Bring out the pumpkins! It’s that time of the year again 🎃

And although Halloween can sometimes feel like the one day you can bring out the hidden Maleficient in you, don’t rush to the closest < insert fast fashion brand > store near you to purchase a long black shroud you don’t mind never wearing again, because of the peanuts that it cost you.

Instead, check out these Halloween #ProTips that are all about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle ♻︎ – #deathbyfastfashion never looks good on anybody, even on Halloween 👻💀👻

1 / PAPER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

It’s really kind of amazing how much you can do with items your find in your paper recycling bin. It’s a DIY dream! Empty toilet paper rolls and newspaper strips make the best wigs, while the possibilities using cardboard is endless.

2 / GO VINTAGE OR GO HOME.

You can spend a ridiculous amount of money from a costume store buying something from who knows where made of who knows what, or you can get the real thing, which is so much more fun!

3 / MAKE A STATEMENT.

Don’t be afraid to make a statement with you costume. Some of my favorites that I found were Overheated Mother Nature, Pacific Garbage Patch Zombie, Disappointed Bee and Captain Planet.

4 / DON’T FORGET YOUR FACE.

Toxic chemicals going right on your skin is a big no-no, which is what you get with most costume make up.  Have no fear, there are brands that are definitely more friendly to your face.

And don’t forget: SHARING IS CARING! 💛 Once you have recovered from your holiday fun, plan a costume swap with your friends for next year.

Happy Halloween!! 🎃👻😘
