Purple Rain Halloween Costume at Target

Yes, this is scary. Target is selling a Purple Rain Costume for Halloween!

"Includes crushed velvet jacket and pants, lace trim and lace ascot"

Well, of course!

'Purple Reign' Halloween Costume available at Target & Amazon (Fall 2005)

falloff OMG, I can picture Zelaira going out to Target and buying this costume, since she is the certified "Prince fanatic" on the org.
RIP, Prince. A legend has left us, and you will be forever missed. cry

If I'm not mistaken it wasn't Zelaira at Paisley Park wearing a HIDEOUS D&P era outfit/pant suit with metallic writing up and down the arms and legs, with a friend no less, looking like the Golden Girls on acid

LOL

for all we know Zelaria is putting us on, but Psych, u actually wore that in public!

I'm going to an 80's prom party tonight and my girlfriend told me I should go as Prince - so, I just called the local target to make sure that they have the costume and fortunately they do! I'm going to pick it up now! nod Pictures will be popping up sometime soon! smile

Well, that is true, I did wear the outfit that your described, but no I'm not Zelaira, let's not get the two mixed up here. lol The outfit was anything but hideous, I actually got a lot of compliments on it, and still do to this day. The outfit I wore was made by the person I was with (who actually is a friend of mine) and I borrowed it for the day. It was a once in a lifetime thing that I did, that I probably would not do again (but hey Prince noticed the outfit, so that's all that matters, not what anybody else thinks). biggrin

"Purple Reign?" I sense a lawsuit; I don't see any "authorization" from either Prince or Warner Brothers on this one.

or i guess the original thread isn't newsworthy until someone official checks it out....that cracks me up that there is someone out there that goes to Target to check and then comes back to post an official thread....the funniest part about this costume is the white guy on the cover with the fake hair and beard looks like a homeless version of Prince.....the costume size sucks too.....only for kids or really small people.....and probably wouldn't even fit Prince!

Oh, I'm sooo getting this for me and my boyfriend. Though at 6 foot plus, I doubt there's gonna be one big enough for him. It'll make it that much funnier.
Hey, if two Princes show up at your door this Halloween with pillow cases and Watchtowers, that'll be us. lol

falloff that is so funny.

My daughter and her partner have been talking about getting married he is going on about wearing purple and winding my daughter up (he is not a prince fan) Maybe I should purchase it for a laugh and give it to him and say there you go your sorted out for the day. The looks on both there faces would be priceless lol
