Spring Clovers

Spring showers and green clovers are soon to be marching down the streets of Modesto. March brings the Spring Equinox and all the bright and pastel varieties of color. Whether it be a beautiful floral bouquet centerpiece or colorful clothing, try surrounding yourself with a rainbow of color thisSpring to instantly boost your mood.

Second Chance Consignment/ Costume Corner has a good selection of Saint Patrick’s Day themed ensembles and tons of green accessories. They have a very cute andmodern Irish pub girl costume and the green Irish suit for your date to match. Make sure to top these outfits off with a hat and all the accessories. Beth, one of the owners, is a great help with mixing and matching different accessories to make an overall finished ensemble.

Make sure to check the $1.00 rack, straight ahead when entering. There are great finds sometimes. The jewel headbands, under the glass, are really cute and only $3.00 each and the jewelry is extremely reasonable, especially the earrings.

Some of my favorite items are the masquerade style masks that are placed around this costume boutique. They remind me of past adventures in Venice or New Orleans. Thesemasks are quality made, unique, affordable, and always mysterious.

It is actually really convenient that part of the store is designated for women’s consignment because it makes it easier for complete characters to be constructed with extra odds and ends that are easily accessible. All costumes are rented but you can find jackets, shoes, makeup, jewelry, hair color sprays, exotic eyelashes, beaded necklaces, boas, scarves, hats, wigs, and much more. They carry a huge selection of Ben Nye eye shadow, body/face paints, special effects makeup, a good variety ofglitters, and creme personal kits. The Ben Nye personal kits come in a widerange of concepts, fully prepared with special effects makeup, and easy instructions. They carry children’s size 6 to adult size 3x, in men’s and women’s and offer a student discount through high school. Second Chance Consignment and Costume Corner, Tully Road, Modesto
