When I first started this blog, I was an unemployed costumer attempting to create period gowns and costumes with very limited means. Although now employed, I still try to be as thrifty as possible. I am still "The Broke Costumer"!
In addition to posts about the outfits I make on a budget, this blog includes short research articles on fashion, history, accessories, styles, or whatever interests me at the moment.
I hope you enjoy my journey into the land of inexpensive costuming and short articles.

New Secret Project
So! Myth Masque Ball is coming soon, and I am ready to start sewing my costume. Black and Silver is my theme this year. I pulled out various bits and pieces of black and silver jewelry to see what I can use, and what I will need. I have more, just need to find it.
Take a guess......
Here is the fabric I am using.
Raiding the cupboard for weights, I am starting to cut out the pieces. That is all I will say about that! And lets not forget about the trims :)
Best of all, this will be very inexpensive, thanks to Christmas and Birthday gift certificates from Joanns, and a huge after holiday sale.
