NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Halloween is just around the corner! Our producer, Taylor Feingold, is showing us a new do it yourself costume each day this month.

Army strong!

The military is so inspiring to me, and I think that it's great if a costume has a special meaning. This costume is obviously not an accurate depiction of an army uniform, just what I could find in my closet.

I search my closet for anything army green. I started with these army green pants that are super comfortable. I then put on this white tank so that I wasn't completely monotone. My mom had the jacket for a previous costume - not sure if that counts as cheating! The dog tag came off of my keychain, I put it on a chain I had from another necklace.

I seriously thank those who serve our country for their bravery, hard work, and dedication.
