Whenever October rolls around, the hunt for the best Halloween costume ideas starts among every individual who desire to participate in the festivities. Of course, the main aim is to look your best in whatever costume chosen, be it as a scary creature of the underworld, a sexy vampire, or a sassy princess in full regalia.
Here are a few of the most fashionable ideas for costumes during the Halloween season. These ideas can be altered to fit the wearer’s age, style and preference. For example, the superhero costumes can be made sexier to fit the adult female while the kids can have loose-fitting costumes to allow for greater physical movement.
Butterflies have always been excellent Halloween costume ideas mainly because the wings can be personalized in terms of size, shape and colors. You may find yourself meeting others wearing butterfly costumes but you can always do something to make your costume stand out. For example, instead of the just the wings in glitters, sequins and sparkles, your dress can also be outfitted with the same materials for a unified butterfly look.
Anybody can be a superhero during Halloween. Kids can be any superhero they want to be including Spider-Man, Batman and Superman for the boys and Wonder Woman, Super Girl and Liberty Bell. Search the Internet and the comic books for inspiration as to the superheroes that your kids can become for a day.
Yet another popular Halloween costume idea is the space invaders, extra terrestrials and aliens. You can let your imagination run wild with the ideas for the costumes with accessories like laser guns, outlandish headgear and extra arms and legs. Most online sites selling Halloween costumes offer these alien outfits that you may then alter to suit your idea of a scary space invader.
Now you see him, now you don’t. This is the idea behind the magician’s costume with the long cape to cover up the face and body when desired. The costume can even be recycled for a Dracula costume next year. For example, the cape and suit can still be the costume but your child can have Dracula’s makeup and he can put on a set of fangs.
Prince and Princess
In any list of Halloween costume ideas, the prince and princess outfits for the little boys and girls in the family are almost always included and for good reasons, too. Halloween is not just about being scary to others but it is also about make-believe and being a prince and princess in America is definitely a fairy tale.
The great thing about prince and princess costumes is the wide variety of choices available. Little girls can wear gowns in various designs along with tiaras, scepters and other accessories fit for princesses while little boys have bright buttons, rickrack and even swords to make them look like true princes.
Other Halloween costume ideas include little lambs, spring chickens, vampires, werewolves and witches. Your choices are virtually limitless and that’s what makes Halloween such a fun tradition in our part of the world.
