Thrift Store Cosplay Day 28

Day 28: JEM from JEM and the Holograms Out of all the characters I’ve chosen to cosplay this month, JEM is the one who is nearest and dearest to my heart. I used to watch the cartoon when I was a kid and dream of the day I could have pink hair and be aContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 28”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 24

Day 24: GLOW This is one of my new favorite shows from Netflix this year. A show about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, set in the 80’s (my favorite era!) If you haven’t seen this show yet, you should. I didn’t chose a specific character to cosplay, I sort of did an homage to theContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 24”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 17

Day 17: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz Aside from being the 17th day in my Thrift Store Cosplay series, it also happens to be National Thrift Store Day. And I didn’t even plan it that way! August was clearly the month that this series was meant to be in! To celebrate this occasion, IContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 17”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 16

Day 16: Harry Potter 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 wandContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 16”

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 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”
