It’s COSTUME time! We wanted to go with a little theme of movies we loved while growing up and how to get an at-home super easy costume out of it. We have three sets of costumes to share, and we’ll be posting the throughout the rest of the week! First up, The Sandlot! We’ll spare you the incessant quoting, but we will warn you if you haven’t seen this coming of age baseball flick, you’re missing out. So many good one-liners and memorable scenes, but who can forget the (temporarily) unrequited love Michael “Squints” Palledorous had for Wendy Peffercorn, a much older pool lifeguard and all-around hottie.
Here’s how you can put this together at home!
A thick white headband, white Cat-Eye Sunglasses, a gingham dress (we scored this one at Whirliss an awesome vintage Etsy shop (grab a 10% off coupon below!) and a little coy attitude and you’ve got Wendy down pat.
For Squints: An open button-down shirt, a white undershirt, cuffed denim (via Rowen Christian Couture), some high-top Chuck Taylors, and some Wayfarers (try either the fake reader style or pop the lenses out of the sunglass version!) and you’ve got yourself Squints!
This couple’s costume is so good, and of course can be scaled up for adults, no problem. Check back Thursday and Friday for the rest of our favorite childhood movies turned kid costumes!
