so be sure to check out your local Goodwill for great deals on costumes! Or browse the racks for inspiration to make your own, like I have for the past 2 years! Not only is it cheaper, but the process of creating your own costume can be fun and rewarding as well: finding that great deal and repurposing a collection of things into an entirely new creation! My mermaid costume was done on a whim: I found perfect garments that I could sew together to transform it into a skirt and super cool ‘geanie’ type shoes that echoed the colors of the other garments. The downside is that second hand stores don’t have everything and their inventory changes on a regular basis; meaning you might need to make a few trips if you are looking for something specific.
Goodwill’s halloween season started in late August! Never too soon to start planning because it’s just around the corner…click here to see my tutorial page on how to make these costumes!
