Goodwill (and Ozzie Dots) Halloween!

October 26, 2008

Am I the only one out there that loves this commercial?  I’ve been singing it all weekend much to the chagrin of dudeguy.  He’ll get over it and will probably start singing it himself.  Comedy.

This is actually the first Halloween that I’ve gone to Goodwill to find things.  Shocking?  I know.  If you’re still  looking for costumes or costume supplements, find your nearest location and GO!  Anyone hurting from the recession or who doesn’t want to wear a stock sexed-up cartoon character/sports figure/public servant, should at least browse one for 20 minutes.  You will find something you can work with.

In my favorite GW on Hollywood Blvd and without much effort, I managed to find the ever elusive hot pink blazer.  Sure it’s not an exact replica, but it’ll do:

For the balance of my costume, I walked down the street to Ozzie Dots.  If you’re in L.A. and have never been here, you REALLY need to go.  The prices are extremely competitive and they have tons of costumes organized by genre and decade.  I came away with a blue wig and some striped tights.

Ozzie Dots

4637 Hollywood Blvd

(right next to my favorite bookstore/gallery/novelty shop – La Luz de Jesus)

All in all, I spent about $25 for my entire costume.  This pales in comparison to the Vanity fiasco of 2007 where I spent about $140, everyone thought I was Tina Turner instead of an obscure 80’s pop singer turned evangelist, and I wasn’t able to wear anything again.

Halloween 2007 - slutty, slutty!

Something tells me that blazer is going to be seen well past Halloween night.  Maybe even before.  Shoulder pads and all.

We’ve got about a week left and I can’t wait to see/hear about everyone’s costumes!  Party plans anyone?

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    You must post pictures of you in your costume. That jacket is very vintage Chanel. Great finds.

    Yes, the first thing I thought of when I saw the blazer was Chanel. And you were almost unrecognizable in your pic = )
