Teresa Davis got a manicure in honor of the Eagles.

When you’ve waited more than five decades to see the Vince Lombardi trophy, top notch fan fashion is a no-brainer. These Eagles fans found creative ways to express their devotion at the parade on Thursday.

Talk about embracing the underdog. Jose Oroczo, 63, made himself a pair of pants and a matching jacket from what he described as “dog fur.” We don’t know about that, but we do expect he stayed warm.

This Eagles fan’s wild outfit not only caught the attention of bystanders, but gave him a great view of the parade. (It’s also impressive that he found Eagles pants long enough for his stilts.)

This fan went with a tried-and-true look — the tinsel wig, and matching boots.

Sharlen Steele of Upper Darby said that the parade meant a lot to her, enough to create a new makeup look for the occasion. “I’m 56 and I’ve lived long enough to see a Super Bowl,” she said.

Sharlen Steele of Upper Darby sported green lipstick for the occasion.

We’re already looking forward to seeing what outfits will hit the Parkway at next year’s parade.
