How To Decide On A Halloween Costume

May 3, 2008
For many people, choosing a Halloween costume is a big part of the fun of the holiday. Costumes definitely add their own spark to the party, whether it is kids Halloween costumes for trick-or-treating, or sexy Halloween costumes for an adult party.

Deciding on Halloween costumes does require a little bit of time on your part. If you are looking at online Halloween costumes, keep in mind that you will need time for the costume to be delivered. With kids and teens Halloween costumes, you may need to try on a few to find the perfect fit. And finding the perfect Halloween costume goes beyond just finding one that is the right size. Here are some of the considerations you should think about when choosing a Halloween costume.

Where are you wearing it?

For adults, Halloween costumes range from modest to sexy to scary. Even kids and teens Halloween costumes come in quite a variety. Often, you will need to think about where you will be wearing your Halloween costume. Kids Halloween costumes may be limited by school dress codes or rules. Adult Halloween costumes may be under similar regulations if your office allows you to dress up. And keep in mind that the sexy Halloween costume that you wear to your best friend's party may not be appropriate for going trick-or-treating in.

Scary or not?

Many people associate Halloween with the creepier side of life - ghosts, witches, the un-dead, and similar creepy-crawlies. However, this doesn't mean that you have to douse yourself in fake blood to have a good time. Many people opt for funny or whimsical Halloween costumes instead of the gory ones.

Do you want something sexy?

Sexy Halloween costumes can be a definite way to attract attention, especially if you are normally a pretty modest person. Several styles of sexy Halloween costumes are available - everything from vampires to school girls and all the characters in between.

Do you want people to know who you are?

Part of the fun of Halloween costumes is the anonymity that they provide. So while sexy Halloween costumes may reveal more of you, other costumes can conceal you. Wig, makeup, masks, and prosthetic teeth, noses, and other body parts can help conceal your identity.

How do you feel about masks?

Masks can be a great way to hide who you are, but they definitely have their disadvantages. For instance, if your adult Halloween costume comes with a full mask, it can be difficult to talk to others or enjoy the food being served at the party while staying in character.

What is your budget?

You Halloween costume will definitely be influenced by your budget. If you have money to burn, online Halloween costumes can range from a few dollars to several hundred. If your budget is really tight, consider purchasing some Halloween costume accessories and using items from your current wardrobe to complete the look. For example, you could easily become a zombie wearing your own street clothes but buying some fun makeup, fake blood, and false teeth.

These are just some of the things to consider when choosing your favorite Halloween costume. With a little thought and consideration you can find the costume that is right for you.
