How do you fix a Halloween costume that 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.
How do you shrink Halloween costumes?
To try to shrink, wash the garment at the hottest water setting of your washing machine (only this garment, nothing else). After washing, place the garment inside a garment laundry bag or tied pillowcase and tumble in the dryer at its hottest setting for 10 minutes. Remove and try the garment on; if it fits, great.
How do you make clothes look old for Halloween?
Fabric tends to wear out faster in areas with the most friction: Knees, elbows, hems that drag the ground, places that are rubbed by straps or bags. To age a costume, you can fade or wear down the surface of the fabric in those areas. A bleach solution or dye remover can be used to selectively fade fabric.
Do Halloween costumes run small?

How do you resize a costume?
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. Make the costume smaller by sewing a tightening seam along parts of the costume that are too big.
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.
