Who doesn’t know Halloween? Why it’s the best time to put your ideas to work when it comes to scary costumes. You might even win a costume competition, with this in mind let’s look at some ideas that will help you get the perfect costume.
The Spirit Halloween
As one might know, Halloween has been around for some time, and it comes from old Celtic harvest festivals. That makes it quite old in terms of age; it is celebrated by Christians and non-Christians alike. In recent decades, Halloween has picked up a rather commercial vibe. Many see it as a fun night when you get the chance to dress up as a scary monster from a movie, book, or just one completely made up. Recent trends have made it possible for people to enjoy not only scary costumes but other costumes like celebrity’s impersonations, favorite TV characters or favorite comic book heroes.
Another important aspect of Halloween is the trick or treat activities that usually take place among younger children. They move from door to door and ask for candy if candy is not offered the “trick” part comes into play and the asker can scare or play mischief on the owner of the house.
People found other ways to enjoy Halloween as it grows in popularity. Some like to watch a horror movie or play pranks on friends and relatives. You can also go for a walk and visit some haunted attractions.
The carving of pumpkins into jack o lanterns is another great way to enjoy Halloween; this is more on the classical side of the holiday. Although in the beginning, pumpkins were turned into scary faces that would lit by using a candle, they can now represent just about anything as people are letting their ideas come to life.
Halloween Costume Ideas
It is the central Halloween point, as everybody dresses up and tries to have fun. Because of the widespread that this holiday has. It is possible to spend your Halloween night not only with your friends and family but you can also go to a pub, bar or a club. It is really good in terms of a variety of costumes as more people mean more costumes and lots of fun. You might get the chance to participate in a costume competition as this kind of event are quite common.
When you choose a costume you have to think about it a little, do you want a classical one, one that features scary elements, or do you just want to dress up like somebody else.
Classical Type of Halloween Costume Ideas
If you want to go for a classical type of costume a scary one you have lots of references from where you can get inspiration. There are werewolves, killer nurses, psychotic doctors, witches, famous TV and movie characters, and lots of others. You won’t fail with a classical costume as it already has the key points made for a Halloween party, dismantled limbs, blood, gore, so on and so forth. Be careful though as not all costumes fit a person try to pick one that will match your stature as well as your body type. Also, always add some personal touch, like putting shades on a Frankenstein’s monster costume.
The other type of costumes, the ones you wear and dress up like a superhero and or a celebrity, should be worn when you are sure the party you are going to will feature such costumes. It’s not a good choice to go dressed like Batman (although Batman rules) to a classic Halloween party. The same goes here when choosing a costume. Try to find one that matches your stature and body type, go for a personal touch.
Witch Halloween Costume Ideas
This type of costume is one of the most common ones you will see. It does not mean we should look away from a Halloween witch costume as it is a classical one and can always bring something new to the table.
The first thing you have to do is to make sure what type of witch you’ll be. And will you be the one with the broom or the one with the cat or other animals, or be both. It is the most common approach. Leave your skirt on or go for a pair of jeans and switch to a Samantha style, easier to pull off.
You can also go out of the pattern and choose a witch from the video game, video games have proven to be an inspiration in the past years as they bring new elements into the light. Do not forget to add your touch to the whole costume, just to be sure in case you meet a witch just like you. You can always dress your witch an astronaut costume or just the helmet, this should be a rather interesting twist.
