Family Halloween Costumes

Michelle Raven from Arc’s Value Village stopped by to share creative and spook-tacular ways to help coordinate Halloween costumes for your family on a budget.

 

Josie & the Pussycats

Each costume approximately $30

 

Paul Bunyan & family

Average price of the Paul Bunyan family’s costume: $15

Repurpose items you already have at home, use props from the BOO-tique to transform everyday items into Halloween costumes

 

Environmentalist Frankenstein Family

Each costume approximately $30

Costumes that make a statement about your personal values or your political stance are popular this year.  

The Olson family values environmentalism and wanted to weave that into their costume. Arc’s Value Village has all the items you’d need to craft a classic costume like Frankenstein - and then you can incorporate other elements to put your own creative spin on it.

 

Alice in Wonderland

Average price of the Alice in Wonderland family’s costume: $16.50

Caterpillar: $5 - costume repurposed from a sleeping bag

Arc’s Value Village believes part of the magic & fun of Halloween is creating a one-of-a-kind costume that’s unique & original.  If time is a limiting factor, you can certainly find a costume-in-a-bag at Arc’s Value Village for far cheaper than you would at a costume shop.

But, if you’ve got a little more time and feel inspired, you can create something more artful and imaginative.  Then the costuming itself becomes a special part of the Halloween experience for your family.
