Thrift Store Cosplay Day 14

Day 14: Aladdin 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 watchContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 14”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13

Day 13: Luigi from Super Mario Brothers This one ended up being more of an homage than I originally intended. The first piece of my Luigi cosplay I found was the green overalls. I got excited cause I thought to myself “Look, green overalls…just like Luigi wears!” In my defense I haven’t owned a NintendoContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13”

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”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 9

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”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 8

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”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 6

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 5: Beverly Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation With a brand new Star Trek on the horizon, I’ve been looking back at some of the episodes from my very favorite Star Trek series…The Next Generation. And one of my favorite characters Dr. Beverly Crusher. The constant (and only) shipper for my very favoriteContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 5”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 4

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”
