How to Create a Halloween Costume with Polly Plastics to Impress Contest Judges

September 30, 2018 Cory Sursely

Anyone can pull together a last minute, uninspired Halloween costume that may or may not be adequate to attend Halloween festivities. When this happens, typically a crucial item is missing or doesn’t look right because there wasn’t enough time to find it or the store had a limited supply. However, “originality and attention to details” are what makes a costume more exciting and even a contender for winning a contest, according to John Crafton, a two-time Halloween costume winner who answered the question on Quora.com, “Have you ever won a Halloween costume contest, and what was the costume?”

According to Halloween Industry Stats & Trends (www.hiaonline.com), in 2017, 179 million people celebrated Halloween by decorating, pumpkin carving, etc., and 69% of those dressed up. With a little imagination, more time to prepare, and moldable thermoplastic, you can create a stand out costume with details that looks unlike any of the other approximate 123+ million other costumes.

Polly Plastics moldable plastic helps make any costume look more authentic, either by enhancing an existing costume or by creating your own design. The plastic comes in pellet form, strips or sheets. The product can be bent and molded when heated above 150 degree F., using hot water or the heat of a blow dryer. Additionally, it dries and hardens within minutes so you won’t have to wait to use what you create. You can make masks, wizard staffs, sabers, crowns, antlers, jewelry and other props, just to name a few. There are many tutorials online showing how to use the moldable plastic. Visit www.pollyplastics.com, or our YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram. If you make a costume yourself, it will undoubtedly be more unique than anything you can find in a store. Moldable plastic supplies can be ordered at www.pollyplastics.com. According to the company’s owner, “We only sell the best products available at affordable prices”. Make this Halloween one of the best with an original costume at an affordable price.
