PPM’s Costume Planning Advice For All

At PPM, we LOVE Halloween! Our employees love to dress up and we highly encourage them to! So, what ingredients does it take to get a great costume together? Here’s what our employees have to say…
“The more blood, the better!” –Davorin, 806 W. Belmont
“Always make it funny!” –Jenna, 1000 N. LaSalle
“I always get my costumes at Lover’s Lane. I swear they have good costumes! …Seriously!” – Michelle, 806 W. Belmont
“Go to resale shops or even the army surplus store on Lincoln Ave to find pieces to make the best costume at an affordable price!” –Katie, 806 W. Belmont
“Since I was a kid, I’ve always dressed as something very phallic…. A banana, corn on the cob, a HOT DOG! … Just choose a theme.  Something that really speaks to you.” – Dan, 507 W. Diversey
