National Costume Swap Day
At the least, a costume has been worn once on Halloween, at the most it was passed down from brother to brother and worn twice, or maybe worn a third time in the school's Halloween parade. Chances are, your costumes are still in good enough shape to pass them along to another child.
That's where National Costume Swap Day come into play. On Saturday, October 9th, kids all around the country will be swapping last year's costumes for something new and exciting. Just visit the swap website and you can find a swap near you, or list your own event. All you need to do is provide a venue and invite everyone you know.
If you're in Colorado, visit my Yahoo group called Colorado Costume Swap. It's a freecycle-esque type swap group where you can list costumes you have, or browse through what's available. When you find something you like, contact the owner and arrange a pick up. Easy-peasy!
