Shopping Secrets: Garb for Ghouls

15 Sep

Well, not really JUST for ghouls, but on a whim, I scoped out the new costumes available at It’s A Wrap on Robertson Blvd this past weekend, to see what goodies had their way to the store.

It’s a Wrap carries wardrobe and props that movie studios no longer need. Currently, there’s a ton of Prince of Persia stuff (stinky leather & gauntlets! yay!), Armour, and period coats and gowns available, along with a selection of the old standards from TV shows, such as cheerleader outfits, police uniforms, native American garb, and the like.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s in stock there, and my favorites!

This glittery masterpiece was $300. Over the Rainbow indeed! Didn't check which show this was used on because it was so high up!

Pearly boobies anyone? There were a lot of harem girl-type outfits here. Perfect for any "sexy" version of anything! Or just for wearing out. Vavoom!

Such a cute pink, low backed corslet! It was only $18 so I got it ❤ Excuse the cowgirl skirt. I was considering going as a cowboy to an "Indian Summer" party this weekend haha.

Lots of pretty period costumes for men and women! Some of the prices for the historical stuff can be kinda steep though, ranging from $130 and upwards, but if you're into these outfits the quality on most of them was very good (not super torn up, etc).

Leftover gauntlets from Prince of Persia.There was a ton of armour and boots from the film still available, some slightly stinking of the men who wore them last, woo hoo!

You can see the colors in this photo, but this was a beautiful iridescent material that was blue, pink, and cream colored. I wanted to be a fairyyyy! haha. Couldn't justify the purchase, but the dress was $30 and is probably still there if anyone wants it.

Outside in the back they had racks and racks of crazy costumes that were more out there. Check out this fancy jacket. I hated it and loved it at the same time.

This pretty little outfit was so cute! unfortunately, it was made for a tiny dancer type of lady and did not fit on my gigundo ribcage haha.

There were tons more outfits available, so if you’re pondering what to be for Halloween, you may as well hit it up instead of buying those ugly bagged slutty slut costumes that you usually see at the costume store! They have multiple locations, Burbank being the biggest, so make sure you stop by!
