Recently my drama teacher has taken initiative on cleaning out the costume department that has been growing exponentially in the last 30-40 years.
On Saturday I went to help with the clean-up, which consisted of sorting clothes into a pile of clothes to throw away, several piles to give away, clothes to be sold, and clothes that had to be put back.
From this, I acted a garbage collector and took home a truckload of clothes. (yes, I did take from the throw-away pile)
Anyways I now have lots o' lucious vintage. Ariel was also there. She found a box of sequined sailor costumes and wore it the whole time we were there. She looked exactly like Sailor Moon, but with black hair and more like a human being.
I gave 1/3 of it to Gato because I can't break up with most of it. But I'm really happy with everything and even better, it was FREE, that's right crazy dogggz, free!

Lace dress - Drama for sale section
I couldn't get any good pictures of it, but this dress is my favorite thing I got. Even though it was on one of the for-sale racks, I got it fo free sucka! Not stealing, just payment for helping organize.

I think I'm going to turn these boxers into a skirt
There's also the stuff I gave to Gato and the stuff I didn't picture:
- gold wonder woman belt
- pair grey suede pumpls
- pair black leather sandal wedges
- sequined sailor costume
- green striped taffeta skirt
- fuschia cotton dress
- grey, white, pink cotton sundress

It was a pretty good collection this time. Still debating whether or not I'll buy anything on the annual springtime Haight-Ashbury vintage outing.
Also I'm still trying to find ways to modernize all the great vintage I got from my granpere and his wife.
