Halloween Costumes And Wigs

What is it about Halloween that makes October 31 so popular? Perhaps it's the mystery, or just the candy? Perhaps the excitement of a new costume? Whatever the draw, Halloween is here to stay.

The word Halloween literally means the evening before All Hallows Day or All Saint’s Day, celebrated on November 1. Halloween is also the shortened name of Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Evening and All Saint’s Eve which is celebrated on October 31. The origin and meaning of Halloween is derived from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, but more recently we think of Halloween as a night filled with candy, trick-or-treating, pumpkins, ghosts and death.

Another tradition is the  belief that during the night of November 1, demons, witches, and evil spirits freely roamed the earth with joy to greet the arrival of "their season" - the long nights and early dark of the winter months. The demons had their fun with poor mortals that night, frightening, harming, and even playing all kinds of mean tricks on them. The only way, it seemed, for scared humans to escape the persecution of the demons was to offer them things they liked, especially fancy foods and sweets. Or, in order to escape the fury of these horrible creatures, a human could disguise himself as one of them and join in their roaming. In this way they would recognize the human as a demon or witch and the human would not be bothered that night.

On Halloween, kids and adults attend costume parties, make lanterns out of big pumpkins, visit haunted locations, tell scary stories to each other, play pranks and also watch horror movies. People light bonfires to ward off all evil spirits and ghosts.

Over time, Halloween has evolved into a community based, children friendly celebration. Activities like trick or treating, dressing up in various costumes and having Halloween theme based parties have now become the norm. Even adults become a participant in costume parties. Trick or Treat has become customary for kids. Children, dressed in costumes, go from one house to another asking the question ‘Trick or treat?’ The treats given to children can be various candies, things to eat or sometimes money. Tricks would include the children playing some kind of mischievous prank on the owners of the house. Tricks would be done if the owners do not give any form of treat to the children.

Are you looking for costume ideas to prep you for Halloweekend?  I am pretty sure you don't want a costume that makes you look like you have run into one (or ten!) of your twins at a party.  There are tons of awesome and creative ideas for Halloween costumes that you can look up from the internet.  Whether you are aiming to be scary, funny or a combination of both, you can get creative by making use of everyday items that you probably own already.  For example, you can DIY a simple and inexpensive skirt made out of newspapers, paired with a white top stained with blood (red paint) and Cosplay wigs for Halloween.
