Get in Character this Halloween!

Image

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. If you’re like me, you started planning your costume back in August. But for those who may be slightly less rabid about their love for the spookiest of holidays, fear not! Our Halloween merchants have everything you’ll need to rock this Halloween in style. And the best part is, when you shop through us you’ll earn rewards for your school and yourself, to boot! Here are just a couple of essentials you’ll need to create that perfect character:

No great costume is complete without proper makeup. This makeup kit from Halloween Express comes with 6 makeup sticks, many different applicators, and full-color instructions on how to create three different faces.

If you’re looking for child’s costumes, Costume Express has an exciting selection of superheroes, pirates, ghosts, and ghouls. My favorite is this Iron Man 3 muscle light-up child’s costume that comes with an LED arc reactor and character mask. What child doesn’t want to be a full-blown superhero for a night? And it’s now 23% off!

Don’t leave Fido out of the mix! This Martha Stewart pet pumpkin costume from PetSmart will bring a smile to anyone’s face who sees your pet in this adorable orange and black jumpsuit. It’s available from sizes x-small to x-large, so no matter what size your dog is, he’s sure to be the most pampered pumpkin in the patch!
