HalloweenCostumeFilter: Where can I find a shiny silver bathrobe, big fuzzy slippers and a toy raygun for cheap in LA or San Diego? Bonus points for finding all 3 in one place.

probably at a Target, or a store like it
what's your price range? the items I found were reasonable, especially if they can be used or gifted beyond Halloween, but not so much otherwise

What's your costume, speicus?

Buy a cheap robe and spraypaint it silver.

I'm pretty sure you can obtain all those things within 2 or 3 blocks along Melrose Blvd. in Hollywood.

Response by poster: My costume: I was born in the future and since then I have been traveling backwards through time. So, while for most people at a halloween party it will be evening, I just woke up.

So, I need to look like I just climbed out of bed, but in a shiny, futuristic way.

Good suggestions so far, keep it coming! Um, is it actually a good idea to spraypaint clothing?

As long as you spraypaint in a well-ventilated area. My friends paint/spraypaint their clothes all the time. I probably wouldn't regularly wear something that is totally spraypainted, but one time wouldn't be bad.

If they don't have the clothes at Target, try JCPenny's or Mervyn's or the like.

Also, if you spraypaint your clothes, stay away from naked flames. Like, jack'o'lanterns for example.

Best answer: I'm thinking this costume needs some sort of future goggles.

They also have a location on Melrose.
