sure your aren't revealing too much! I'll probably end up wearing this again somewhere warm on holiday. Both this and the top came within a couple of days of ordering which I was very impressed with!

Also from Ebay, but a different seller this time, I bought a sort of corset waist band for £2.79! I was looking for something greeny blue but had no luck so had to settle with this black one. I wouldn't wear it out casually but it would go well with the top for a pirate themed outfit and you can do it up very easily as there is Velcro at the back. I ordered this the week of the party and it arrived within plenty of time which was lucky!

I already had a waist scarf which my aunt bought when she was on holiday a while ago so although it was dark blue and not purple I didn't really see any point in buying a new one just for that evening but they are very easy to get a hold of if you don't have one!

Whilst in Spain last week I bought this lovely hoop earrings which have purple detailing on them so I thought they would be perfect to wear! I know she just wears plain gold hoops but you've just got to make do with what you've got really!

I curled my hair and some black pumps and that was my finished look!

Hope this gives you some inspiration if you've got any fancy dress parties coming up and I would love to see any costumes you've made for parties! Thanks for reading!
