Amelias are hot s**t right now. There’s me, of course, and then there’s Amelia Earhart, the legendary female aviator who will be immortalized in a movie starring Hilary Swank later this year. Amelia’s style was already super fierce and I love a costume that allows me to buy pieces that I could wear again. Check out how I would rock her high-flying style on the cheap(ish), after the jump, but know you could always spend more on some of these pieces so they last a lifetime. Keep reading »
Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life.

Would you believe some of these costumes are already sold out?! Keep reading »

I bought a long, red trench at a thrift store a couple years ago, and, without fail, I get called Carmen Sandiego every time I wear it. Dressing up as your favorite educational villain is simple if you already own a red trench — or want to buy one to wear on days other than Halloween. And if you’re not into forking over 50 bucks for a coat you’ll wear once, the Salvation Army is always a good place to start your search. Keep reading »
