To all the witches, zombies, and other costume artists out there: You are fabulous! Today’s Good News: We’ve received over 50 entries that showed your creativity, individuality, and “thriftiness”. Visit our Facebook Page to see all submissions.
This morning the top three contest entries were chosen by a panel of Goodwill employees. It was a hard choice, but so much fun! The top three costumes are:
“Headless Marie Antoinette” – submitted by Misty Valkner, Staunton, VA
The wedding dress and white boots were found at Goodwill. The costume also includes a backpack, styrofoam, fake arms, wooden poles, wig, make-up, and blood. The styrofoam was shaped in the form of shoulders, one end of the poles were inserted into the styrofoam shoulders and the other end into the backpack which I wore under the dress. I placed the dress over the shoulders and cut a whole in the body of the dress so I could put my head through. Finished it off with a wig and some blood and make-up.
“Two-Face” – submitted by Amy Kidd, Charlottesville, VA
Amy purchased her sons suit, button down shirts and ties from Goodwill in Charlottesville. Half of the suit is duck taped and the shirts and ties were cut in half and sewn together.
“Beetlejuice” – submitted by Amanda Nichols, Rocky Mount VA
Everything was purchased from their local Goodwill in Rocky Mount. They took plain black suit and painted it with white stripes. They purchased a long sleeve mens dress shirt and black tie. They placed stuffing from a pillow in the stomach area. Wearing the costume is Sarah Williams.
