About Costumes

You can ask any child, and they will say that costumes can be worn year round. What’s more fun than going to the supermarket wearing a princess costume? Not much, that’s for sure. However, most of us only walk around in costume when it’s Halloween. Halloween is the one day a year when we can be anything we want, whether it’s a superhero, a witch, a monster, or a pirate. Anyone can wear a costume, and nobody is ever too old to enjoy dressing up in costume, whether it’s for a dress up party, a holiday, or any occasion that calls for a bit of fun in the form of a costume. Costumes are so beloved, that there are even entire stores devoted to the art of dressing up, but if you want to wear a costume that doesn’t cost a lot, you can always poke around in your closet and come up with something creative, original, and fun that doesn’t cost a dime. Much of the fun of wearing a costume comes from the accessories, and you can don a crazy wig, goofy glasses, vampire fangs, or a superhero cape as an addition to your costume. Costumes that are popular range from year to year based on what movies have come out, what television shows are popular, and what pop culture icons are considered trendy, but the classic, traditional costumes such as a ghost, vampire, skeleton, or fairy will never go out of style. Even grownups can get year-round mileage out of their costumes, if they don’t mind running errands while wearing cat ears.
