Original Title: Need some help... With clothings or costumes

Hi All,

Does anyone know where I can get cow boy hat and a vest? Best is if it is not pricey as it's for DS1's graduation performance... So prob use once and wont be using again type.

Thanks in advance. :wink:

ZaCk,

Halloween's near, you may want to try Toys'R Us for the hat. For vest, some of the fancier shops have them in leather or mock leather...not to fret.

DW asked me to check with the teacher to see if she knows where to get and perhaps see if the teacher will "volunteer" their school props if they have... But not checked with the teacher yet :oops:

I saw cowboy hat and vest at Metro some time back. It's with the children clothes, near the formal wear for kids.

I think there are some larger departmental stores which may have what you want.

The costume rental shops are now near arab street. There's one at aliwal street with a wide range of costumes, but it is quite pricey, depending on what you want, usually it's not less than 50 bucks
