Extra extra!

Rhinestones, glitter, gem stickers, embellishments- all found at dollar stores for yes, $1.

One of the things I enjoy doing leading up to the parade is scouting out fun accessories for my costume, finding all the extras needed. And let's face it, since playing mas is getting more & more expensive, the last thing I want to do is to pay top dollar for accessories. Costume jewellery will do just fine for one day, and since dollar and discount stores carry such a variety of sparkly shiny embellishments, why pay more than one or two dollars?

Designer fragrance depot has a pretty good selection of fantasy eyelashes including metallic, glitter, and sparkly black with crystals or feathers for just $2.

This pouch caught my eye at Designer fragrance depot. How cute would it look with Cosmic Nebula and Lost Treasures?

Even these pretty pouches would carry a camera well.

Love the choice of big blingy rings at Dollarama.

Don't want to fuss with getting glue on gems?

- use cell phone stick on gems!


Even some nail stickers, especially the 3D ones, are big enough to wear on your face.

Dollar Blitz has these cute beaded bracelets.

Or, make your own bracelet with these Krystaal's at Dollar Giant.

These glass beads to make a bracelet are fantastic.

Basically, there's no shortage of options to bedazzle yourself out: nail jewels that you don't have to limit to only your nails; stick on rhinestones; or Body Art from Claire's.
And these peacock earrings are perfect for sooo many costumes.

So how is your search for extras going, what are some of your great finds?
