Halloween is the time of the year when there's a cold nip in the air, Jack O' Lanterns start popping up everywhere, and the veil between the living and the dead is everywhere...
In recent years, Halloween costumes, in particular for adults, have become more and more outrageous as individuals go for maximum shock value. Costume shops are adding increasing complicated items to their already bizarre line of get-ups. In addition, homemade costumes are becoming more complex as everyone strives to add a personal touch to their costumes If your still not sure what to wear this Hallowen I've include some popular adult costume ideas below: Hunchback Of Norte Dame - This scary figure adorns a hooded coat with short sleeves. Get an old coat and fashion out a hood. The hood can overflow to the front and back as a poncho. A waist belt will do so get a long overcoat and a belt. The ends of the coat and the ends of the sleeves can be cut out in a zigzag design where the limbs come out. Black pants and long boots will complete the hunchback look.
Monster - If you are not a great fan of these monsters and scary creatures, you can get inspiration from the movies and TV shows. People love movie monsters and there is a great chance that they will like your Halloween costume based on them. One of the most popular ones among them is Jason from Friday the 13th. You will need hockey mask, dark pants, shirt, some fake blood stains and fake machete (a big fake knife will do it too).
You can also dress as Michael Myers and as you know this mask won't require much time and effort to prepare. A costume that will need more time is Lord Vader. Star Wars movie will get a sequel soon which means that this costume will be quite popular again.
Mime CostumeCreepy and intriguing at the same time, mimes have been entertaining people with their unique strangeness for decades. A mime costume is an interesting twist for the adult party-goer, if done right. Females can go for looks as well as scares with form fitting black and white dresses, and cleverly done makeup. Males too can turn a somewhat grim idea into an attractive one with the right clothing and face paint. A good thought is to purchase a mime outfit from a costume shop and give it a few personal touches according to the wearer's preference.
The Roaring 20sRecent remakes of films such as The Great Gatsby have repeatedly brought the exciting lifestyle of the flapper era back to the forefront of our imaginations. The flapper girl, complete with her embellished headbands, glossy locks, and eye-catching shimmery dresses is a perfect costume idea for the female who wishes to attain a more feminine and fun-loving look on Halloween. Males too can join in on the festivities by donning suits and hairstyles typical of the 1920's, and who knows - perhaps a romance as passionate as Gatsby and Daisy's (Great Gatsby) might find their counterpart on a chilly Halloween night.
Witch / WarlockAn absolute classic, the witch or warlock costume has been done and reinvented countless times, whether it has been on stage, television, or in real life. There are numerous inspirations to choose from, whether you are a fan of the Harry Potter series or American Horror Story. Women can choose to create a frightening or appealing (or both) costume with this idea, which can be altered as easily as adding a belt here, or a pleat there. Men can add an interesting touch to a warlock costume by incorporating elements of modern culture, such as the "hipster" beard, in their looks.
