What do I do if my costume is too big?
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.
What size Halloween costume should I get?
If in doubt between two sizes, it’s usually best to order the larger size as sizes for seasonal costumes tend to run small. As an option, many customers will purchase both sizes and return the one that doesn’t fit. Sizing information is provided to us by the manufacturer.
How do you make a big costume fit?
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.
What age should you stop dressing up for Halloween?
Most teenagers stop dressing up and trick-or-treating somewhere between the ages of 12 and 16 — but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad manners for them to go door-to-door, as long as they are polite while out on the streets.
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.
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.

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.

Hang the outfit up near, but not in, your bathroom’s shower. The steam, with its moisture and heat from the shower will accumulate and soften the shallow wrinkles from your costume.
