October is here and Halloween is on it’s way. It’s time to get creative! Have you ever thought about turning an old dance costume into a halloween costume? Here are a few low budget ways to make the most out of your old costumes!
1. If your costume was themed, you may not have to do much! Were you were a 50’s girl, a rock star or a princess? Many dance costumes can be worn as is with just a few additions or accessories.
2. If your costume is primarily one color scheme, choose a costume that fits with the color! For example, if you have a red dress, you could be a ladybug or a devil. If your costume is blue, you could be a butterfly or mermaid. Think outside the box. Plus, you can always use pieces and parts of different costumes to make a new one!
