What To Do With Your Costume After Halloween


Unfortunately, Halloween is over. All the time and money you spent on your Halloween costume is no longer needed. So what do you do now with your full attire? Here are some great options of what to do with your costume after Halloween!

Choose Our Upcycle Program

If you used your Faviana dress as a Halloween costume, then here’s the perfect thing to do with your costume after Halloween. Faviana created an Upcycle Program for you to donate your gently used Faviana dress back to us. This provides another girl with your dress who may not have the opportunity or resources to get one herself. Do your part today and participate in our program, especially if you know you’re not going to wear your dress again.

Besides Faviana’s Upcycle Program, you can donate any costume material to  a local charity. Donate to hospitals or other organizations’ Halloween costume drives in your area such as Jersey Cares, Interfaith Social Services, or Chapman Partnership. Other people will be grateful to be able to wear a costume and celebrate the holiday, or just play dress-up themselves. Especially in children’s hospitals, you can help give a child a fun escape escape and a smile at a time when they could really use it the most.

Do A Costume Swap

Costume swaps are the new and green way to spread resources used to make costumes. You can provide people with your high-quality, low-cost Halloween costume options by organizing families in your neighborhood, or attending large-scale annual swaps. A very large number of styles and sizes are usually available with this fun and friendly form of recycling. You can also simply do a costume swap with your friend. This makes your money go twice as far when you and a friend trade costumes every other year. Costume swaps benefit you and the people around you, so it’s a double win!

Attend Comic-Con

Another option is keeping your costume and wearing it again. Especially if you wore a superhero or amazing character costume this Halloween, then there’s no better way to rock it again than at New York’s Comic-Con. Comic Con is the largest pop culture event on the East Coast, hosting the latest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, and movies. People will want to take pictures of you in your costume, as you can go around experiencing other people’s looks. It’s the perfect opportunity to join the ever-growing culture of cosplayers and enjoy your comic book conventions on a newer and more interactive level. You can be as creative as you want and put your own unique spin on your favorite characters. All the hard work on your costume will definitely be recognized and not a waste!
