The only downside of my Halloweens past has always been the paucity of good costumes. Plastic masks and sweatshirts, or “Let’s just tease your hair, you can wear your dad’s leather jacket, and you’ll be a biker chick!” *sigh* But in the Movies, Stage, Radio and TV category of the Prices4Antiques database, we have loads of props and costumes from classic movies and television shows! Do a little searching, use your imagination, and you may come up with a great idea!
Don the buckskin suit and go as Spencer Tracy in Northwest Passage. Loretta Swit’s nursing uniform from M*A*S*H has also been up for grabs, if you think you have what it takes to fill Hot Lips’ shoes. If you’re up for something zany, there’s always Bob Denver’s grass skirt (pictured above) from Gilligan’s Island, or go for the dramatic as a Confederate soldier from Gone With the Wind. If you’re looking for something classy, dig out your pearls and step into Elizabeth Montgomery’s classic couture from Bewitched. If you want a classic ghoulish Halloween costume there’s this black vampire cloak from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Or, if you’re just looking for something comfortable to wear while tagging after the kids, pull on your tennis shoes and go as Eminem in 8 Mile. Jeans and a sweatshirt are always a plus, especially if you don’t have to wear a plastic mask!
