What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

Every year we host the neighborhood Halloween party and to remind everyone, my mannequin dresses up as she holds a sign.

Of course all of her outfits are found at a thrift store.

I didn’t really think it was that big of deal until last year I had at least 30 cars (that I saw) stop by our front yard, roll down their car window and take a picture with their phone.  I am surprised she didn’t go viral!

The funny thing is that I have had neighbors that I have never met, ask me if I am dressing up my mannequin this year.

A few months ago, while thrifting, I found her costume for this year.   Can’t wait to show you!!!! (on Halloween)

 

Rita Garcia, with FOX26 Houston News, wore the witch outfit for one of our segments and I have to say she looks STUNNING!!!

Everyone loves the silly little minions in Despicable Me!

Minions!

Minions!

 

As I was watching the movie, cracking up at the minions,

I was thinking about how to make a minion costume using thrift store finds.

 

Despicable Me 2 … I have seen it twice since it came out a week ago!

Pinterest had some great ideas!

This was my favorite minion costume that I found on Pinterest

It seems thrift stores are full of overalls, but if you wait until the week before Halloween to put your costume together you might not find what you want.   Buy off season … I found this pair of overalls for $1.75 this week.

 

This was another cute idea!
