Every year, I am that person who decides to wait last-minute to buy a Halloween costume. As a result of my procrastination, I tend to lean towards animal costumes, because they are quick, easy, and adorable! This year, I teamed up with my local Savers Thrift Store, to create an inexpensive, head-to-toe thrifted costume, that I won't be ashamed to wear in public.
If you are like me, and also decided to wait last-minute to get a costume, don't fret. Savers is your one-stop shop for Halloween! They have new and used costume and accessory options, which makes it easy to create a one-of-a-kind look. When shopping for my costume, I was torn between being a magician, a mermaid, a teddy bear, or a fairy nymph. Their aisles are filled with hundreds of choices. Although it is a secondhand store, during Halloween you can find new packaged costumes, makeup, wigs, and accessories at a fraction of their original price. I ended up scoring my DIY costume for a little under $30!
If you have really procrastinated on brainstorming a costume, Savers has in-store costume consultants who can help you create a unique look with DIY Halloween costumes. Basically, if you haven't bought or thought of a costume yet, it's not too late. Plus, I think the best ideas & costumes are created last minute. :P
I am "beary" pleased with this costume. Especially since the dress, bear, ribbon, ears, and shoes were all from Savers. But I'd like to say I am most proud of the teddy bear ears, which were originally ear muffs.
Although I procrastinated creating a costume, I am now ready for the Halloween festivities! I'd love to see what costumes you all come up with. Be sure to share them with the hashtag #ThriftorTreat.
What are you wearing for Halloween?
