  • - [Jessy] Check it out!

  • - It's so beautiful.

  • - That's why you were being so suspicious.

  • (spooky music)

  • - Hi, I'm Ashley.

  • - My name's Jessy. I have two kids.

  • I have a 15 year old and a 7 year old.

  • - And Buzzfeed is giving me $100

  • to make my daughter's dream costume.

  • - [Ashley] Hey Annie, if you could have any costume,

  • what would it be?

  • - The Haunted Mansion ghost.

  • - This is an extra special costume, because we got to go to

  • Disney world in January, right before

  • the pandemic happened and the kids were pulled

  • out of school.

  • We've always loved the haunted mansion.

  • And when we first moved into our house,

  • the one thing that sealed the deal was the wallpaper.

  • When you first walk in,

  • my daughter demanded that we frame it because she loved it

  • so much.

  • And it turns out it was almost identical to the Haunted

  • Mansion wallpaper.

  • - Today we're doing the costume for

  • my 7 year old daughter, Emma. Her dream costume is actually

  • Selena, which is a 90's Tejano music artist.

  • She is someone that has become so revered in the last 10

  • years. This year marks the 25th anniversary of her passing.

  • My daughter's dream costume is an icon.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Okay, so the kids are outside,

  • so I have a few seconds to

  • show you my inspiration for this dress.

  • This is my favorite Halloween Barbie,

  • so, hopefully I can recreate that dress.

  • - [Jessy] This purple took me a really long time to find.

  • Keeping this a secret, it's going to be a huge challenge.

  • I just have to tell her that I'm making a Barney costume or

  • something. I don't know anything that's purple.

  • - [Ashley] So now I'm trying to match her up with fabric.

  • I was very happy with how closely all of these colors match

  • the dress.

  • - So there are a few things that are going to get in the way

  • of this challenge.

  • There are no patterns for this costume and I'm just doing it

  • with my hands.

  • - So, I haven't made something like this in a

  • really long time,

  • but now that I am sitting here doing it,

  • everything that was impossible before is suddenly coming

  • back to me like that, Celine Dion song.

  • It's all coming back, It's all coming back to me yeah

  • Oh my God.

  • - I actually don't know how to sew that well.

  • I'm really bad.

  • - I do not sew.

  • - [Jessy] I actually don't know how to put this on.

  • So my best friend and roommate is gonna help me.

  • (Jessy laughs)

  • (sewing machine buzzes)

  • Oh, that's bad.

  • - I'm going to tell my daughter that I am making her a vest

  • and I'm going to take construction paper and hold it up to

  • her and trace around it.

  • Okay.

  • So, put your arms out.

  • - What are you doing?

  • - Just making a vest.

  • - Um...

  • - The fact that we're in quarantine,

  • so keeping it a secret is kind of the whole point of this.

  • - So we're doing homeschool this year.

  • So it has been really impossible for me to find time when no

  • one is climbing on me. So I have to be extra sneaky.

  • - What are you doing?

  • - I'm making my costume.

  • - Oh...

  • - Have you ever started a project and you're like,

  • oh, that'll take like three hours.

  • And then you look at all of your stuff and you start

  • thinking about even for a second. And you're like, Oh no,

  • no, no, no, no.

  • That's about, that's like three months of work.

  • (sewing machine buzzes)

  • - That's not even straight,

  • yeah that's definitely not even.

  • - [Ashley] I wonder if glue guns are frowned upon

  • on project runway.

  • I feel like Tim Gunn would be really disappointed.

  • (can sprays)

  • (upbeat modern music)

  • - Here I am with the dress.

  • I am about to go show it to Annie.

  • I'm nervous, but excited.

  • Yay!

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Ashley] Hey Annie?

  • Can I show you something?

  • Do you know what this is?

  • - It's the Haunted Mansion dress!

  • - [Ashley] Yeah.

  • - That's why you were being so suspicious.

  • - [Jessy] And, 3. Check it out!
