- We try to use things we already have.
- If we need something to complete the costume we check out thrift stores.
- If there is a specific costume we want, we search to buy it used.

Pick a Decade
Put your hair in a ponytail, make a headband from a handkerchief, and add a denim shirt to be Rosie the Riveter or some other 50s variation.. Guys can roll their jeans and t shirt sleeves and slick their hair back. Or straighten your hair and pair it with some flowy tops to go 60s or 70s. If that doesn’t appeal to you how about finding some big jewelry and laying that blush and eye shadow on thick to go 80s? Easy Peasy.
