Use These Awesome Costume Ideas for Halloween

Jun 25, 2008
Coming up with fun and exciting Halloween costumes can become a family activity. There are so many different types of costumes that you may find you have to narrow down your choices to pick the right one. Those who are daring enough make their own Halloween costumes instead of purchasing one.

For young girls, the old standby is the princess costume: after all, all little girls like to dress up as a princess. If you have a young daughter and are at a loss for ideas, your child is sure to be pleased with this classic. Other favorite costumes for girls are cats, Disney princesses such as Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, witches and pumpkins.

Throughout time, there have been costumes that both genders have chosen more often than any other, and for girls, it is the princess costume. This is not to say that witches, pumpkins and kitty cats are not favorites also however the princess costume is a time-tested favorite.

The most common costumes for adult women and men include witches, pirates, vampires, cats, clowns, fairies, gypsy, superhero, and ghosts. Adults love to dress up for Halloween also and you shouldn't be stumped when you are thinking about what you will be this year.

When shopping for Halloween costumes you have a few options: you could go to a department store, a specialty costume shop, or you could make your own costumes. Halloween costumes can be found almost anywhere as the holiday approaches; even groceries often sell costumes! This is fine if you are not very picky about what costume you will get. However, this severely limits your selection. For accessories like face paint, department stores are good places around Halloween.

There are costume shops dedicated to holidays like Halloween and costume parties that occur throughout the year. Many of these shops have whatever you are looking for. For instance, if you want to be someone out of the Renaissance times then you can find this too. You can find any type of costume you are looking for in a costume shop. Many of the costumes that you can find include cartoon characters, figures from movies, and many more. Some costume shops will work with you to help you build the type of costume you want to be if they don't have the specific one you are looking for. Some of the costume shops can be rather pricey the more extravagant you want to be. However, many costume shops allow you to rent the Halloween costumes so you don't have to worry about paying a lot of money.

If you don't have a lot of money and you are looking for costume ideas then the most common cheap costumes for boys and girls are witches and vampires. This is because all they need is black clothing, a cape, and a black witch hat, and then do their make-up. You will also need fangs for the vampire, but these costumes are the easiest and the cheapest to make when you don't have a lot of money.

The most common Halloween costumes are common for a reason - they are classics. Sometimes the simplest ideas for Halloween costumes are the best - and easiest to find, all of these old standbys being widely available at costume shops, department stores, even your own crafty hands! edited by Hetsil Protage
