Halloween costumes, what you need to know!
Few people realize this....but there are a few important things that you need to know about your choice of Halloween fancy dress.
So before you go rushing out to buy a costume, read below to get your costume ideas and get the right costume for you.
Remember October 31st is Halloween, so don't leave it until October 30th to decide on a costume. Give yourself plenty of time. This is more so if you want to have a homemade Halloween costume. Believe me, I couldn't for the life of me find white face paint one year, completely sold out!
If you are thinking of making your own costume then make sure that the materials that you use are non flammable. There are likely to be candles around and possibly a bonfire, if you're in an area that allows them.
Consider the weather, especially in the northern hemisphere, at that time of year, its starting to get pretty chilly. If the party is outdoors then a costume that will provide some warmth or at least can hide your thermal undies.
When hiring a costume, make sure it is one that you can continue wearing. What I mean is, for example, a costume with a heavy plastic, over the head mask, can get a bit hot and stuffy to say the least. You will probably end up not being able to wear it for the whole evening. This will affect the overall look of your costume.
If you have your own favorite Halloween games and activities or scary costumes that you would like to share with others, I would love to see them, you can share them here...
Also, if there is Halloween food, you need access to your mouth! So, if you're spending money on a costume for hire, make sure that it's one that you will actually be able to wear for the length of the party!

Have you considered Couples Halloween Costumes? It's always fun to go as a matching pair; you don't have to be in a relationship with the person, a good friend will suffice! Another idea is to go with a theme for the family.
Halloween costumes were traditionally worn to ward off evil spirits by imitating them or placating them. Traditionally people wear costumes of ghosts, witches, devils, monsters, skeletons and vampires. There are lots of costume hire companies that provide costumes such as this and more.
In recent times, the variety of scary costume ideas has broadened to include science fiction themes, aliens and even super-heroes costumes. Star Trek, X Men, Spiderman costume, batman costume and Star Wars costumes to name a few.
If you don't want to go traditional, have a think about your favorite Horror Movies
, the ones with unusual or scary characters in them. I've met both Freddy Krueger and Dr Hannibal Lecter at a Halloween party.
Have you thought about having a
You could dress up as Edward the Vampire, Jacob the Werewolf, Bella or Alice for your Halloween Costumes!
Of course, you don't have to spend a fortune on a costume, just get some costume accessories such as axe through the head hat, some face paint, or a witches hat and broomstick. Utilize what clothes (preferably black) that you have in your wardrobe.
And don't forget to get your scary props to decorate the venue! One of my favorite is this tombstone...
Before you make your decision, check with the host whether there will be Halloween party games or activities such as a competition for the best scariest costume, because if that is one of the planned
then you might want to put in some extra thought and effort. I would, but then I always like to win, especially if there is a prize no matter how silly the prize may be!
