Costumes are perhaps the most important part of any Halloween party. They are certainly a lot of fun! Halloween gives us all the perfect excuse to dress-up in outrageous, weird or unusual outfits and to release our wild side. Whether you’re throwing a Halloween party yourself or you’ve been invited to one as a guest, you will need a costume of some sort. Here we offer hints on how to make your own costume, as well as suggestions of where to shop.
Halloween costumes come in all sizes, for adults, kids and toddlers. If you’re having a family party or going in a group of friends, then you might want to consider a theme to coordinate your costumes. There are lots of costume ideas for couples too.
Of course, there are the more traditional ideas such as dressing as a zombie, witch, vampire or ghost. However, anything goes at Halloween and these days people dress in all sorts of fancy dress costumes. If you’re throwing a party, a fun idea is to choose a theme, for example, a decade, such as the 60s, 70s or 80s. Your guests will enjoy the challenge of finding the most creative costume.
Another idea is to have a competition and offer a prize for the best costume. Your guests will go to extra efforts and really get into the spirit (pardon the pun!).
If you’re on a budget and looking for a cheap Halloween costume, you might want to make your own. Thrift stores are good places to find inexpensive clothing that can be creatively transformed into a homemade costume. You can then buy accessories to add the finishing touches, such as vampire fangs or a warty witch nose. Things such as masks, wigs and hats can be purchased for just a few dollars.
If you’ve left organizing your costume until the last minute, it’s worth checking online stores. Several of them realize that many people need to buy an outfit in a hurry and offer very quick shipping to ensure you get your costume in time for the big day.
