Secondhand Halloween: My Madeline Costume


Ethical Details: Jacket, dress, blouse, sash, socks, and hat  – thrifted; Shoes – Frye

I love making costumes out of secondhand and thrifted goods because it forces me to get creative. I find no joy in buying a pre-made costume when I can hunt for the perfect details at charity shops.

I picked up this hat, which I’ve affectionately been calling my Madeline hat, last year in California. It’s what inspired this costume. I purchased the rest of my outfit at a local thrift shop. Not a perfect match with Madeline’s swing coat, but I could still see her wearing it.

See how Madeline wore it here.


Happy Halloween!
