Golden Girls Halloween Costumes Have Arrived at Target
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect Halloween costume idea for a group of four, consider this the end of your search: Target just released a set of Golden Girls costumes.
Each ensemble so closely embodies the style and attitude of its respective member of the clique that it won’t be difficult for you and your friends to fully commit to your chosen characters—once you reach an agreement about which friend corresponds to which Golden Girl, of course.
Voguish Blanche Devereaux, ever the life of the party, sports a bright red, sleeveless jumpsuit and an artsy blazer decorated with vibrant autumn leaves. Though Sophia Petrillo’s respectable floral frock might fool some people into thinking you’re nothing but a sweet old granny, they’ll surely realize their mistake as soon as you start delivering wisecracks from behind her iconic giant-framed eyeglasses.
You can capture Dorothy Zbornak’s no-nonsense nature in black slacks and a black and white patterned blazer, and the gold scarf flung casually over your shoulder will remind people just how sophisticated you are. Or, if your reputation for naivety precedes you, pair Rose Nylund’s belted periwinkle dress with your best sweet smile and let the costume compliments roll in.
According to People, each $69 ensemble includes clip-on jewelry (and glasses for Sophia), but you’ll have to purchase the wigs separately—they’re $24 each, or you can buy all four together for $79.
As a heartening testament to the lasting popularity of the show, the four costumes have already sold out at Target. If you’re too excited to wait for them to restock, you can order yours from Toynk here.
