Every October, the School of Communication's Theatre and Interpretation Center cleans out the storage supply for its costume shop. Everything from wedding dresses and vintage clothing to masks, glasses and shoes have been purchased, donated or specially created for Northwestern theatrical productions.

There's not enough room to store everything that is accumulated from a year's worth of performances, so the items find a new home at the annual costume shop Halloween sale.

The sale gives students a chance to find the perfect outfit for their zombie or princess costumes at rock-bottom prices.

The costume sale is held Oct. 16-17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the prop shop/soft goods area on the first floor of the Theatre and Interpretation Center.
