Thrift Store Cosplay Day 11 #MyFirstHanks

Day 11: Forrest Gump I think Forrest Gump was my very first Tom Hanks movie. Or at least the one I remember seeing first. They say you never forget your first Hanks…well, they should say that! Because Tom is a national treasure. He’s one of those actors that is beloved by all. And if youContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 11 #MyFirstHanks”

Day 10: Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice When I was in the 10th grade, I was supposed to read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but I totally didn’t. I bought the cliff notes and actually…didn’t even read those. I think I got an F…I definitely deserved an F! But worse thanContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 10”

Day 9: Fairy Godmother from Disney’s Cinderella (1950) Everyone’s always giving all the love to the Disney Princesses, ok…I know…me included.  But what about the supporting characters who make the Princesses’ stories happen. Like…for example…Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother. We don’t know much about her, but we know that without her Cinderella would be up a creekContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 9”

Day 8: Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road It usually takes a while for a character to really cement themselves as a favorite on my coveted list of favorites. There has to be many viewings and lots of You Tube montage videos must be watched. It’s a whole process. But I gotta tell you,Continue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 8”

Day 7: Rapunzel from Tangled Today’s thrift store cosplay is a minimalist version of Disney’s Rapunzel. It’s more of a bounding, if you will. For those of you who have never heard of Disney bounding…look it up. It’s a simple way of representing your favorite characters at work, at Disney…basically anywhere you are, and stillContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 7”

Day 6: Amazon from Themyscira Ok, I could have gone the Wonder Woman route or even done a faithful adaptation of Antiope or Hippolyta, but since I truly believe that I belong among the Amazons of Themyscira, I did my own take on it. I don’t want to have someone else’s look when I finallyContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 6”

Day 4: Spongebob Squarepants There will a few times in this series where I will stray from my coveted vow of only using thrift store, consignment, resale and vintage clothing. Sometimes I’ll use things from my closet purchased long ago or I’ll turn to the closets of those closest to me, my mom, my dad,Continue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 4”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 3

Day 3: Dory from Finding Nemo & Finding Dory Full confession, i didn’t see Finding Nemo when it first came out in theaters back in 2003. And by the time I finally did see it, the movie had been over recommended to me and hyped so much that actually watching it was a bit ofContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 3”

Day 2: Where’s Waldo I don’t know about you, but Where’s Waldo has long been a favorite children’s book series of mine. I always think, going into a Where’s Waldo hunt, that it’s going to be easy to find him. But dang, Waldo is one sneaky dude!! Hopefully I’m a little easier to find thanContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 2”
