Why Go to Party City?
Party City is known for their wide variety of costumes and decorations. There are currently 700 stores nationwide. During Halloween, the demand for costumes is very high. Prices range from $5 in the clearance section of kids all the way to $60 for a woman’s costumes. That’s not even including the accessories that are necessary for the costume you buy. To me, this price range seems a bit outrageous. However, people still insist on buying a brand new costume for these prices. I don’t see why is it necessary to buy a costume that you will most likely wear once in your life. Why spend these outrageous prices when you can make a fun costume right at your home, using things you can find around the house. Instead of buying a costume at Party City, you can substitute it for a nice homemade costume and save at least half your money. For instance, all you need is some old T-shirts, fabric glue, and a few hours to make an easy owl costume. You could also make a mask for your costume. The mask would only need a couple pieces of construction paper and something to tie it to go around your head. Another creative idea would be a Rubik’s cube. All you need is just a box and some construction paper. Or you could make yourself a superhero! All you need is to wear tights and a graphic felt cape. You can be as creative as you want! Although these might not be your typical and fantastic costumes, these costumes would be fun, creative, unique, and needless to say save you some money.
