Get a White Trash Outfit for Halloween
Like to kick back on the couch and watch a dramatic episode of Jerry Springer? Love Joy’s flesh-baring outfits on My Name is Earl? Feel a little nostalgic when Achy Breaky Heart comes on the radio? Well, why not embody one of these fun, hillbilly characters at your next costume party? All eyes will be on you and your overalls as you strut through the party in full - fledged white trash mode - and everyone will want to stick around you and see where the drama takes them!
Thrift stores and costume stores, while often abundant in costume choice, can be crowded, over-stocked, and difficult to find specific items in. It could take you several days just to compile all necessary clothing and accessories for your costumes. When making purchases on Amazon.com, though, shopping is fun, easy, and fast. The site’s easily-navigated search engine, detailed product reviews, and suggestions can help save you hours of browsing through stores and leave you with more time to focus on other aspects of the party!
Starting at the Top
The site has got you covered from head to toe, so let’s start up top. Billy Ray Cyrus was almost as famous for his music as he was for his mullet!

Don’t forget the hair - Loreal Paris Satin Hairspray delivers an extra strong hold so you can tease your hair to the heavens for a bold, trashy look.

Amazon has a large selection of choices, featuring a variety of lengths and colors that accentuate legs to make them look as if they go on for miles. Eminem won’t be able to keep his eyes off of you!
Wigs, Robes and Shoes
If you’re not in a Daisy Duke mood, you can always awe with a classic trailer-park wife look. Bright turquoise wavy hair has an adjustable inner cap and top quality fibers to conform to your head. Pair them with the loose-fitting, Traditional Chinese Dragon Robe, left slightly open for a wicked tease. This 4.5 star rated robe is silky to the touch, and gorgeously embellished.

Amazon.com also features a range of trinkets for prizes and party games, and you can even purchase food items, like pork ‘n beans or Cheez Whiz for fun party snacks.
Find Your Costume
Running around to different stores to complete your costume can be a real drag, but with Amazon, full outfits can be put together in moments for a time-saving, cost-effective planning strategy. Instead of pawing through multiple items just to find the perfect outfit, you can find a unique one in minutes. Unlike visiting a store and having to search through several departments, the easy Amazon search engine makes finding specific items a piece of cake. What’s best about purchasing these items, of course, is that they’re versatile enough to use at other times! All clothing can be worn for summertime fun, and the gorgeous robe can be used for sleep or lounging. Shoes and boots can be used for special occasions or even for running errands.
Now that you’ve managed to put together a complete costume in a matter of minutes, you can spend more time and money saved focusing on other aspects of the party. Take the time to bake up some Spam or canned sausages, ladle some beer-infused punch, or make a “pin the beer can on the hillbilly” board for more party fun. So come on, Brett Michaels and Peggy Bundy - time to head to the trailer park!
