Halloween Costumes Transform Everyone For One Night

On All Hallow’s Eve, another name for Halloween, kids and adults can be whoever they choose to be. It is fun for them to decide what Halloween costumes to wear. There are new TV and movie characters to select from every year.

Also, be prepared to encounter Dracula in his sweeping cape and blood dripping from his sharp fangs. Vampira and her like will be out in droves. The popularity of the movies and television shows about vampires will make sure of that.

Cute little toddlers will impersonate their favorite cartoon characters. See Batman, Spiderman and Superman. It’s not only the boys who can be super. There is wonder woman and batwoman going door to door as well. They all hold out their trick or treat bags to be filled with wrapped candy.

One beautiful little girl made the rounds in her custom-made genie costume. Her mother made it after the child picked out the pattern. Sewn in pale blue silk with a pink chiffon overlay, it was quite fancy. The top had puffy sleeves and gold braid trimming with tassels at the waistline. The harem pants had gold trim at the waist too.

Not all mothers can sew and for them, but there are dozens of princess dresses modeled after Disney characters for sale. They come with a wand or a bejeweled tiara. Scary rubber masks are available that look like Freddy Krueger or Jason. Some little boys carry an imitation chain-saw to complete the fright factor.

One good improvisational costume is that of the gypsy. All that’s needed is a long skirt, a peasant blouse and lots and lots of costume jewelry. It can be fun to create your own costume out of things available in the house. A boy can put together a hobo outfit with a handkerchief on a stick and an old hat.

Adult costumes include Elvira, a character from the Addams Family TV show and a scantily clad dancing girl. A man or woman can be a chef (with an appropriate hat and apron)or a bear or even pose as the village idiot with a t-shirt that claims that title. One costume was a beer can which was very funny.

You can shop online for fabulous Halloween costumes. Those made for Renaissance Faire wear are beautifully sewn and intended for more than once a year use. At least one woman at every adult party arrives in a skimpy tart outfit. Men cheer and their wives give her dirty looks.

When one of the guys dresses up as a woman, it’s so fun to watch him hobble around the room in high heels. Perhaps his wife will dress up as a man. Or, you can put on a long black coat, carry a shovel and go as an undertaker.

Stores sell Casper the Friendly Ghost and Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street. Kids love to be scared, but firemen and policemen (and women) are still popular Halloween Costumes. There will still be a few Darth Vadars out on the streets and Scooby Doo as well as the big bad wolf. Be whatever you want to be for the evening of the full moon. You know that’s the night the werewolves roam freely through the neighborhood.
