Halloween is a great reason to get creative! You get to share your creativity with your family and neighbors, but you don’t have to figure out a place to permanently display your art in your home. Trashmagination began with Halloween costumes as I tried to win a day-off-with-pay in the annual costume contest at my work. I learned a lot about what types of costumes tend to win as I made 11 creative reuse costumes. Hopefully it inspires you to make your own Halloween costume from recycled materials.
Halloween Costume Contests
- Take Back Halloween – costumes that portray strong women
- Inhabitat’s Green Halloween Contests – This is a link to the 2016 contest – hopefully the 2017 contest is announced soon.
