Yet a costume at the Halloween party is absolutely mandatory. So, of course, I decided to DIY one that would fit inside my budget and comfort level when it came to modesty.
I went as a sailor.
I pulled out a knee length navy skirt and a white tshirt I had
I used white, red and blue duct tape I had left over from making this costume for my son.
That Guy, with permission, took home a coffee filter for me. And I borrowed a headband from my daughter and my sons red marker. My only real cost here was $4.50 for three packages of brass buttons.

Next I tool a length of Bristol board cut into a strip and used duct tape to secure it into a circle. Any cardboard could work here though. Also, for the record I think I got the height here wrong. All night I was being asked if I was a flight attendant, but I think if I had cut the strip of Bristol board thinner it would have looked more "sailor-ish".
