31 Days of Halloween: Let’s Talk Costumes!

Hey ya’ll,

Today’s post is all about finding the perfect Halloween costume to wear to your party!

For me, every year is like a competition with myself to make sure that I have a fantastic costume. I never tell a soul about my idea before the big night. It’s always fun to arrive, incognito, and then surprise everyone with my head-to-toe transformation.

To get the ideas flowing, I like to walk around pop-up Halloween stores and browse costume websites. I try to figure how to make the ideas that I like better or more “me” or work with what I’m trying to accomplish as far as theme.

If you’re feeling really lost, go back to the basics! Think about broad costume categories, and then explore the possibilities within them:


Individual
Couple
Group
Family
Traditional
Animals
Inanimate Objects
Scary
Fictional/Cartoon/Comic
Occupational
Historical
Celebrity/TV/Film/Pop-Culture

Last Minute/Easy
Easy Idea: “Self Portrait”. Carry an empty frame, wear a t-shirt with your signature on it.

Once you have an idea in mind, here are a few sites to browse for complete costumes:

There are also plenty of sites that offer free D.I.Y. Halloween costume tutorials that will help you bring your ideas to life:

So… what are you thinking about being for Halloween?!? Let me know in the comment section below.

I can’t wait to hear about your ideas! Dreaming up the perfect costume is definitely my favorite part of planning an extraordinary Halloween experience!
