Costume swap encourages a greener Halloween.

Goblins and ghouls on the hunt for new costumes this Halloween could score some new duds during National Costume Swap Day.

Lantzville’s 4Cats Art Studio is hosting the swap Oct. 13, from 4-6 p.m., at its location at 1-7221 Lantzville Rd. Prior to the event the studio is asking people to bring their clean costumes to the store by Tuesday (Oct. 9), so staff can sort through them.

“Everyone has a stash of costumes from Halloween gone by that they don’t use any more,” said Tara Gray, 4Cats curator, in a press release. “We’re putting those old costumes to good use and making them new to you while helping families save money and live lightly.”

People who bring costumes to exchange will receive a ticket for each one, which will allow them to choose another costume brought to the swap. People are also asked to bring a non-perishable food item for Loaves and Fishes Food Bank.
