Halloween Costume Contest At Goodwill

Make Yourself A Scary Or Creative Halloween Costume

LABELLE, FL. -- Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida is on the lookout for the best do-it-yourself Halloween costume in our area in it's new “Thrift-n-Treat Halloween Photo Contest.” Entrants are asked to submit photos of themselves in Halloween costumes made primarily of items found at their local Goodwill Retail And Donation Centers.

While Halloween stores offer costumes, most are mass-produced. Goodwill offers affordable options for creative shoppers to create one-of-a-kind outfits without breaking the bank. With items in every shape, size, and color — and from various eras — shoppers can rest assured they won’t run into anyone else wearing the exact same costume.

“Every year, budget-conscious shoppers come to our stores looking to make unique costumes,” says Goodwill spokeswoman Kirsten O’Donnell. “The Halloween photo contest is our way of rewarding their creativity.”

The first-prize winner will receive $100 to spend at a local Goodwill store. Second and third place will also receive awards. To qualify for prizes, entrants must be residents of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry or Glades counties age 18-up.

Entries can be submitted through October 20 on Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida’s Facebook page ( From October 21-29, the contest will be open for voting. Winners will be announced on Halloween.
