Belt is leather, sits at waistline, with decorative dagger ( A fake spring blade would be preferable)
Wig is high beahive bouffant top and long straight hair to mid back.
very high heeled black court shoes ( since i cant wear courts, i will get mary jane type courts with a thin strap.)

One of the most important parts of Elvira's costume is her....cleavage. Now im actually bigger than her, so i am getting a corset made to get the same effect. Having it custom made by Desert Orchid designs corsets.
