I am a thrift store addict when it comes to costumes. I love going into one in search for the perfect thing that I can turn into an amazing costume. Amber's, Jack's, my mom's, and many other's costumes were great thrift store finds. My dress came from a clearance sale at JC Penny's way before I started the thrift store searches. I knew when I say it, it would be perfect for the look that I was going for, but it just needed a little sparkle! Some of the dresses already had a great 20's look to them so all I needed to do was fit them. A few others needed a little something something to make them really pop. For Amber's costume I added black fringe to the top and the bottom and added a satin ribbon around her waist. Jack's suit as a great find at a thrift store in Phoenix when I was there for a work conference and had time to kill in the evening, it fit great once I took it in a little on the sides. A lot of the accessories I was able to find on eBay like the hats, spenders, and ties. Party City also had some great hats and long strands of pearls. The headpieces I made were really easy, look for instructions on my earlier post. I used a lot of websites as a reference for the costumes, here are a few of my favorite links: A lot of the girls used theses links to get hair and make up ideas. Since it was my birthday I had my friend do my hair and make up, it came out so perfect for the theme. I was really happy with how much everyone got into the spirit of the party and got all glammed up! Even Duffey had a little extra bling that night.
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side.
