Goodwill Is Your Go To For Creative Halloween Costumes


In this time of rising prices and cost cutting, you can still celebrate Halloween economically, by shopping at one of Goodwill's 43 stores located throughout northwest North Carolina. Plus, your purchases will help fund services for people in need across northwest North Carolina. 
With thousands of pieces of merchandise added to the sales floor daily, shoppers can create a spooktacular costume that is sure to make a scream this Halloween season.  All that is required is a little imagination combined with Goodwill’s vast inventory and wonderfully wicked prices, to experience the excitement of creating one of these costumes. Along with great clothing and accessories for unique, DIY costumes, Goodwill is stocked with prepackaged costumes and fall décor at bargain prices. 
“All you need is a little time and creativity to find the right pieces for a fun costume,” said Jaymie Eichorn, Goodwill VP of Marketing and Communications. “Your purchases will support workforce training, career services, and other programs, which help people in our community find jobs and get back on their feet.”
Here are some creative costume ideas, all under $10:
  •  Black-Eyed Pea- All white outfit with a large "P" cut out from construction paper.  Black ring of make-up around one eye.
  •  Flo the Progressive Insurance Girl - White t-shirt, jeans, apron, FLO name tag, hair pulled back, red lipstick.
  • Don Draper - Dark suit, dark tie, white shirt, glass tumbler.
  • Tickled Pink - Dress in all pink and carry a feather. When people ask what you are answer, "I'm tickled pink!"  
  • Larry The Cable Guy - Plaid shirt, cut off the sleeves, old ball cap, faded jeans, goatee
  • Black Mail -  Dress in all black and attach a postage stamp to your chest. You're black mail! 
  • Devil in a Blue Dress - Blue dress, devil horns.
Your creative efforts could be rewarded in the BOOdwill Facebook contest! Shoppers posting their bewitching finds and costume creations by Tuesday, November 5 at can enter to win a Kindle Fire HD.
