The Best DIY Halloween Costumes

Kids standing in front of home in Halloween costumesHalloween is a time for trick or treating, spooky-fun parties and lots of candy. But before you can take part in Halloween festivities, you must choose your costume. The average person spends $74 dollars on a Halloween costume.

Are You Looking for Somewhere to Store Your Do It Yourself Halloween Costume?

After the Halloween fun is over, you are probably looking for a place to store your costume. Instead of letting it take up room in a drawer or the closet, consider utilizing a storage unit. A storage unit is a good costume storage idea because it will keep your costume out of the way and in a secure location for future Halloween fun! At Store Here, we have storage units ranging from 5X5 to 10X20, and every size in between. If your costume has been made from sensitive materials like paper, leather or fabric, consider utilizing a climate controlled storage unit.
