This past week I asked to be challenged to go out to find certain things while thrifting! One of the challenges was to go out and find a Halloween costume! So, I decided to go out and find a “Home-made” costume and one that was store-made. The items that I bought were only $14. If you were to go out and buy either of these costumes at a Halloween store I promise you will spend over $30. I personally think “Home-made” costumes are always so much cuter and original!
My “Home-made” costume if you couldn’t tell was inspired by Rosie the Riveter! I love her! Plus, her look is simple, and everyone will be able to tell what you are. I did add some of my own clothing in this. But, I bought the things that you also may have to go out to purchase! I bought the jean shirt and the “headband” for my first look! I looked all around Goodwill to see if they had Rosie’s signature red and white polka dotted headband but… I didn’t have any luck. So, I thought outside of the box and went to look in the men’s tie area and bought one that was super close to Rosie’s! Underneath of the jean shirt I just wore a basic V-neck and Jeans with combat boots! I feel like Rosie would wear these two things, especially because they were not the “norm” for women of her time.
Next, for my store bought costume I found this adorable lady bug costume! Please guess how much it was… If you guess $10, then you were correct. I was bummed that Goodwill did not have any antennas. 🙁 But I left the cute red headband on. But, if I were to wear this on Halloween I would go out and buy antennas to complete my look. On the back of the costume there are cute little wings!
I love both of these costumes but, I have to say that I love my Rosie the Riveter one a little bit more! 🙂
I hope you all will think about Thrifting your Halloween costumes this year, I promise it will save you an arm and a leg! I would love to see the costumes that you all find! Please share the pictures with me on Facebook on my page Defining Danie or on Twitter/Instagram @Danieminor13!
