I like costumes with an old-fashioned flavor, and I love paper crepe! Victorian Trading Company carries some great masks and headbands, as well as full costumes:
That skull headband is a favorite :) I like to start with a piece like this and then build my own costume off of it with stuff I already have (and since I have been collecting for awhile, there is a lot to work with!)
