National Costume Swap Day is EEK-o-fabulous!

Little did we suspect when we came up with the idea for National Costume Swap Day that swapping costumes is the new black!


We're not kidding.

We announced our self-proclaimed National Costume Swap Day on September 23. A little more than two weeks later, we had registered 75 swaps in 23 states, D.C. and Canada!

Last week, Good Morning America did a segment and in the last few days, TV stations in more than half a dozen markets have interviewed costume swap organizers.

Swaps are large and small, in homes, community centers, stores, churches, libraries and anywhere else you can pull people together so they can exchange costumes for free and keep them from landfills. And they'll be going on all through the month of October. So if you haven't gotten your costumes yet, instead of buying, check out the registered swaps or start one yourself.

And if you want to register a swap, it's not too late for that either. Just do it here
