Today I am grateful for thrift store bed spreads. I figure if I posted yesterday’s costume where I looked like a complete lunatic, I must also post a picture from a long, long time ago where I rocked Mae West pretty well.
It was a surprise party for Himself before we were married. . .and he married me anyway. We actually did Mae and WC Fields a few times and as he got older he rocked WC a little better, too. Can’t find those pictures.
When I showed this to him he told me how much he loved that costume. It was a bedspread I got at a thrift store. I cut it and literally sewed it on my body while I had it on. The capped sleeves are real mink from a coat collar that was also for sale at the thrift store, sans the coat. Voila! A costume.
I hope everyone is out there having a wonderful time trick or treating. I know people hate to keep running to the door, but it sure is something I miss since we live in Geezerland and no one comes here. I love seeing all of the creativity with thrift store bed spreads that are made into great costumes.
