Remember our special challenge last week? For you guys to share your awesome Halloween costumes that are thrifted or contain thrifted elements?
Well today, we are excited to feature the awesome costumes you shared - and hey – if you haven’t shared one yet, you can absolutely still join in the fun!
- You can share any thrifty finds with us – whether they hail from a thrift store, Craigslist, estate sale, garage sale, side of the road, or apartment dumpster! The fun, the funny, the awesome, the odd - this hashtag party is open to all!
- Feel free to use #thriftscorethursday any day of the week! We'll be keeping up with the hashtag all week long to find our favorites for the following Thursday.
- Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession and I will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
Our guest host this week is the lovely Corinna from For My Love Of once more, but she actually won’t be a guest host for much longer…
Because she’s joining us as our FOURTH awesome permanent #thriftscorethursday host next week!
I’m so excited to have her energetic, thrift-loving self on board with us and I know you’ll love seeing her thrifty finds and features each week!
Now, are you ready for our Halloween-tastic features?
*Warning: you just might die of cuteness overload from this next photo…
Amber from Restless Arrow (Instagram: restlessarrow) shared her son’s $5 (!!!) DIY thrifted pirate costume!
Shannon from An Inspired Nest (Instagram: aninspirednest) shared the details on these two adorable Minecraft and Ninja Turtle costumes she whipped up using thrifted t-shirts and a few Dollar Store items!
Finally, Gretchen from Boxy Colonial (Instagram: boxycolonial) played a guessing game to see if anyone could guess which lesser-known character from the Legend of Zelda series her son is dressing up as for Halloween… Even my huge-Zelda-fan husband couldn’t guess at first, but check out the reveal - Gretchen and her son certainly did an awesome job on his costume! (He’s Rusl from Twilight Princess.)
Our Zelda-loving household gives this four thumbs (and eight cat paws) up!
Today, you are in for part 2 of “Things I Didn’t Buy At The Thrift Store” because apparently last time some of you were surprised that there was ever anything I didn’t take home and stuff into my increasingly hoarderesque home… Frankly, I think you a) overestimated my house’s square footage and storage capabilities and b) underestimated my self-control which I can, surprisingly, exert at times… even for brass animals occasionally*…
*although not recently
For starters, I didn’t pick up this fun piece of geometric art (I think it was actually sand art), although I am now regretting that fact. Should have bought it and painted the frame white!
This little vintage mushroom clock was a bit too kitschy for my taste, but pretty fun and adorable nonetheless. I hope it found a good home!
There were several unopened packages of these adorable handmade paper heart notepads on the shelf…
Who even knows why they had been donated?!
Finally, in the name of #thriftscorethursday (and Halloween, and science…), I have to share this one last snapshot with you.
It was a fluffy fleecy zebra set – trench coat and pants. It was in the costume section of the store, but I’m going to go ahead and say wasn’t designed as an actual costume, because it had real clothing labels inside…
You guys, they were comfy. I kinda wish I had bought them.
Because you know what would have made this #thriftscorethursday post even better?
If I had written it while sitting here lounging in my COMFY ZEBRA PANTSUIT.
I rest my case.
So now it’s your turn! What did or didn’t you buy at the thrift store recently? Any one else have any thrifty Halloween costumes to share?
Be sure to check out the finds features from my awesome cohosts Trisha, Cassie & Corinna!
