Prank You Very Much: How Retailers Celebrated April Fool’s Day

printable has recently announced the launch of printable costumes beginning next month. Customers may download a .PDF file of the product they like and print it out at home. This new line of costume technology will be available April 2014 on the Halloween retailer’s website.

“This is a very exciting day for the Halloween costume industry,” says CEO and founder Tom Fallenstein. “With the increasing popularity of do-it-yourself projects on websites like Pinterest, we knew that the next logical step for our company was to place the power in the consumer’s hands.”

Examples of printable costumes offered include Chewbacca from “Star Wars,” an infant bunny costume, and a 1920s flapper dress.

Those who wish to be the very first to download and print their own costumes can do so at The .PDF files can be purchased for immediate use, with no shipping costs required.

Homemade costumes are not new to either the holiday of Halloween or to itself. In 2013, the costume retailer unveiled the Make a Mask feature, where customers can submit their own images to be transferred onto a large, foam mask, allowing costume-wearers creativity and personalization for their big night.
