Homemade Halloween costumes often make not only a cheaper costume, but a better one.
Impact Thrift Stores is challenging shoppers to take the DIY costume route with the chance to win a prize.
The challenge: Create a Halloween costume from Impact Thrift Store finds.
Interested? Take a photo of the Impact Thrift Store costume and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, Oct. 17. The winner, which will be chosen at random, will receive a $25 gift certificate to Impact's stores.
For shoppers not interested in making a costume from scratch, Impact stores also have a variety of new, ready-to-wear Halloween costumes, according to the non-profit's website.
