Looking for a unique and affordable Halloween costume? Visit Goodwill locations in Summit, Portage, Medina, Ashland and Richland Counties! You’ll find everything you need to create an awesome, one-of-a-kind look.
Here are some easy costumes you can create with items from your local Goodwill. Find the store nearest you by visiting www.goodwillakron.org.
Witch: Grab a black dress and black pointed hat. Wear tights and black shoes. We love the subtle pink detail in this dress and the purple tights. Who says you have to wear all black? Accessorize with a broom, cape or cauldron.
Pirate: Pair a white button-down shirt with black pants and black vest or suit jacket with the sleeves removed. Add a sash around your waist, a seaworthy hat and pirate makeup to complete the costume. Bonus points if you wear a pair of leather boots to complete the look.
Baseball Player: Find a pair of sweatpants or baseball pants. Add a baseball-style shirt or the shirt of your favorite baseball team. Finish with baseball cap, bat or glove.
By purchasing items at Goodwill, you’ll save on your Halloween costumes and be able to use those clothes again once Halloween is over. You can also feel good knowing that your purchase will help provide job training and community services to people looking for work here in our community.
What will you be this Halloween?
