What a fun era to dress up from! Think Valley Girl, Top Gun, Ghost Busters, Flash Dance, leg warmers, mullet wigs and heavy metal rockers. To make this frugal be sure to check out thrift stores.
This is super simple to make and all you need is two supply items: fabric and thread. These costumes can be really frugal if you have left over fabric lying around.
Dress-up as your favorite television show couple. In the picture shown is Dewdrop75’s (Mommysavers forum member) sister and brother-in-law dressed up as Earl and Joy.

Head to your nearest thrift store and look for items such as orthopedic shoes, canes, and loungewear. Check for wigs, flashy clothing and add some extra padding to complete the look.

- Mouse & Cheese Couple – Take a square of yellow/orange costume felt, cut a hole for your head, and a triangular piece that you tie on your head like a bandana. The other person can wear black with ears and draw on a little mouse nose. Thanks, swishina!
