Can you tailor a Halloween costume?
If your costume is too big, you can add strips of adhesive velcro or use safety pins. You can also take it to a tailor or sew it yourself.
How can I shorten my Halloween costume?
This can be accomplished in a number of ways. Obviously the most ideal solution would be to have the hem properly sewn or taken up using a fusible web product from your local craft or fabric store. When this isn’t possible, a quick hem fix can be accomplished by taking up the hem with safety pins or even masking tape.

How can I make my Halloween mask tighter?
If the mask is too small, then extend the slit in the back of the mask with an X-acto knife or a small pair of scissors. Cut the slit up one half inch at a time and keep trying on the mask until it fits. Once it fits to your satisfaction, use a paper hole-puncher and punch a hole at the top of the slit.
How can I make my costume fit better?
Open the seams along the part of the costume you wish to make bigger by using a seam ripper or scissors. Sew the fabric piece you have cut along one side of the seam and then along the other, according to how much extra space is needed. This technique is called adding gussets.
Can you shrink a Halloween mask?
Cut the slit up one half inch at a time and try on the mask until it fits. Using a hairdryer, apply heat to each trouble area for a few minutes. The heat will soften the latex and make it more willing to bend to a new shape. The heat will not cause the latex to shrink but it will cause the PB-300 to activate.

“ Dressing up as a hula dancer, hula being a significant part of the Hawaiian culture, without any consideration or respect for its origins also makes it a form of cultural appropriation— which only makes it more offensive.”
Is dressing up as a nun offensive?
The very nature of being a nun is being chaste and to “sex up ” the habit is to make fun of that very vow and promise to God that Catholic sisters take. I think if you wear a nun costume, not necessarily as a joke, but as something to just dress up as and pretend with, there really is nothing wrong.
