Dressing Up and Having Fun with BuyCostumes.com



One of the things I miss about living in the San Francisco Bay Area is being able to find that perfect outfit for any cultural event.  Nothing like shopping in Berkeley for agbadas, Hayward for kaftans, and San Francisco or Oakland's Chinatown districts for kimonos. Now that hubby and I are living closer to the Midwest, shopping has it's challenges.  Several years ago, a friend turned me on to costume shops to find those one of a kind outfits at a reasonable price.  Costumes? Yes, costumes.

One of my new fave online costume stores is buycostumes.com.  Buycostumes.com has costumes for the entire family and feature some rather exquisite, yet affordable, wares.  Take this Adult Geisha costume I ordered.

Priced at only $26.99 what a great way to make an entrance at last month's Lantern Festival Fundraiser.  The costume came complete with obi belt, chopsticks and a fan.  All eyes were on me and I felt absolutely beautiful. 

My girls and I danced the night away and the costume is so nice hubby even asked me to wear it out to dinner one night.  I was a little surprised but had a few people asking me where I bought my lovely kimono and when I told them it was a costume of course, "Oh wow, I never thought of that" was their response.  Thinking out of the box saves money.  


I've already got my eyes on one for the little old lady.  I know she'd be absolutely adorable in this Teal Dragon Child's costume and since it's from buycostumes.com not only is is affordable and stylish, but it's adorable.  I should note the pants and shoes don't come with this costume but at $24.99 what a deal.

So, change up your wardrobe and check out buycostumes.com for something special.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
