    That post is a bit too general for us to help. Can you tell us what kind of things you like/what you're into? We'll have something to start off then.

    Yes, give us more details and I'm sure you'll get tons of info, not to mention we'll tell you which stores and websites to look at. Do you want to be scary? A character from a movie? Does your party have a theme? Do you want to wear a full mask or maybe a partial mask? Remember, depending on where you live, a full over the head mask can get really hot really quick. Give us some more details ASAP and we'll help you out!

    Where are you located? I'd be happy to help you with a one of a kind costume. Easier if you're closer, of course, but if not I'll help out through email. I've been doing costumes for over a dozen years (all kinds)

    Have you thought about making it yourself? There are a lot of pluses to doing this and it's not as hard as people make it out to be. You get to pick your own fabrics and trims, there are TONS of patterns to choose from and you, luckily, have time on your side right now. Think about how it will feel when you have this great one of a kind costume and when people ask where you got it you can say "I made it myself". Plus, I really think sewing is becoming a lost skill, so I try and encourage young people to learn at least the basics. I never learned to sew until I had my daughter and now I can look at stuff I've done and I get a real sense of pride in it. It's great to be able to design your own things and make them and my daughter loves that she can point out something in a magazine and know that we don't have to go buy it, I'll make it and she can put her own "look" into it.

    You say you want something "Pretty", but easy to move in all day. To me that says Fairy (you can buy wings and dress them up yourself, even I don't like making those*L*), Renaissance (easier than it looks to make, really they are and you can pick out gorgeous fabric for the bodice and build the rest off of it) or bellydancer (not all of them are bare mid-driff, a tribal outfit covers and I think are prettier, especially since you can make the hair pieces to go with it.

    Just something to consider and like I said, I'll help as much as I can if you have questions or need to know where to get ideas or pattern numbers.

    Girly Girl pink and purple and light blue...what about some kind of fairy or good witch? I think something nice and light. You would not need a mask, but maybe could have some glitter makeup or something to enhance the fairy effect...something frilly and pretty. Take a look at some fairy pics and get an idea of what you would ike...
