Take home the Halloween prize with ‘Golden Girls’ costumes

Chris Pastrick
Target is offering “Golden Girls” Halloween costumes — Sophia, Rose, Dorothy and Blanche — on its website.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
