It's almost Halloween season, meaning we are once more faced with the decision of what to wear. Between budgeting, narrowing down options, and trying to piece something quick together from your wardrobe, the task of finding the perfect Halloween costume can get pretty overwhelming. This year, you can skip all the stress and get your costume for free. Bring last year's outfit to Mississauga's Halloween costume swap and walk away with a whole new getup!
Hosted by South Mississauga Communities, Skele-fun Costume Swap takes place on Oct. 6, 2019. The goal of the swap is to reduce waste of single-use costumes and reuse them instead of sending them to a landfill. It's a great way to save money and recycle! There will be costumes available for adults and kids too.
If you have an old costume that you aren't going to wear again, you can bring it to the event location prior to Oct. 6. The costumes will all be cleaned and sorted for an easier shopping experience. Once you drop off your costume, you'll receive a ticket that you can use to redeem a new costume for free during the swap. Don't have an old costume? You can purchase a ticket at the door for only five dollars.
The event will take place at Studio Paint bar, and there will be more activities than just costume shopping! Several vendors will be popping up at the studio, and there will be a bar available to purchase wine and beer.
Get your hair styled at the Blo Dry Bar stall, then head over to The Ten Spot to get a mini nail application. Participate in an all-natural makeup tutorial by Clean Beauty. You'll definitely want to snap some photos after these treatments, so head over to Crown Studio's selfie station with your new costume and get some pics! The entire event is free with a ticket.
To drop off a costume, visit Studio Paint Bar from Tuesday - Friday 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., or Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can also drop costumes off at Port Credit Zest For Living, click here for their hours.
