Who Will You Be This Halloween?
Have you started planning your Halloween costumes yet? When one dresses up for the occasion year after year, it becomes difficult to think of something new and creative that’s also easy to execute. Other people have no problem coming up with a concept but lack funds or skills needed for transforming it into an appropriate outfit. If you’re struggling to find an idea which fits your personality, interests and budget available, see if you can get inspired by these videos.
Halloween Couples’ Costumes
Couples usually want to show up in costumes that appear to be part of the same story and you’ll see a number of great ideas inspired by horror and sci-fi movies, cartoons, comics, toys, celebrity couples, artists, animals, social networks and even food. How about going as a pair of boobs? Don’t worry if your budget doesn’t allow purchase of expensive items and materials or advanced sawing skills; some of these costumes require nothing other than makeup or a piece of cardboard and a pen! Check them out here.
Family Halloween Costumes
Things get even trickier when you have to plan for more than two people and those of different ages. The concept may have to fit babies that are yet to start walking as well as veterans struggling to do so. It’s doable, though, as these fun examples will show. You can still source inspiration from popular movies and cartoons, fairytales, toys and games, food, sports and activities such as a visit to the hairdresser’s, diving and safari holidays. Don’t despair if your chosen theme doesn’t feature enough characters to include your entire family; dressing everybody up in the same superhero outfit also works!
Last Minute DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids
Didn’t start planning in time and now it’s too late to do anything about it? It’s never too late, especially if you’ve got kids. Don’t let them miss out on an opportunity to have fun along with their friends, with or without trick-or-treating; check out costumes you can put together in next to no time. Some may require mum and/or dad to do a bit of arts & crafts but quite a few can be created with stuff you already have at home. What’s even better, your kids can end up wearing unique outfits that will make them feel special.
Halloween Costumes for Babies
If you’re ready to deal with their criticism once they’re old enough to speak up, dress your little ones in funny outfits and prepare to hear a lot of oohs and aahs. Get inspired by the top 10 cutest baby Halloween costumes which you can create yourself or buy in store and don’t forget to take loads of photos and videos the family can enjoy for years to come. Here are a few more super-cute ideas to consider.
Halloween Costumes for Pets
Pets are often thought of as family members so why should they be left out of Halloween festivities? There are fun ways to include your cat, dog, turtle, hamster or horse into family celebrations. Don’t cross the line, though; you could cause them grief and potentially prompt your neighbors to call the animal protection service. If your pet isn’t happy about the costume you’ve chosen for them to wear, try another. If they clearly demonstrate they’re not interested, give them a rest and acknowledge they are awesome enough wearing their everyday outfits.
Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes
Wonder what celebs wear on Halloween? We have yet to see how creative they’ll be this year but can admire (or criticize) costumes they chose to present the previous one.
