Halloween is the perfect time to let the hair down and go wild with a good old dose of fancy dress. Unlike many other occasions, Halloween is one that lends itself to the idea of fancy dress perfectly and is therefore a time that you can really get into the spirit of things rather than feeling obliged to just on a friend’s whim.
The occasion also offers you a huge amount of scope for costume ideas, and the whole process of going out all dressed up can be a whole lot more fun in the process.But which costumes really are best for Halloween?One of the great things about Halloween costumes is that if you choose the right ones you will not only look fun and quirky, but there is a good chance that you will look great at the same time.
Making costumes yourself is one option, but trying to create a very sexy look on a budget from the limited tools you will have in the house can be hard work. On the other hand, many store bought costumes will be extremely effective and also help you look great in the process.The classics are still very much in vogue, with Ghostbusters, The Addams Family and the like always guaranteed to draw a smile.
However, it is also worth looking to more modern gruesome characters if you really want to make an impact. For instance, The Joker was a firm favourite a few years back when The Dark Knight hit the screens and Halloween costumes can be very much now if you choose the right character.
There are the old fallbacks such as zombies and witches which can be extremely sexy too, but are often done to death. Instead, try thinking outside the box and if you really want to cause a stir then pick something from the recent news and head out in a topical costume that is sure to get you noticed.
