It’s the spookiest night of the year.
But have no fear — you’re not doomed if you haven’t found a scary good Halloween costume yet.
“The goal was to be Carrie, covered in blood, and then I found a bunch of random stuff along the way,” says last-minute shopper Molly Barkasy, showing us what she found at Value Village.
Whether you’re wigging out or making the costume theme a familiar affair, last-minute shoppers can still find some creepy costumes and cult classics.
“I didn’t know what I was going to be at all and then I found one piece, this cowboy hat, and thought I could be a cowboy and I went from there and found a fringy shirt,” explains shopper Clara Donnachie.
Dressed as a dinosaur, Value Village Halloween specialist Naomi Byrch can’t wait to share more tricks.
“I love dressing up!” Byrch says. “Every day I wear a new costume, do the makeup, and it’s lots of fun.”
Byrch has some spooktacular tips for what’s trending this trick-or-treat season.
“A lot of cat stuff and vampires,” Brych says. “I’ve seen a lot of last-minute vampire stuff come through and people will find a cool collar or cape and wear it with a dress.”
Rifling through the racks, Brych likes to mix and match previously loved costumes — including home-made ones — with new items.
“I love stuff like a little black or silver dress because you can dress it up with anything,” she advises. “You can turn it into a witch, turn it into a vampire.”
With so many crazy costume ideas, what’s Brych’s best advice for #Hallowinning?
“Pick something you enjoy, whether its out of a book you’ve read or a movie you enjoy,” Brych says. “It doesn’t matter if people around you don’t understand the costume as long as you enjoy it.”
