You weren’t planning for this, but it happened. Halloween is just around the corner, parties are looming on your calendar and you still don’t have a costume.

There’s no need to stress. Suncoast Hospice Resale Shops have you covered. We dusted off our pop culture knowledge and combed through the clothing racks to find last minute costumes ranging from iconic to cult classic. The best part is these costumes can be put together for $25 or less.

Here’s what we found:

  • Where’s Waldo: A red-and-white striped t-shirt with a pair of jeans is iconic and comfortable. Accessorize with glasses and whatever else you desire.
  • 1920s Flapper: Pop the champagne and live out your Great Gatsby dreams in a vintage-inspired, sparkly drop-waist dress.
  • Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park: A salmon-color blouse, blue tank top and khaki shorts make for a dino-mite costume. Halloween, uh, finds a way.
  • Molly McIntire from The American Girl doll collection: A smart sweater and A-line skirt in patriotic colors will have everyone asking how your victory garden is doing. Complete the look with a felt beret and braids.

These simple costumes are creative, recognizable and so versatile. Once the party is over, give these pieces extra life by incorporating them into your everyday wardrobe.

Not quite your everyday style? That’s okay too. Keep the sustainable circle going and support your community by donating gently used clothing and other items from your closet to the Suncoast Hospice Resale Shop for someone else to love.
