Everything For Halloween
Video Of Some Costumes
With Halloween coming up, are you getting stuck for ideas of choosing costumes for a party or event? No fear, there are plenty of ways to come up with creative ideas for costume while keeping within a budget.
Halloween costumes can range from cheap to very expensive, so it's important to have an idea of what you'd like to spend. When choosing, always check to see what's included in the costume, because some costumes will be much cheaper than others when add-ons are accounted for. A costume containing, for example, a shirt, pants, hat, wig, and the belt will be a good deal if you get the cheaper price for a single piece.
On the other hand, a single dress or costume item could cost the same amount, so you would need to balance up whether or not it's worth it to you and fits within your budget. Keep this in mind when creating your Halloween Look!
What To Wear? Is normally the first step.
Choose a Halloween style, think about what you wear on a daily basis that makes you feel comfortable for the most. This is the easiest way to help you to think of costume right away.
What are your interests? What do you like to do? Make a list of the things you enjoy to do like sport, cosplay, cooking, playing games, dressing up, reading, etc. this can give you ideas.
if you like baseball, why shouldn’t you be a famous baseball player; if you're a fan of a TV show, dress up as one of the characters you like for the most; if you like animals or food, dress up as your favorite pet or dessert, fruits or anything you like.
Make a list of options to the items you have available or can get easy. Then be creative and consider what you will be while in costume. If you’re going on a hayride it’s not a very good idea to wear a costume that your legs would be exposed.
Are you Sexy? Scary? Cute? Or Evil? Your Halloween costume is a great way to let people see a side behind of yourself that you don't usually get a chance to share such as something really fun, wacky or scary.
Always think of the colors you normally wear. If you always wear black, you probably wouldn't want to be a pink princess.
THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN
Halloween is not exactly a typical holiday. Other holidays, like Christmas and Hanukah, celebrate an event. Halloween celebrates a lot of things, including the lives of people who aren't with us anymore. Not everyone celebrates Halloween, but even still, it has a very interesting history.
Halloween is the season for little ghosts and goblins to take to the streets, asking for candy and scaring one another silly. Spooky stories are told around fires, scary movies appear in theaters and pumpkins are carved into jack-o'-lanterns.
Why do people dress up as ghosts, goblins, vampires, and other scary creatures? Different historians have different ideas about this. Some of these experts say that many years ago people believed that if they appeared scary, they would scare away the spirits of the dead who were roaming the earth on All Hallows' Eve. They say that people also carried food to the edge of town and left it there, hoping the spirits would eat that food and not come raid the village.
The history of Halloween is not entirely a clear one. Here's how many people think it all started.
Many hundreds of years ago, a people called the Celts lived in Europe believed that the souls of the dead visited Earth on the last day of October. They had a festival in honor of these souls of the dead, and they called it Samhain. (pronounced "sah-win")
In time, the Roman Empire conquered the Celts and took over their people, their land, and some of their beliefs as well. This included Samhain. The Romans combined it with their own festivals. And since the Roman Empire spread across a great part of the known world, the idea that the souls of the dead visited Earth on the last day of October spread far and wide.
Many ideas from the Roman days still survive in the United States and in other Western countries. Halloween is one of them. But how did we get the name Halloween?
In the 8th Century, the Catholic Church declared November 1 to be All Saints' Day. The church calendar had a number of days honoring saints already. November 1 was picked to be the day to honor all saints who didn't already have a day named in their honor.
The mass that the Catholic Church celebrated on November 1 was called Allhallowmas. This meant "mass of all the hallowed [saintly people.]" It was commonly called "All Hallows' Day." Somewhere along the line, the night before became known as Allhallowe'en, which was short for "evening before All Hallows' Day” or “All Hallows Eve”. It was then shortened to what we now call it, Halloween.
Some historians believe the tradition of dressing in costumes and trick-or-treating is based on a tradition in which people would disguise themselves and go door-to-door, asking for food in exchange for prayers for the dead. Early costumes were usually disguises, often woven out of straw to hide who the person really was. Trick-or-treating didn't start in the United States until World War II, but American kids were known to go out on Thanksgiving and ask for food — a practice known as Thanksgiving begging.
Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on October 31, and Halloween 2019 occurs on Thursday, October 31. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.
