Don’t Let Your Broken Bone Stop You From Trick-Or-Treating in Style

Broken bones can be a real bummer, but that shouldn’t keep you from trick or treating! 

CastCoverz! has plenty of options to help incorporate your cast or brace into your Halloween costume OR to be the Halloween statement on its own!

Working around a cast, boot, sling or crutches may seem daunting when trying to put together a costume, but we have tons of creative options at CastCoverz! to make your costume work!

Here are a few CastCoverz! products we think will help you feel better, heal better, and still be a part of Halloween festivities! 

Tubez! in Wicked Webs

Wearing a brace is scary enough! With Tubez! you can conceal your brace, picc-line or a tattoo in “Wicked Webs” (also available in Tubez! for Legs, Armz!, Bootz! and Legz!), and turn into a spider superhero for Halloween. Tubez! can also be worn as an undersleeve to prevent skin abrasions. Please measure carefully because each Tubez! is custom and can’t be returned due to incorrect sizing measurements or otherwise.



Bootz! in Dark Skulls


If you’re looking to be a skeleton for Halloween, this Bootz! cover in “Dark Skulls” is perfect for you! (Also available in Armz! and Legz!) Protect your boot, cover your toes and those stick-to-everything Velcro straps. Easy on/off design with no elastic, Velcro, buttons, or zippers!

If it’s raining (or snowing for those of you up north;) don’t forget your Slickerz! leg cast cover. Our closed-toe design and WEATHERproof fabric keep your leg cast, bandages, and toes clean and dry from rain, slush, and snow. A drawstring cord prevents the elements from going down your leg, too!
