HELP!!!!!! Where can I find these......?

I'm planning on being Velma from Scooby Doo and my husband will be Shaggy. I can't find anywhere that has an orange skirt and/or orange sweaters. Anyone know where one can find this stuff? I don't want a costume, as they are cheap and chincy. Thanks for your help ladies!

  • I don't want the costume. That's the problem. They are hard to size and frankly, if I'm going to spend money, I am going to wear it more than once...thanks for the advice though. I will try JCP....good idea.

  • Go to any cheap store. There is one called Conway's in NY. I'm sure they would have something. You have to be creative. Maybe H&M? You need the orange skirt and a cowl neck sweater and knee socks. Good luck!!

  • I go to thrift stores and find stuff like that. It's cheap and you can donate it back when you are done so you don't have to store it.
