What you will need:

•Black Tutu (I found this at a local dance store for $23, but you can buy similar ones at Halloween stores)


•Light pink tights (Wal-mart $4.50)

•I suggest ballet slippers over pointed shoes. They are much more comfortable and will not kill your feet.(The local dance store had them on sale for $5!)

•Pink ribbon (Wal-Mart $3.79)

•Tiara (Jo-Ann fabric $1.99)

•Rhinestones (Michael’s sells the multi pack for $2.99, but check your closet for old clothes with larger stones you can use)

•Black Feathers (Michael’s has many options. I choose the feather half circle and pack of loose feathers)

•Black feather boa ribbon

•Black tulle spool ( Jo-Ann fabric $ 2.99)

•Clothing glue
