Can you iron polyester costume?
The trouble with ironing polyester is that it’s basically made of plastic and will melt if an iron is too hot. It gets burn marks very easily too. It’s best to play it safe with polyester and not subject it to direct heat.
Can you steam Halloween costume?
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.
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.
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.
