Nerdy 50s Girl {Putting a Twist on a Store Bought Halloween Costume}

As you saw in yesterday's post, I can't be happy with a store bought costume as is. We always add a little twist.  Today I present to you:

Nerdy 50's Girl:


This is another one of those costumes I picked up on clearance at Target years ago. I was so surprised when my daughter chose this costume to wear for our church's Trunk or Treat this year. The whole nerdy look was her idea, and I have to say, she rocks it!


She even swiped some of the masking tape from my DIY furniture projects to "nerdy up" her glasses!

Nerdy 50s Girl wears:

  • Black Chucks (Converse All Star hand me downs from her brother) Free(ish) retail at about $30
  • Nerdy glasses (old 3D movie theater glasses) Free -- also used for Hipster Dorothy
  • White lace bike shorts (Target clearance) $4 -- also used for Hipster Dorothy
  • Tall white socks (Target clearance) $2 -- also used for Hipster Dorothy
  • 50s Girl costume (Target Clearance 2010) $3
  • Potential to be the next Kristen Wiig -- Priceless!
Total cost to me: $9 (unless you count the shoes that I bought for my son in 2009 for about $30, and the hour's worth of elbow grease it took me to make them look new again!)
