Halloween Ideas


Halloween has always held a special place in my heart. It is a time when people are more inclined to be silly and have fun and a time to dress up and have fun with your friends. I remember as a kid being so excited for the candy and always making out like bandits with pillowcases full of candy. As a kid I somehow managed to contract some kind of sickness just in time to ruin my trick-or-treating. This happed a few years when I was younger and it always majorly bummed me out. I had to sit at home in my room sadly staring at my costume that was never to be worn to trick-or-treat and beg my parents for candy. My costumes as a child were pretty cliche, involving many a Disney character. I was Pocahontas, snow white, little red riding hood, dorothy, etc… One day I will have to find all of these photos and relive my childhood Halloween glory.

Thankfully those days are behind me and I know how to keep the fall flu away as an adult and dress up as something fun to go out with my friends. I have never been the girl who dresses provocatively which translates to my Halloween costumes as well. In college, if we dressed up for Halloween, our costumes tended towards humor rather than scantily clad. One year we went as characters from Joe Dirt. The next year we went as the different phases of Britney Spears which was probably one of my favorites (I was pink haired Britney).

Nowadays, I tend to be the one who can never think of costume ideas in time for Halloween. I started writing down costumes that I would think of during the year that I would love to wear so when Halloween came around, I would have some sort of idea to work with. Here are some costume ideas that I will hopefully someday make happen.

Mary Poppins – Mary Poppins is my favorite Disney movie. Her costume would be relatively simple and this is one of my all time wished for costumes.
Peter Pan – This costume would be so simple and cute. All it would really take would be green tights and a long green shirt cut to look like the outfit in the movie. Plus a red feather in a green hat.

Wednesday Addams – I loved the Addams family movies when I was a kid and Wednesday speaks to my dark side. This costume would also be simple to recreate and it might make an appearance sooner rather than later.

Do you go all out for Halloween costumes or do you keep it simple when it comes to dressing up? Tell me your Halloween costume ideas below!
