Need Inspiration for Last-Minute Kids’ Halloween Costumes?

Here are our favourite kid's costume suggestions from Value Village. Can you tell which ones are new and which ones are DIY?


Try as you might to teach your kids to not procrastinate, it’s easy to put off finding Halloween costumes until the last minute. Inevitably, you spend the afternoon of October 31st on your hands and knees rooting through the back of the closet, trying to find old dressing gowns that can be turned into Jedi robes or Queen Elsa gowns.

Luckily, Value Village has your back as a one-stop spot for both new costumes and secondhand clothes that, with a little elbow grease and Fairy Godmother dust, can be transformed into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Plus, as an added incentive, Value Village has costumes for the whole family (including Rover!).
