Fort Collins’ favorite unofficial holiday, Tour de Fat, comes to the city Saturday. In addition to beer and bikes, the event brings out wacky, fun costumes.
New Belgium gives awards for the best costume at the event. Additionally, tweet a picture of your costume to @CollegianC for a shoutout from the Collegian.
For those of you wanting to get creative this weekend, here are four spots you can costume shop:
1. Party City
A typical spot for fun supplies, Party City sells specific costumes that require little effort on your part. From ’20s flappers to pirate characters, Party City has a wide variety of options. Additionally, they sell wigs, hats and other accessories to make your costume ideal.
Located in Old Town, this vintage clothing store offers unique pieces of clothing, ranging from eccentric to classic. They also have over 100 costumes available for rent.
Search through the racks at this Fort Collins thrift shop to find outlandish pieces to build your own costume. Though the store sells costumes in their “fun and funky section,” your best bet is finding your own unique pieces to compile into a great piece.
The official thrift store of Tour de Fat, Eco-thrift is a volunteer-run store located at 314 N. Howes St. The store sells clothing that is bound to make your costume extra special.
