Now that I'm putting together my packing list, I'm trying to decide if I should wear my O'Neill cosplay to the banquet or wear plain clothes. Trying to choose which days to wear the costume is hurting my brain!

1960's theme is the go! See first page! ☺

yea... I know. i don't have a 60's costume, that's why the dilemma. I want to get as much use out of my SG-1 attire as possible, but I also don't want to overheat.

Ahhh! Penny drops! It has been pretty warm here. Pretty warm for Vancouver that is! This is a decision that only one person can make! Good luck! 😊

XJENNERSOX.....bought everything for my 60's outfit at Value Village and Goodwill.   Think I spent a total of $30.00 for both, including a hat and wig.

Thanks but I don't really have any interest in getting a 60's outfit and don't have any money to spare at this point!

I was in highschool in the 60's!!! No costume necessary. I'm authentic, eh?

Due to a lack of planning on my part (actually I lost track of time and kept telling myself I had plenty of time), the only vangroovy outfit I was able to come up with on time was a tie dye shirt, bell bottom jeans (sort of), and a headband, but I forgot sandals/60s footwear. Is there any place within walking distance or short taxi ride from the hotel where I could get some 60s looking footwear and 60s accessories?

Thanks.

Me too, but I cannot find anything in my closet, its all gone (plus those clothes wouldn't fit anyway because the longer they stay in my closet the more they shrink!)

There's a shopping mall literally down the street from the hotel.  I don't know that they have 60's specific footwear, but you can give it a shot.
