Goodwill is partnering with local cosplayer, Shelley Seastrix to host a panel at this year’s Tucson Comic Con, to share how you can upcycle materials from Goodwill to create your cosplay costumes. Shopping for your costume elements at Goodwill is not only affordable, it also supports Goodwill’s mission to provide jobs and training for people to gain skills to achieve independence. Sourcing from Goodwill is also the most sustainable – helping the environment by keeping stuff out of the landfills!

Tucson Comic Con is on November 1-3 at the Tucson Convention Center.

This Halloween, show off your unique Halloween costume for the chance to win big with Goodwill. Back by popular demand, we are accepting pet costume entries again this year! Of course, human costume entries are still welcome, not as cute but still fun! To win, costumes must be made mostly or entirely from items purchased at Goodwill. For complete rules, click on the rules link below.

To enter, click here!

Enter your photos now through November 4. VOTING begins November 5-11.

*Votes are only being counted through entries submitted through the Arizona Daily Star platform.

Get the most votes by sharing your entry with friends and family! If you post your costume on social media, remember to tag Goodwill on FB and Instagram at @goodwillsouthernaz and include the hashtag #gwcostumezone and include the link to the Arizona Daily Star voting page! Winning photos will be determined by the number of votes received.
