IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Lucas Farms neighborhood in Iowa City is raising funds for activities and improvements in the area with a costume sale.

Most of the costumes are unique, repurposed pieces from Judy Nyren's personal collection.

Nyren, who volunteers at the sale, worked in the costume industry for most of her life and is happy her work can bring in proceeds for her neighborhood.

"Some of it might go toward our parks, some of it might go to movie nights at the school," Nyren, who's part of the Lucas Farms Steering Committee, said. "but we're just trying to generate some more activities in our neighborhood for the folks that live there."

Costumes not assembled by Nyren have also been donated to the sale.

The sale's first run was last year and the community hopes that all costumes will be sold this Halloween, making this the final year for the sale.
