Inexpensive costume idea- I think I have skills!


Halloween is coming soon, y’all. Being the SAHM I am right now a $3,000 costume isn’t in my budget, so, I tell my little diva as we are watching “Pitch Perfect” (yes- we are some serious addicts, love music movies…. We just love music) that perhaps we should get some ideas from Pinterest for inspiration. My darlin’ Kens graciously agrees… (Score for Momma because the kid is an only child with everything she could imagine!) When people ask her what she wants for birthday or Christmas and she says “I have everything I need, just call me & tell me you love me and that is good enough.” I am SO blessed to have such a humble youngin’!

Anyways, our inspiration from Pinterest was this:
Here again folks, cute costume, wasn’t willing to pay $35.00 for it though…. So, me being this newfound thrifty momma (haven’t always been like this, use to, if I wanted I had, period. That was the end of it… Amazing how life changes when you turn 30, or, hmmm, 25 again….)

So- Kensie and I drove over to Walmart found leggings & a shirt for like $9/ish TOTAL with tax, then, we were done, take a look. She will wear her normal tennis shoes & we are calling this costume “80’s Cali Girl”. K came up with the name. Jewelry was my costume jewelry from high school, at least someone is using it.


So- what do y’all think? Does this city girl have a knack or what? (Here’s a hint- I was a musical theater student in high school.) πŸ™‚

Until next time!

I am a wife and momma, sweet tea drinking, southern woman. I am very opinionated and do speak my mind and sometimes I am wrong but don't tell the hubs, lol. I will always be Daddy's little girl even though he passed away at age 46 from melanoma stage 4 skin cancer. My momma is the strongest woman I know and she loves me no matter what. I am blessed to be surrounded by a great variety of people from different walks of my life but they are always there for me. My baby girl is just like me. Fireball in the making.... lol. Not all who wander are lost....

    • Thank you, T!! The only problem we had was when I started singing “Material Girl” she said “Momma, what the crap are you singing?” Literally almost started crying- instantly broke open laptop to youtube & entered Madonna… this generation cannot NOT know who Madonna is, really???

  1. AWESOME!!! This one takes me straight back to the glorious 80s!! She has nailed the attitude and body language, too!! it’s like…totally tubular!! Well done!! –Lisa

  2. Very rad. And she can wear the shirt (and leggings, maybe?) after Halloween is over. Remember this black rubber bracelets? Those would be the cherry on top of this costume.

    • Awwwwww! Thank you Lauren! She has her diva days but I am very blessed for her to be as humble as she is, it’s all in the raising is what my Momma always told me, so, I imagine you will be just fine! Happy Monday!!!
