Southern Oregon Goodwill is
for DIY costumes on a budget — where every dollar you spend gives back to your community
When you are watching every dollar, Goodwill is the choice where you can find unique and affordable costumes at Goodwill and look like you spent a lot more money. Find kids costumes, adult Halloween costumes, couples costumes, costumes for dogs, costumes for cats, costumes for other pets, scary Halloween costumes, silly costumes or vamp it up with a sexy Halloween costume.
Goodwill is a trusted Halloween DIY expert. People have been making their Halloween costumes from Goodwill finds for many years, long before it was trendy. The best way to save at Halloween is to use your imagination. Goodwill offers unique, gently-used items and new accessories to help you put together the perfect costume without breaking the bank. And you don’t have to worry about having the same costume as someone else at a Halloween party.
This year, we’ve partnered with The Addams Family for the Halloween season. Spend the spooky season with Goodwill and the First Family of Halloween as you check out our unique Addams-inspired DIY ideas and Meet the Addams in theaters October 11!
Suit up for Halloween by finding clothing staples like a black dress, a plaid shirt, or a pair of boots to build your unique costume. If you want new items like a wig, hat, cape, bright stockings or a mask for your Halloween costume, Goodwill has those, too, but shop early because October is Goodwill’s busiest month of the year for visitors. At Goodwill, we often say Halloween is busier than the Christmas holiday season. Goodwill has Halloween makeup tips online and in-store by asking a store associate. Other makeup tutorials include pirate, zombie, aging adult, witch, vampire, fairy princess, and more.
Shop at Goodwill for your Halloween costume and decoration needs. By purchasing items at Goodwill, you are supporting your local community and helping people find jobs. Revenue from your Halloween purchases fund job training programs and career services that help people find work, earn paychecks and support their families — right here in Southern Oregon.
