How To Come Up With Ideas For Your Halloween Costume

By Phil Sikes

Halloween is a time for kids and adults alike to find excuses to dress up as something else. Kids usually choose their favorite characters from cartoons, books, comic books, movies, and television shows. Adults have a lot more options, since some adult costumes arenít appropriate for children, such as a French maid uniform. There is no shortage of Halloween costume ideas for any age group.

This is a time for people to get creative. You can either wear tried and true costumes such as witch costumes and pirate costumes. Or, you can search for unique Halloween costume ideas by visiting more eclectic costume shops or designing your own look from scratch.

Here are some Halloween costume ideas that will help get the creative juices flowing.

New Spins on Old Favorites

Would you like to dress up in a traditional Halloween favorite such as a monster or witch? If you would like to do something different, try to find interesting Halloween costume ideas using the old favorites as a spin off. For example, if you want to dress up as a witch, you donít need to find an ugly witch costume to get the job done. You can create your own costume and give the character your own unique spin.

Superhero Costumes

It is also fun to dress up as superheroes such as Spider Man, Superman, and Wonder Woman. However, you donít always need to dress up as an established superhero. How about making up your own? You can be as silly or serious as you want. The beauty of this is that you can create a hero using any theme you like. Depending on your audience, you can make your hero comical, farcical, cute, ugly, etc. Itís completely up to you.

Other Halloween Costume Ideas

Of course, it is possible to create a costume that is completely traditional. If you want to dress up as a black cat and wear the traditional black cat clothes, that is also okay. To find good ideas visit your local costume shop, read some comic books, watch some cartoons, and take in a few flicks. You will certainly find something that will inspire you. Remember to find a costume that suits your personality. Part of creating a successful Halloween costume is to play the part of the character throughout the evening.
