Halloween is fast approaching, but maybe you don’t want to spend all that money on a costume right before the holiday season. What to do? Make your own costume.
We’re still trying to decide what Dart should be for Halloween (suggestions would be lovely), but we did find some great places to start building your outfit….
Goodwill: This time of year Goodwill brings out all their Halloween costumes they’ve been holding from the past year. If you see one you like, go ahead and grab it because you won’t find a better deal anywhere else. Goodwill also has great pieces that can serve as the base for your outfit. Going as a zombie? You won’t mind getting these clothes a little dirty with makeup and fake blood.
Hobby Lobby: Go here for great deals on fake plants (Eve, Hippie, Swamp Thing), hot glue guns, glitter, clothing paint, beads and makeup
The toy store: Go here for costumey brightly colored makeup and accesories like swords, baseball bats, wands, etc.
Home Depot, Loews, or (our pick) your locally owned hardware store: Now don’t hurt yourself, but there is room to get a little creative with the knick knacks you can find there. Want to be a construction worker? There’s no better place to go.
