As you saw in yesterday’s post, I can’t be happy with a store bought costume as is. We always add a little twist. Today I present to you:
Nerdy 50’s Girl:
This is another one of those costumes I picked up on clearance at Target years ago. I was so surprised when my daughter chose this costume to wear for our church’s Trunk or Treat this year. The whole nerdy look was her idea, and I have to say, she rocks it!
She even swiped some of the masking tape from my DIY furniture projects to “nerdy up” her glasses!
Nerdy 50s Girl wears:
- Black Chucks (Converse All Star hand me downs from her brother) Free(ish) retail at about $30
- Nerdy glasses (old 3D movie theater glasses) Free — also used for Hipster Dorothy
- White lace bike shorts (Target clearance) $4 — also used for Hipster Dorothy
- Tall white socks (Target clearance) $2 — also used for Hipster Dorothy
- 50s Girl costume (Target Clearance 2010) $3
- Potential to be the next Kristen Wiig — Priceless!
Total cost to me: $9 (unless you count the shoes that I bought for my son in 2009 for about $30, and the hour’s worth of elbow grease it took me to make them look new again!)
It’s finally here! My favorite month of the year! Ever since I was a little girl, I have LOVED the month of October. The weather in Tampa cooled off, my mom would make me a Halloween costume, and my elementary school had its yearly Halloween Carnival. Those were the days.
There’s another reason why I love October…it’s the month that the idea of AquaSeventy6 was born. This year, AquaSeventy6 celebrates its 2 year anniversary, and I have SO MUCH in store for you!
First I will be holding weekly FLASH GIVEAWAYS on my Facebook page! What is a Flash Giveaway? Without prior notice, I will announce that a giveaway is in full swing and how long you have to enter. FB fans have to do something simple to enter (“like” a particular update, post a comment, share the page, etc.) The following morning, I will list everyone who has followed the rules (making sure they are a follower, of course) assign them a number, and have Random.org choose the winning entry which will be announced on my FB page. Easy peasy!!
On the last week of October, I will be holding a HUGE giveaway…more details will be announced soon, so make sure you follow me on Facebook for the most up-to-date information.
I wanted to share some items I’ve created in honor of my favorite month of the year…
Even though I don’t normally create many holiday-specific items items, I can’t help myself when it comes to Halloween!
There is more to come, so stick around! xx
