Damsel in Distress costume (tied to train tracks)
October 31, 2008 9:44 AM Subscribe
Today is Halloween and i can't procrastinate anymore...I guess I have to go as the only thing I could come up with: A damsel in distress. I wanna look like the girls in the old westerns when they get tied to train tracks by the bad guy. Any suggestions on what to use as train tracks? I can run over to home depot, I just don't know what to look for that's lightweight (i'm a small girl) and looks like tracks. I can nail a few things together without problem.

I know girls were tied to them with the tracks horizontal across their back, but I think it might look better if the train tracks were vertical and you could see them above my head. I plan on wearing a dress and tying rope around my stomach and the tracks. Any other suggestions on train track materials or other things I can do to make this more of a costume? Hair/makeup ideas?
I'm afraid it's barely a costume, as is.
