Here’s our last costume inspired by our favorite movies growing up, we’re sad to see this fun little Halloween series go! Say Anything is just about as old as we are, and still such a classic.

We have three sets of costumes to share, and we’ll be posting the throughout the rest of the week! First up, The Sandlot!
