Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadian friends and readers! Today many of us are gathered around the table filling our bellies and being thankful. Or we’re on the couch recovering from a turkey hangover. While we’re celebrating one holiday, I admit that my mind is on my most favourite holiday that’s just around the corner…halloween! I never grew out of the idea of getting dressed up and getting to play another character for a night. And the bag full of candy was a pretty sweet deal too. If only I wouldn’t get the stink eye doing it now, I would be out there with my pillowcase ready to cash in.
I think part of the reason I love this holiday so much is the creative factor in pulling together a costume. Sure, you could go out and buy something already put together, there’s so many more options now then there was before but where’s the fun in that? Halloween + thrift stores = a few of my favourite things. Last year I made a mermaid costume all from pieces I found at Value Village (aka Savers for my American friends) which was a big hit. But if you’re not the DIY type, I also showed you a bunch of easy costumes you could pull together with thrift store pieces. Here’s some more great thrift store halloween costume ideas for this year.
Do you have a costume in mind already for this year? I would love to hear what costume ideas you would add to this list or some of your favourite halloween stories.
