Preparing for Halloween is fun for everyone that wants to make a costume and take part in all the festivities. When people have fun during Halloween, they share the common bonds of imagination and creativity. Costumes are the number one way that they can express their own personalities.
Wearing a costume on Halloween is something that many people like to do. They enjoy dressing up themselves and if they have children, they love to dress them up to. Kids and adults love Halloween for all the opportunities it presents to them. As it gets closer to the time of Halloween, some people may be at a loss for costume ideas. There is no time like the present to begin to figure out just what they want to be.
It is always a good idea to have two costume ideas for any occasion. If something goes wrong with the one costume, you will have the other to fall back on. I like to have two costumes for Halloween every year. One I like to wear when the kids come around for their treats. The other costume I like to wear when I go out to a club or party for the celebration.
This year I plan to be Rupunzel for handing out the candies for the kids, and then for my adult outings, I am going to be a mermaid! I am making both costumes myself with things that I have around the house. So far, my mermaid costume is almost completed, and you can see a picture of it right here. The Rupunzel costume is a fourth of the way done. The Rupunzel costume will take longer for me to put together. There will sewing involved in the process of making the Rupunzel costume I haven’t spent a dime on either one of them because I am using items that I already have.
For those that want to make a unique costume or costumes this year, remember to look through your closets, drawers and old craft items. Your jewelry box is also a great place to find items to use for a costume. You can sew or glue jewelry onto fabric. Stacks of material that you may have gathered over the year also allow great creativity when creating costumes.
I am looking forward to wearing my Rupunzel costume on the night of Halloween, and my mermaid costume for a great night out. Remember to always take pictures of your costumes for your memories.
