Every time Halloween rolls around I'm reminded of how much space in my closet the costumes (Princess Leia braids included) I've accumulated over the years take up. Not having the guts to toss them (I mean, what if I need them??), means I'll just be adding another one on to the pile this year... or will I?
If you want to try something new, rather than throwing a costume party the night of Halloween, invite your friends to raid their closets and bring all of their spooky paraphernalia over before the holiday for a resourceful swap party! I've borrowed and swapped costumes before but hosting a party takes it to a new level of fun. Plus, you never know what will come out of your friends' closets!
