I grew up in a house filled with music.
My mom had — probably still has — this great collection of 45s, a stack of bubblegum pop from the 1950s and ’60s.
We listened to Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley & the Comets, the Supremes, the Temptations, the Crystals, the Angels and so many more.
OK, wait a second … for you youngsters out there, 45s were predecessors of MP3s. They were these crazy black circles made of vinyl and they were played on a phonograph that looks something like this:
Anyhow, Mom regaled me with stories of the dances she attended with my dad throughout their courtship.
Sock hops were alive and well in 1950s Canada.
My head filled with fantasies of crinoline, bobby socks, ponytails and saddle shoes. I’m stirred by the music, the fashion and the simplicity of the times.
And a couple of years ago, when my workmates decided to hold a sock hop for a team-bonding event, I squealed with delight. I knew exactly what I would do.
I turned to CostumeChik and found exactly what I needed:
You can buy it all at CostumeChik, an all-Canadian online costume store and a great place to get dressed up.
If guys are going to a sock hop, they simply have to use their imagination: roll up the cuffs on a pair of dark-wash jeans, throw on a white T-shirt and a leather jacket and slick the hair back with some gel.
But wait …
You don’t have to leave puppy out of the fun. CostumeChik has what you need to get Fido or Scruffy all decked out.
Seriously … check this out.
Dress up your dog to be the perfect companion for Danny Zuko and the other T-Birds, right out of the Grease movie.
He’ll be the hit of the sock hop.
