Five Tips for Halloween Costumes
Finding that perfect Halloween costume can be tricky.
It's almost October 31st so you have probably been panicking this week about the 4 Halloween parties you are going to. Your picture will be taken at each so obviously you don't want to wear the same outfit. Here are five easy tips to help you find the perfect costume this year.
1. Multiple parties, multiple outfits.
If you are going to take pictures, more than likely you do not want to wear the same outfit. The best way to handle this situation is to look in your closet and see what you can come up with. You probably have something that you could make into a hippie or flapper girl costume. This way you won’t have to buy four different costumes.
2. Wear and recycle.
If you do buy something, make sure it is something you can re-wear or mix and match with another costume. When you dress as a character from a movie or TV show, it is pretty easy to find clothing that you can wear on a normal day.
3. “That Midwest weather though.”
If you live in the Midwest, you know how drastically the weather can change. One minute it’s 60 and sunny, the next minute it’s 40 and rainy. Make sure to consider what the weather might be like because no one wants to walk around in 6-inch heels in the pouring rain when it’s cold outside.
4. Make up does the trick.
Make up is one of the best ways to accentuate your Halloween look. If you are trying to be scary consider fake blood, red lips, pale white faces, and heavy black eye liner. Trying to look like your favorite celebrity? Do a Google image search and try to mimic their look with make up.
5. Accessories are a treat.
Swords, knives, and masks are great accessories for those creepy Halloween costumes. Jewelry and headpieces will accent a bridal, princess, or celebrity look.
You should expect to see a lot of Kate Middleton’s, Miley Cyrus', and Duck Dynasty costumes this year. On Halloween from 11-5 RaeLynn’s Boutique will offer 20 percent off all accessory purchases for last minute costume needs.
Halloween is the perfect time to pick your favorite celebrity, a scary movie character, or find your alter ego and dress up like that person. So take advantage of this sometimes creepy, but freakishly fun day.
