Gallery: ANNOUNCING: Green Halloween Costume Contest!


Halloween is tomorrow and we can’t wait to see the incredible costumes that you’ve cooked up, so don’t forget to participate in our annual Green Halloween costume contest! And if you have little ones (or like looking at pics of cute little ones in green halloween costumes), check out the Inhabitots Green Halloween contest for kids >.

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays of the year, and one of the best parts of Halloween is seeing people get creative and resourceful with their costumes. Anyone can buy a plastic / spandex costume at a drugstore, but not only is that boring and generic — it is the opposite of environmentally friendly. We encourage you all to get inspired and resourceful this year and go green with your Halloween costumes! This could mean cobbling together a great DIY idea from items you already have around your house, or picking up some old items at the local charity shop to create your costume.

Enter your Green Halloween costume today!

    I have three daughters. In the past I have spent $70 for halloween costumes. When my husband and I started looking at where waisted money was going so we started making their costumes. I take the girls to the library and I find how-to costume books two months before halloween and I let them choose which one they want to be. All the costumes are easy to make and use items that are to be recycled like, boxes, stryrofoam, bubble wrap, and anything. We have rubbed off on some of the parents in our community and our local costume contest has gotten more competative since I started tell them how little all of their costumes cost. Love the prizes in your contest and love your website.

    This won\’t win you any awards, but if you need something for the kids for halloween, Reenita posted a great article on how to create a Green Monster Mask for Halloween

    This is great to have on hand, not only for Halloween but also when the power goes out. My kids totally freak out to the darkness. We have street lights that keep our place lit up at night so the kids are not used to total darkness in the home. And let’s face it, people are bad about keeping batteries on hand, right?

    Thanks for a great giveaway!
