Costumes are arguably the best part about Halloween. So, once the festivities are over, it’s a bit sad to put that Halloween costume away for good. After all, most people do not wear the same costume every Halloween. Switching it up and trying something new is all part of the dressing-up fun! If you really love your Halloween costume, you don’t have to let it go to waste after tomorrow.
Continue below to learn the top 3 ways you can put a used Halloween costume to good use!
How to Extend the Life of Your Halloween Costume
❶ Keep for Kid’s Playtime
Kids love to play dress up no matter what time of year it is! If your kids, or your friend’s kids, love to play and dress up, your old Halloween costumes are the perfect addition to their toy boxes! From princesses and kings to ninjas, fairies, superheroes, and more, assuming the identity of a make-believe character is more fun with a great costume!
❷ Disassemble for Fabric Reserves
Do you like to sew? Are you crafty? Well, Halloween costumes are generally made with all sorts of great fabrics that you can keep for future sewing projects. Tulle, chiffon, silk, nylon, denim, and more are all highly-compatible materials for sewing and clothes making.
❸ Donate to Goodwill
If you know you will never wear your Halloween costume again, but you know it’s a really great one, you can give the costume a future life by donating it to your local Goodwill or similar donation center. Someone else can buy your Halloween costume and put it to good use once again! Just be sure that your costume is still in good condition before donating it.
