Of course you are. Check out The Alley's costume sale this weekend.
A friend of mine recently informed me that I will be Sylvia Fine, Fran Drescher's mom in "The Nanny," for Halloween this year. Not because she thinks I can pull off the eccentric character, but because another friend of ours can perfectly mimic the Nanny's grating laugh and will be going to Highball as Fran Fine. A night filled with shoulder pads, gold lame and Auqanet? Oy, please.
If you're still looking for a costume, stop by The Alley vintage clothing store in Dublin (3498 W. Dublin Granville Rd.) this Saturday for a Tea Party and sale of intricate Halloween costumes - from pirates to cowboys, Scarlet O'Hara to flapper girls.
This weekend will mark the introduction of The Alley's Zombie Wear line, as well. (The shop's owner, Kit Matulich, is a professional costumer.) The line includes "vintage clothing distressed and worked over to make the perfect zombie costume," she said, like those in the photos above.The event is tomorrow, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and refreshments are free, donations will be made to Easter Seals, and a makeup artist will be on hand to give tips on how to create the best look with whatever costume you get, helping your Halloween go smooth… like buttah.
