Bringing in the big guns, as I approach the end of August and the end of my #thriftstorecosplay series. I hope you guys have been enjoying these as much as I have!! You know what I just realized the other day, I have 31+ costumes to choose from for Halloween this year!! Win, win, win!
Which leads me to think I might need to regenerate a mini version of this series in October leading into Halloween. But I don’t want to come up with the ideas on my own this time. I’ll be running polls and taking suggestions and maybe come up with a 10 day countdown as Halloween approaches. So if you have any cosplays you want to see me attempt in the days leading up to Halloween, you can tweet me, comment on Instagram, comment here on the blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or maybe there’s a cosplay I did this series that you think would make the very best Halloween costume this year. Maybe you think I should take it to the streets, let me know!!
And in the meantime, here is my Mart McFly for your viewing pleasure!
Personally, I’m a Gryffindor. So when I found this shirt in Goodwill, I knew I had to have it, not only for my personal closet of items to wear on a daily basis, but also for this series! I already had Harry Potter glasses in my cosplay closet and my wand from Ollivander’s Wand Shop at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.
Funny story…last time I was at the Wizarding World, I went into Ollivander’s with my friends Erin and Cristina, fully expecting an exuberant child to be picked by Ollivander to do the wand choosing portion of the experience at the store. There I was, in the front row with the biggest grin on my face at least a foot or two taller than the little children eagerly wanting to be chosen by Mr. Ollivander. But one look at me and Mr. Ollivander stopped in front of me, gave me an quizzical look and then proceeded to pick me…ME!!! Sure, some of you might say…”let the children do it instead,” but if Mr. Ollivander chose you, you’d forget that you were an adult and run up to the counter in anticipation of your first REAL wand too…wouldn’t you? No? Just me? Well, regardless…that is the story of where I got my wand!! The end!
Aladdin is one of my all time favorite Disney movies. It’s neck and neck with Lion King for me. I must have watched it over 1,000 times as a kid and still continue to watch it as an adult (though since the death of Robin Williams it’s been much harder to watch it without crying uncontrollably!)
Which is your favorite Disney movie? We all have one (or 4.)
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 than Waldo is!
