Time to hit those thrift stores for fun costume ideas (get there now before the good stuff is gone!). Here are a few costume ideas put together with thrift store finds. Here is my son trying out some 70's clothes I got for a 70's party. Aren't those stretchy pants fabulous? And what about those shoes?
Here is middle son in the same 70's shirt, with some disco dude homemade glasses. His buddy is wearing grandma clothes from the thrift store (wig was from there too!). The other friend is sporting a white turtleneck from the thrift store and some groovy taped up nerd glasses.
Here is another granny one. Grandma purses make great candy bags.
In this one my son was a Montana State football player (the local team, but not the team we are for) who just finished playing the University of Montana (where my husband played football). Notice the torn jersey and the bandaged arm. The jersey was a large, Old Navy one that I found at thrift store in the right colors so we tore it up and the ace bandage came from the thrift store too (I washed it first). I spray painted the helmet (from the thrift store too!) gold like the team wears.
There are so many great possibilities-so let those imaginations work and get to those thrift stores soon.
PS--I am not getting paid by any thrift store to push them in these last two posts Ü--I just find them a great resource!
