Halloween Costumes - Let's Get Freaky!

There really are no rules to successful Halloween costumes but keep reading for some great ideas!

Halloween is a fun and freakish annual celebration which occurs on October 31st. You will find Halloween traditions aplenty at this time of year including trick-or-treating, Halloween fancy dress costume parties, bonfires, storytelling, and watching horror movies. Many creepy pictures or images are often associated with Halloween and used at costume parties and events including images of death, evil, and even mythical monsters. The tradition of dressing up in scary costumes dates back to the Middle Ages, where destitute people would visit door to door begging for food in exchange for prayers for the dead. Halloween costumes in modern days, often consist of supernatural themed characters such as ghosts, skeletons, witches, ghouls, vampires and devils. Popular Halloween costumes also include horror tv or movie character costumes, as well as more generalised characters like princesses, fairy, pirate and sailor costume themes in their original state or slashed and bloodied up to fit in more with the horror costume theme of Halloween! Halloween has become extremely popular in recent years, extending from its roots in North America to South America, continental Europe, New Zealand, and Australia.

If you plan on celebrating Halloween this year by attending a Halloween costume party, or by taking some children trick-or-treating, then it's also time to go on the hunt for the best Halloween costumes around! There is a whole world of possibilities when it comes to men's and women's Halloween costumes, from the spookiest, scariest fancy dress costumes and gruesome horror costumes, to a dancing chicken or comical cow costume. There are many factors to consider when choosing great Halloween costumes, so use the following quick tips to help you decide which Halloween costumes will be best for you:

1. Choose Halloween costumes appropriate for the situation

An important factor to consider when selecting your Halloween costumes! Let's say you are taking your children (or someone else's) trick-or-treating, and the child or children are quite young, we think it's probably not the best idea to dress up as a rusty knife wielding, headless serial killer with fake blood dripping from your hands (as fun as that sounds!). If it is a Halloween work function you're required to attend, a sexy, flirty nurse costume may do less than impress your boss or workmates! Maybe Halloween night calls for something sexy and spooky, so you’d like to give your partner a little surprise in the bedroom? We suggest not carrying that out in a long, modest Halloween witch costume, with a bright green face and large black hat! So you can understand how important it is to select an adult  Halloween fancy dress costume you look and feel great in, but is also appropriate for the situation you are in!

2. Select a Halloween costume which complements you

Have confidence in your Halloween costumes! Know that the creepy horror costume you are wearing complements your size, shape, eyes, nose etc! The sure fire way to feel hot to trot, is to choose a Halloween costume which shows off your best features. Do you have a great bust? If so, why not try a Halloween costume with a scoop or v-neck design and get those assets in the party mood!  Do you have great legs? Forget long flowing costumes and go for the sexy short witch costume, get those legs out for a run we say! At Heaven Costumes you will find a huge, massively awesome range of adult Halloween costumes to choose from, making it easy to find a fancy dress costume which complements your body, leaving you to feel confident and sexy in a scary horror, nightmare evil kind of way!

3. Select the correct size

Another big factor to consider when choosing a women's or men's Halloween fancy dress costume is making sure you get the size right! There's a good chance that Halloween costumes which are too tight will leave you uncomfortable for the whole night, and nobody wants that!  A 'too-loose' Halloween costume will lose a lot of style and yes - also sex appeal - if it is worn like a hessian sack! At Heaven Costumes you will find detailed, individualised size charts for each specific Halloween costume which include standard Australian sizes and measurements. So check them out! Using these measurement charts is the most accurate way to make sure you are getting the best fit out of your Halloween costumes.
