July 12, 2009
Choosing a Halloween costume can be one of the most important choices of the year. Maybe you’re dressing up to scare the kids trick or treating and you want them to remember the most fun house on the block. Or maybe you’re looking for first prize in the costume contest at the local VFW. Whatever your reason for looking for that perfect costume, you’ll need some costume ideas. Of course there are a million and one adult Halloween costume ideas so let’s just go over a few in a couple of different categories.
Halloween is supposed to be scary right? It’s funny, so few Halloween costumes are scary anymore. I guess people tend to prefer laughter to screaming so we are drawn to funny Halloween costumes. A few funny adult Halloween costume ideas would be, Special Ed from the Crank Yankers television series, Ron Burgundy from the movie Anchor Man, or maybe a pregnant nun, offensive but funny.
Sexy costumes are also very popular among adults. I guess some people prefer to dress down instead of up for Halloween. That just gives us plenty more adult Halloween costume ideas. Some pigtails and a plaid skirt are sure to please if you want to dress up as Brittany Spears for Halloween, certainly a sexy idea. Or for the guys, grab some Gladiator garb and get all the ladies attention in your Russell Crowe costume. Maybe you could be the perfect couple of the 90s and carry along your video camera while you’re dressed up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, funny and sexy all in one.
Halloween Costume Ideas For Women
There are many choices for Halloween costumes for women. You could dress as a famous person. If you are going out for Halloween with another person you could have lots of fun planning your costumes together.
You could choose a costume that represents someone from a book or movie. Maybe you have a favorite character that you would enjoy dressing up as. Think of Scarlet O’Hara or Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. One of those spunky women from the musical Chicago would be very exciting!
If you are a sports enthusiast or enjoy dancing or cooking it will be easy to come up with a costume from items you already have. Choose a sports jersey, square dancing skirt or apron; add a few accessories and you’re ready to go.
You may want to dress as something that is really out of character for you. You could be a spy, farmer, or secretary. Maybe you want to choose a costume that no one would ever think you would wear. How about being Big Bird, an artist or a belly dancer?
Why dress as a woman? Halloween is the time to dress up any way you choose. You could wear a costume that looks like a wrestler, one of the Blues Brothers or Liberace.
