It’s often difficult to select the right costume with so many choices available. It is our aim to make your decision easy and we have listed ideas for you to consider.
The first question to ask yourself is – What is Halloween and why do we celebrate it?
Halloween is one of the oldest holidays and is celebrated all around the world. It owes its origins to the Celts and records have been traced back as far as the 5th century B.C.
It was their belief that on October 31st each year people who had passed away during that year would come back and inhabit another body, either human or animal. By dressing up, or wearing masks, the Celts believed that they could scare off the spirits and it is this tradition that we celebrate today on Halloween.
These days there are a large variety of Halloween Costumes and accessories available, such as:
Adult Halloween Costumes
Mens Halloween Costumes
Womens Halloween Costumes
Costumes Of Cleopatra
Childrens Halloween Costumes
Although adults in ancient times were the people wearing costumes and masks, these days Halloween is a fun celebration and children love dressing up to celebrate Halloween.
Couples Halloween Costumes
A unique idea is for couples to wear identical costumes, for example Batman and Batgirl, Warlock and Witch, etc.
Dog Halloween Costumes
The Celts believed that the spirits could inhabit the body of animals so what better way to help your dog ward off “evil spirits” than to dress him/her in their very own Halloween Costume.
What better way to keep the unwanted spirits away from your home and yard than to decorate it with things that create an atmosphere as well as frighten off the spirits.
No Halloween is complete without a party and which is made special by the right kind of food, music, games and Halloween movies.
Scary Halloween Costumes
