Guys, things escalated quickly. Something that should have been a simple “closet cosplay,” using things I already own, has turned into a monster. I made the mistake of looking up her wardrobe which is super easy to do thanks to the internet. The main source I’ve been using is Pradux. It’s basically a website where people have ID’d clothing used in shows and movies and what not. This is where everything went to hell. If you take this and combine it with Ebay or Poshmark, it’s very easy to fall down the rabbit hole and try and fine screen accurate items. Now, I don’t know if what I’ve found was used in the episode/look I’m going with, but I know they were used on the show. That’s enough for me. Now let’s see what I’ve managed to get my hands on already!
Happy Cow Hip Bag (Ebay): $74.28 (including shipping)
Hudson Beth Baby Bootcut Jeans (Poshmark): $22.69 (including shipping) // These jeans are normally $200! Are they real? I assume they are but I honestly don’t even care at this point! They fit perfectly expect for the fact I’ll need to cut 5 feet off of the bottoms.
UGG Callia Wedge (Poshmark): $31.80 (Free Shipping) // I know these are real and normally around $130. Sure, they’re used but are actually in pretty decent shape!
D&G Sunglasses (Ebay): $72.04 (including International shipping) // Believe it or not, these were hard to track down because I needed brown, not black. Luckily I came across an International seller on Ebay that had exactly what I needed. Normally these are around $110 I think.
Chan Luu Wrap Bracelet (Ebay): $37.10 (Free Shipping) // This was easy to track down but finding a deal was the hard part. These bracelets are normally in the $200 range and even the listings I came across on Poshmark or Ebay were still higher than I wanted to pay. I must have checked at the right time because when I saw this deal, I jumped on it!
As you can see I’ve already spent around $237 on this thing and I haven’t even bought a wig yet. At the same time though, I’ve saved a lot on these name brands. Let’s be real, I couldn’t get “normal” jeans for $15 unless I waited for a kick ass sale at Target or Old Navy. The hip bag I knew was going to be a cost but I did save a few bucks by going with Ebay plus I think on the Happy Cow website some of the colors were back ordered. I knew the sunglasses were probably going to be a little expensive. I could have just went with a random pair but I got sucked into the hunt. I almost gave up on the bracelet because of the high prices but I guess it pays to stalk Ebay! The only thing left is a wig and I’ve found the perfect one I think. It’s a steal too at around $15. The last piece of the puzzle is the tee which will be done on a super budget. Basically just using a basic white tee and an iron on transfer.
