Consumers spend a lot of money on costumes renting, buying, or making their own for the Halloween season. $1.4 billion is spent on adult costumes and $1.1 billion is spent on children’s costumes. Costumes can be expensive, so it is important if you are storing them, to keep them in the best condition if you plan on using them again.
Halloween costumes need to be properly prepared and stored correctly so they can be ready for future use. Halloween costumes can be stored anywhere -closet, basement, attic, or storage unit.
