Quick and easy Halloween costumes

Dec 19 2017, 6:12 pm

Picking a Halloween costume can feel like one of the hardest decisions you have to make each year. Cute or funny? Sultry or scary? After hours deliberating over different blogs and scouring ideas on Pinterest, you finally decide what your costume is going to be. But then comes the hard part, making it.

How does Lauren Conrad make paper maché antlers so easily? Why after countless Youtube tutorials, can you only contour your face to look like a cakey beige mess rather than a ferocious tiger? And why must a simple Batman Mask cost a fortune?

It can all feel like too much to handle, but luckily Value Village is here to help.

Value Village is home to just about every costume you can ever imagine, and then some. Want to be a sassy bottle of Sriracha? They’ve got a costume for that. What about the cha cha dancing emoji? They have that too. Want to rock a comb over and permanent pout? Why not try their Donald Trump costumes on for size?
