Super Ways To Save On Costumes

How many of you have bins in the attic or basement full of past years Halloween costumes that you know will never be worn again?  I know how expensive these costumes probably were, and as hard as it may be, it’s time to sell them at your next garage sale, (September or early October is the perfect time), list them on Craigslist, or on your local Facebook yard sale group.  It amazes me how fast things get sold on my local FB yard sale group, so whether you’re a seller or buyer it’s a great place to save and buy.  Now, on to the costume saving tips for this upcoming Halloween season or any time of the year!


Rent A Costume



Female Stormtrooper Costume



Since I am a huge fan of the Star Wars movies, here is an example of a Ladies Stormstrooper Costume that you can actually rent for around $33 on   What I love about renting a costume is that you get to wear something that probably no one else will, and you get to send it back!  This is a great alternative for anyone hosting or going to a Halloween party this year.  



Buy A Pre-Owned Costume



Adult Authentic Jedi Robe

You can also buy pre-owned costumes, such as this Adult Jedi Robe for around $60, which is a super way to save if you love to go to themed parties.  This is a perfect option for all of you Star Wars fanatics out there who plan on attending as many premiere parties for the upcoming new Star Wars movie premiering this December.   May the force be with you!  🙂


Costumes for Star Wars are already going very quickly, so make sure to try these different online costume stores below!

Make Your Own Costume



I know that you already know, that you can save money by making your own costume, but I thought that I would share some of my favorite, creative, DIY costume & make-up ideas that I have found by heading to one of my favorite Pinterest boards below:   

Follow SuperGirlSavings’s board Halloween Fun on Pinterest.


These are just a few ways that you can save on the upcoming Halloween season and beyond, but I also suggest that you check out Amazon’s Halloween Shop for costume savings, accessories, and Halloween fashions!  Also, I would check in their Warehouse Deals, and see what pre-owned or open boxed items are on sale,  you just never know what spooky treasure you may find.

I happened to be going through my teen daughters closet this weekend, and I couldn’t believe all the different tote, drawstring, and zipper bags that she had.  (In fact, I don’t even know where she got half of them).   Although, I have to admit that I’m probably just as bad as she is, because I love getting a new tote bag, especially if it comes with a matching zipper pouch.  In fact, I’ve been searching for a sewing machine so that I can learn how to quilt, or maybe make my own personalized bags and give them for gifts this holiday season.  My mother is a seamstress, and she is a big fan of the Brother sewing machines, so I have found this Brother CS6000i Feature-Rich Sewing Machine With 60 Built-In Stitches, 7 styles of 1-Step Auto-Size Buttonholes, Quilting Table, and Hard Cover and it’s calling my name at $143.00, plus I will get free 2-day shipping with my Amazon Prime membership.  




Since it’s been many, many, many years since I actually sewed anything…..(I’m talking like highschool, when I made some cheetah skorts, can you tell I’m an 80’s babe)?  LOL  

I thought that I would start with taking these two online sewing classes that I posted about last year.  Here’s the link if you are interested:


Free Online Bag & Tote Sewing Classes


AND…..maybe if I get good enough, I will take this “Quilt As You Go Patchwork Bag” online class below:


Quilt-As-You-Go Patchwork Bags


I’m always willing to learn how to do something new, and I can’t wait to see how these DIY tote, drawstring, and zipper pouches turn out! Geez….I might not want to do this because I may want to keep them all. 🙂
