DIY Halloween Costumes Under $50 — Natalie Portman's Black Swan

Who didn’t love Natalie Portman’s dramatic Swan Lake costume in the Oscar nominated film, Black Swan?

A first film showing for the Mulleavey sisters of Rodarte, the black ballerina costume is ornately decorated with jewels, feathers and heavy black tulle, and was a visual stunner.

But who wants to pluck down (pun intended) a few grand for Halloween? You can channel your inner vixen with our affordable version that is complete with a black leotard, tutu, tiara and ballet slippers.

Throw in a handful of properly placed black feathers, dramatic black eyeliner, white face powder, and lipstick, and you too, can get the right look.

Rodarte, you’ve got nothin’ on us! (Okay, well maybe.)
