With "11.1 million tons of textile waste going into landfills per year" this Halloween I challenge you all to MAKE your own costume out of materials you already have! "Greek Goddess" is fabric, rope and safety pins with jewels borrowed from designer, Jaclyn Elizabeth . Get creative! #create #BuyLessChooseWell #UseAgain #UseWhatchaGot
