Group Costume -- Toy Story

Though this looks like a normal, expensive ensemble, this represents two of my super cheap principals: second hand and borrow! Woody is wearing his brother's hand-me down while Buzz is wearing a borrowed costume from a friend. They look adorable and no one was complaining about hand me downs because they got to dress up together. A few other touches made it perfect: freckles on Woody and a swirly chin design on Buzz, both drawn with mom's eyeliner.
