After much antique shopping and crafting at home, our vision was realized for our Ricky and Lucy Ricardo Couple Costumes! Ricky pulled an old skinny tie out of his closet and Lucy found a polka dot dress on eBay. The hoop skirt underneath came from a vintage shop.
We found the apron at an antique shop and pinned on the “I Love Lucy” logo. The bongos also came from an antique shop, we drilled holes in the sides and connected them to a belt from Goodwill. We printed out a label for the Vitameatavegiman and glued it to a herbal supplement bottle.
The pearls came from my jewelry box at home and the hat was purchased at a craft store, painted with a sponge brush and we hot glue-gunned the black ribbon on. Lucy’s red hair was a spray from a costume shop.
