Costume Ins-purr-ration for the 2014 Fur Ball Gala

fur ball galaAs you may know, this year’s Wayside Waifs-sponsored Fur Ball Gala is centered around a fun baseball theme. Because our organization has some serious spunk, we like to celebrate and fundraise in true style. To get you warmed up and ready for the big night, we have comprised a short list of ideas from our very own Look Book.

Baseball Costumes That Will Make the Crowd Bark

Base 1 – Ease into this year’s A League of Their Own-inspired theme with a classic baseball T-hat combination. Keeping things casual with a timeless three-quarter-length baseball T is a sure way to blend in with the crowd. A comfy T paired with a baseball hat of your choosing – we’re partial to the Royals – is sure to earn you a round of applause.

Base 2 – Want to step up your costume game, while showing your favorite team in the league some love? Be royal at this year’s gala by sporting your favorite dark blue Royals jersey and fan swag. And if you’re root, root, rooting for another team, that’s okay, too. We welcome friendly rivalries.

Base 3 – For a non-traditional approach to this year’s theme, pay tribute to the hardworking men and women who distribute tasty beverages and savory finger foods throughout ball games.  Hotdogs. Cotton candy.  Lemonade. The options are limitless, and think how much fun – and treats — you can have as you get your costume together.

Base 4 – Cross home plate with a splash and go all out with a full-fledged baseball ensemble. Tube socks, cropped pants, a jersey, and a glove will have you looking like you’re on the roster. And, if you want to take your outfit to the next level, throw on an umpire’s mask and chest protector for good measure.
