Halloween Costumes and Vintage at Conroe Assistance League

Halloween Costumes and Vintage at Conroe Assistance League

Halloween clothing is now available at Assistance League.  One of my favorite things about this store is that they save items all year long for the appropriate season, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, etc.   I found some awesome vintage clothing, authentic 70’s and pageant inspired clothing … perfect for a DIY costume.

What the Mannequin wore for Halloween … Sorry I left you hanging 🙂

I needed a break from blogging for a few days and forgot to post the mannequin!  So sorry but thank you for all the messages.

She was a sexy witch this year and unfortunately the poster is covering up her skirt 🙂

I did have a little boy lift up her dress to see what was underneath it and then of course the dad had to follow suit.

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!!!

I love a Halloween party with a “theme”, it makes dressing up in a ridiculous costume seem somewhat normal.

Despicable Me 2 ~ Minions Halloween Costume Thrift Store Style

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!
