There is no denial that Halloween costume accessories are as important as Halloween costumes, to look perfect. We can't overlook Halloween accessories.
Although, picking the matching accessories is an effortful task as we need to consider every small detail such as theme, color, size, material, cost, etc.
Fortunately, we don't want you to get stuck. Therefore, we have compiled the list of How to choose the best Halloween costumes
and How to choose perfect Halloween costume accessories, for you lovely people.
How to choose the best Halloween costumes
1) Pick your look
The first step in the process is deciding your look. Halloween gives us an opportunity to alter ego. Think about the other side of yours that you always keep covered from the people. Or think about the characters that you are really inspired by and always wanted to play, given a chance.
It could be sexy, wacky, scary, funny, cheeky, cute, angry, perky, or whatever. But also keep in mind your previous years' looks. Don't repeat them.
Once you finalize the look, decide the costume color. The design & color go hand-in-hand. For example, you can't wear black for a fairy look; except, you wanted to be a dark fairy! Similarly, you can't wear pink or blue for a Goth, Vampire, or a skeleton look.
However, don't be afraid to experiment, as it's Halloween time and anything goes!
2) Decide your Budget
Halloween costumes can be available in all ranges- from cheap like borscht to expensive like gold. So it is good to have an idea about how much you'd like to spend on.
For example, if you have a sibling who would wear your costumes next year or in the future, in that case, you can spend a little extra money on Halloween costumes. Otherwise, don't spend too much.
Check out for Halloween sales. Most of the stores have exclusive sales during this period. Here you can get very decent Halloween costumes at cheap prices.
However, you have to be prepared to spend at least $20-$40 because most of the decent Halloween costumes are available within this price range.
3) Plan in advance
Don't run at the eleventh hour. Plan in advance whether you are going to DIY Halloween costumes or purchase it. In case you prefer DIY, then you must start preparing a month in advance. Because you will need time for finalizing the idea, for material shopping, for designing, and for tests & trials.
Last-minute runs will cost you in every way - you will have to pay extra bucks as well as you won't get what you wanted. So it's always better to be ahead in the game.
4) Consider other factors:
You also need to consider other factors like weather, Right size, Party venue, etc.
Weather: Be prepared for every sort of weather, be it rain, hailstorm, or bright sunshine. Check out the weather forecast for Halloween night in advance.
Venue: If your Halloween party is going to be indoor, then you need not worry much about the weather. But if it's outdoor, then you need to consider these factors. Also, find the distance between your home and party location in advance.
Above all, safety first! Make sure that you can move adequately. If your costume is long enough to trip on, then, hem, or trim the bottom edge. Choose sensible & comfortable soles.
