1) Re-use Costumes
If last year’s costumes no longer fit or you just don’t want to wear them again trade with family or friends. Put together an original outfit with different parts of different costumes or look around for interesting pieces at op-shops and garage sales. Most important of all is to have fun.
The other alternative is to rent a costume and every good costume shop has a great selection of gruesome and scary characters.
2) Make Your Own Make-Up
Paint your kids' faces with eco-friendly make up, like you’ll find at www.purepoppet.com.au, or make your own. Visit www.safecosmetics.org/article.php?id=233#halloween for more information.
