HALLOWEEN COSTUMES - BUYING GUIDE


One of the things that makes this holiday so great is that you can dress up as any fantasy you want and have your persona excepted. Over the past few years, Halloween has become an enormous draw to adults and their Halloween festivities. Popular Halloween costume classics vampires, ghosts and other scary characters. But Halloween night is also a very sexy holiday. Costumes portraying enchanting Witches and seductive Vampires are always a great choice, and let us not forget the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira.

Its also a perfect time for couples to dress up together as anything they want to be from a Mad Scientist and Nurse to a Playboy and his Bunny, the possibilities seem endless! And why not, Halloween is the one time of the year that almost anything goes, allowing people to live out fantasies, if only for this one night.

A costume is a costume...not! The quality of Halloween costumes varies greatly. Needless to say, the price is usually a good indicator as to the quality of a costume, but not always. Since Halloween comes only once a year, you want your costume to look great, and its worth spending a little more to really stand out in a crowd.

Many online costume stores offer a large selection of unusual costumes that can't be found in department stores, or even Halloween costume shops. Plus, shopping online allows you to shop well in advance of Halloween, avoiding the last-minute crowds and empty shelves, all without leaving your home.

Order your Halloween costumes well in advance of October 31st. This gives you time to make sure that it fills your needs, and gives you time to accessorize. Many online retailers do not actually stock the products they sell. They will pass the order to a distributor and the product(s) will be dropped shipped to you. The problem is that since they don't actually stock their own products it often takes longer for you to receive your order, or they might be out of stock. We suggest that you only order from reliable online retailers.

You may want to use your favorite costume over, year after year. This will require some care in storing your costume and possibly some repair. Make sure, before you put it away until next year, that it is free of make-up stains or rips or tears. Launder it according to manufacturers instructions and repair any damage to it. Invest in a garment bag to store it in and it will be ready for next years use when you want it.
