Halloween is about three weeks away and this means it's time to... prepare the costumes! You could spend a fortune buying a brand new already made costume online. Or you could spend some time at Deseret Industries looking through their already made costumes, you could even try putting your creative mind to work and DIY your own costume.
A few months back Brand and I -Hazel really, who are we kidding- came up with a Halloween theme for our family this year. Drum roll please... we are going to be Winnie The Pooh characters! Can you imagine? Brand as Christopher Robin? You guys, this is really happening and he is so pro Christopher Robin I couldn't believe it.
Being students, money is tight, and so it's hard to justify purchasing brand new Halloween costumes. And so, with a little research I thought DIYing our costumes would be our best bet...
Last weekend we headed to Deseret Industries and were able to put together the perfect outfits for both of our characters -Christopher Robin and Piglet. (Hazel's costume was gifted to us) Brand found an awesome yellow collar shirt, a white collar shirt, blue shorts, and white tube socks, all for $13! I was able to find these light pink capris (Calvin Klein), an oversized magenta top, and a light pink top (I used this to make the Piglet ears) all for $12!
Deseret Industries has such a great selection of everything you could ever need for your Halloween costume. And it was really nice to have multiple outfit options to choose from. If your costume needs anything from shirts, to shoes, to baskets, to pants, DI restocks their inventory daily with thousands of new items to create your Halloween costume, so you won't have any trouble finding what you need.
If you're getting ready to search for -or even make- your Halloween costume be sure to stop into Deseret Industries and check out their selection. (If you need help finding a DI near you head here.) You'll be happily surprised at what you find - I know we were!
Also, if you have old Halloween costumes laying around your house that you don't use anymore give them new life by donating them to Deseret Industries. Donations are tax deductible and help fund training programs in your community.
