    Halloween Costume help

    Ok. So, I need to find some beards and old timey hats to go as the Soggy Bottom Boys. The rest of the outfits are complete. Has anybody noticed such things (preferably in Ankeny) in the Des Moines area???

    The Theatrical Shop in Des Moines/Valley Junction has everything that you need when it comes to costumes.

    Re: Halloween Costume help

    Go as a satellite dish installer outfit and use Wayne for the nameplate.

    Go a Herky speed bump with a tire track up your back.

    Go as a two headed qb monster with AA and PB (scratch that - one retired)

    Go as Cy and do the evolution dance when asked if you have some tricks.

    Go as Tough Rain and bring lots of stupid signs.

    Go as Biden and wear a muzzle (scratch that - too sensitive).

    Go as Hank Paulson and tell them you are here to buy their house.

    Go as Paris and tell them you are running for President.

    I actually found some beards at the Card Factory Outlet in Ankeny. Now, I just need a couple of old man hats. Not really in the mood to drive way out to Valley Junction and fight through a million people. Though, I agree that's the best place...

    Burlington Coat Factory has the cap style ones, but I don't know about the others. . .

    I did Goodwill, but I have a feeling it's been picked through. May try Salvation Army yet...

    The power of CF! I googled soggy bottom boys costume, and this thread came up like 5th or 6th in the search. Not terribly helpful, but interesting nonetheless!

    Go as Mike Singletary and walk around with your pants down.
