Halloween Fashion Show

Halloween costume expert, Summer Dunham, from Goodwill shows JR and Vanessa fun, creative and inexpensive costume ideas for kids and adults. 

Our Goodwill fashion show incorporates three ways in which you can have Halloween fun and save money at Goodwill. The mustard costume is an example of a complete costume available at Goodwill. And after Halloween you can donate it back to Goodwill for someone to use next year!  

Next is the witch costume, an example of how to glam up a costume by adding some fun accessories. She incorporated gloves, a hat, and stockings to add flare to an original costume. 

The third example is the Cowgirl, where you can purchase an entire outfit at the store, including accessories. 

These are just some of the ways that you can incorporate goodwill into you Halloween agenda. By either donating an outfit, buying unique accessories, or going all out on a costume, you are sure to have a wide variety of items to choose from at any Goodwill location.
