My handmade cloud costume

Usually for our preschool costume party I borrow something from one of the other teachers, and for the past several years I've been a scarecrow. Not sure what got into me but this year I decided to be a cloud.
So I found some cotton fabric leftovers stashed away. After washing it I splattered the fabric with watered down acrylic paint. After it dried, I ironed and cut a scalloped edge. The wispy scarf is a remnant of cheese cloth from when I made my own damar varnish for oil painting. The tulle came from who knows where. For the rain drops I painted dark blue paper with silver and blues and then cut them into shape. They also have a few silver sequins for sparkle and a layer of clear contact paper on both sides for durability. Silver cord ties them to the hem of the "skirt". You can't see the rain drop strand in my pony tail and silver ribbons but they're there. The porcelain cloud pin is made by Kylie Johnson.
Since I'm not someone who sews, the fabric is all held together with two safety pins, three velcro tabs, and a little fabric glue. I'm calling it good.
