Can you create a killer Halloween costume for $10 or less?
That’s a Low-Cost Costume — and we want to see it!
Stating today, we’re holding a Low-Cost Costume Photo Fashion Show on our Facebook Fan Page. And on October 25th, we’re taking the virtual actual with a real-live Low-Cost Costume Clothing Swap and Costume-Making Party in downtown NYC.
Why are we doing this? Because we’re tired of these pricey, wasteful, predictable, plastic-wrapped costumes. Let’s be smart – let’s be crafty – let’s be green – and let’s make our own costumes together this year. Let’s make 2009 the year of the Low-Cost Costume!
Participate in our Low-Cost Costume Photo Fashion Show and share pics of your own Low-Cost Costumes (past or present) on our Facebook Fan Page (or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post em for you!). You can upload your photos and browse through the page for some one-of-a-kind ideas. Click the “Like” thumbs-up button to vote for your favorites and we’ll show off the top picks in A Good Look’s Photo Fashion Show the week before Halloween. The winner will get to be our guest-blogger here at A Good Look and will be our official GoodwillNyNj Low-Cost Costume Maven 2009. Good luck, you crafty kids!*
Scared to take the Low-Cost Costume Challenge? Don’t be! We’re here to help:
On Sunday, October 25th, we’re throwing a Low-Cost Costume Clothing Swap & Costume-Making Party from 3pm-7pm at Boxcar Lounge (168 Avenue B, between East 10th Street and East 11th Street). We’ll have local designers, fashion bloggers, and great crafters on-hand to help out. They’ll be there to help you make your creative dreams a Low-Cost Costume reality.
Just show up with at Boxcar Lounge with a bag of freshly cleaned, lightly used clothes. If you can’t bring anything, we’ll request a $5 donation at the door. Everyone will be able to leave with a bag stuffed with whatever they need to make their own costume just in time for Halloween.
Because no one in their right mind would choose to increase carbon emissions, support sweatshop labor and fork over $40 plus tax just to be the second Sexy Harem Girl in the room – especially when it’s so easy to make something infinitely better ourselves.
So let’s have some fun, support our community, and make Halloween 2009 the most creative holiday yet!
Don’t forget, you can either upload your pics on Facebook, or email them to us at email@example.com and we’ll do the work for you.
