THRIFT STORE COSTUME CHALLENGE

We challenged Princeton sophomore James Jared to costume as many literary characters as he could in 180 minutes. The catch? James could only use what he found on the racks of the Nearly New consignment & thrift shop on Nassau Street. Tune in to our creative blog, Pop Goes the Page, to see James’ awesome results.
