Take home the Halloween prize with ‘Golden Girls’ costumes
Just like Betty White herself, the love for “The Golden Girls” just goes on and on and on and …
Well, you get the idea.
And before you make your costume commitment for that big Halloween party, you need to realize what’s for sale.
That’s right: “Golden Girls” costumes — Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia, the original pals and confidants. They were available for a while on Target’s website, but they seem to have sold out already. As of Friday morning, the costumes were still for sale through Toynk.com.
Feeling a bit free-spirited? How about going as the lusty Southern belle Blanche. The $68.99 costume includes a “red sleeveless v-neck jumpsuit with Velcro front closure, floral patterned blazer featuring shoulder pads and Velcro front closure, gold costume jewelry clip on earrings and costume jewelry necklace.” A wig isn’t included.
Or maybe you’re feeling more like a leader. You’re a strong-willed Dorothy. Her $68.99 outfit includes a “black-and-white patterned blazer with attached white shirt and Velcro closure, black pants with elastic waist, gold lame scarf, oval costume jewelry clip on earrings.” Again, no wig.
Perhaps you are feeling a bit spacey. Then Rose is your gal. Her costume — a bargain at only $53.99 — is a “floral print dress with zipper back closure, faux pearl necklace & matching faux pearl clip on earrings.”
And finally, for the smartmouths out there, there’s Sophia. Her $68.99 costume includes a “floral print dress with zipper back closure and attached broach, glasses with faux pearl glasses chain.”
All costumes are polyester.
Now, if you want the wigs — that’s another $23.99. Although you can get all four for $78.99.
So, if someone throws a party — and invites everyone they know — then you need to bring the biggest gift by finding yourself three friends up for a group project.
