Buying a New Costume
New Halloween costume shopping is a fun experience, and the best place to find good Halloween costumes and ideas is on the web. There are many retailers to choose from, and you want to buy from a Halloween costume store that has a good reputation and a large number of choices. So the greatest advantages of buying your Halloween costume online is the prices as well as the selection.
Local stores and novelty shops a mostly just a secondary place to pick up Halloween costumes. The bad thing is that they do not have near the selection, competitive prices, and not many good Halloween costume ideas.
Buying a Used Costume
A used costume can save a lot of money, and if you are strapped for cash might be the way to go. If you develop a costume idea, and make a list of the items you need to complete your ensemble, you can probably find the pieces to create an entire costume with little effort. Good places to find used costumes are:
* Thrift Store
* Flea Market
* Garage Sales
* Friends or Relatives
* Newspaper Ads
* Online Auction Sites
Make sure to inspect the quality of the costume, and if you are buying it from the Internet or an online auction, get as many detailed photos as possible, and try and get a money back guarantee. Used costumes are a great idea since you may only be wearing the costume one time.
Renting a Costume
Costume rentals is another option you have when preparing for Halloween. At the same place where you can buy a new costume locally, it is possible that they offer rentals.
Many times you have to put down a deposit, and the charge for renting the costume depends on how long you intend to have it, and what time of season. During the Halloween season, for example, you can expect to pay more for a costume than any other time of the year.
With the cheap prices of costumes on the Internet, we recommend that you just buy one. You can always resell it later if you never use it again, or pass it on to friends and relatives. Renting a Halloween costume is an option though, and we wanted to make you aware of it.
Making Your Own Costume
If your a hobbyist, or good at arts and crafts, you may enjoy the satisfaction of creating your very own Halloween costume from scratch. All it takes is some imagination, and a little bit of work to produce an original costume.
You may already have a costume in mind, but if not, here are some tips when making your own costume:
* Develop an idea for the Halloween costume first, and then look around your house to see if you may have everything you need to make it
* Make a list of materials that you need that have to be bought for the costume. This will save money by sticking to a budget and plan
* When making kids Halloween costumes, make sure that they are safe for their age group, and make them visible at night
* Try and be original, the whole point of making your own costume is to stand out and be different
Halloween is just a few weeks away, and then after that it will be Christmas but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s tackle everything one at a time. Halloween itself will require a whole lot of your time especially if you’re a parent. Expect to be handling the costume designs and worries of your kids for their school play and party or for their trick-or-treating on the 31st. And with all those things in mind, you will always have to shoulder the burden of costs. How to come up with Halloween costumes while working on a budget.
It is true that your life would be easier if you say buy a Halloween costume from the store or rent one from a costume shop. But if you have four kids and all of them wants a costume that can be quite a burden for your wallet.
Also, if you’re going to rent or buy one, you will have to tackle the stress of your kids fighting over which one would be the fairy or which one would be Spiderman. While your kids argue you go down memory lane and reminisce of the time you were a kid. There’s no quarrel over costumes because in the first place you have to make your own.
This, of course, lights up a series of light bulbs in your head. Why not have my kids make their own costumes. It’s economical, its fun to do, and you can show your kids the value of work. However, if you follow this path be prepared with some resistance especially if you have promised your kid a great costume last year or if you have spoiled them a little along the way.
In the end, it is your decision to make. Plus, homemade Halloween costumes are not always the crappy things that children always thought they would be. With extra effort and a lot of imagination, you can make your kid a Halloween costume better than the ones they sell at the mall.
To encourage your kid avoid the usual white bed sheet with holes for the arms, eyes, and mouth costume.
This is not a great idea, unless your kid wants that. But as someone who has been around, try to be more creative and spend time on your kid’s costume.
Try to remember that nowadays, its okay to have costumes of celebrities and superheroes. In fact your kid might be badgering you of a batman costume. That one can be tricky but with the right materials you can make one from a black cloth, ski mask, kid’s tights, and that pair of boots your kid has in your room.
Other costume ideas include a cat or kitten costume which involves leggings, sweatshirts, stockings or rope for the tail, and probably a paper at mask. A devil costume is also quite easy to make. Clothe your kid in all red or black and buy that head band horns which you can practically see everywhere during this time of the year. You can add a cape if you want and of course a forked staff. Just make sure your kid knows that the staff is for props only and not for poking his neighbor.
Materials you will need for your budget Halloween costumes are readily available in most shops or most of them you can even find in your own home. Again, you can create a great costume while working on a budget, all you need is time to spend and imagination to burn.
