Halloween Costumes For All | 12 Fun Facts On Halloween
Welcome to Halloween Costumes Hub site.
Voila! Halloween is at our doorsteps, bringing with it an intense enthusiasm to celebrate it in many ways, as it is a holiday that people of all ages can enjoy.
But, before getting into the fun benefits, let’s first get a hang on how and where to buy our costumes, an integral part of the celebrations.
And here’s how:
For starters, when shopping for Halloween costumes, make sure the costume fits the person for whom it is bought.
Also, be aware that the ideal place to shop for your new costumes is online stores. While there are many sellers to choose from, you would want to buy from a store which has been in this business for long and which has a good reputation and has a great array of stock. The main advantage of purchasing costumes online is, of course, the price and wide range of selection.
And speaking of the selection range, the gallery below could be an indication:

- Know the Right Size that you need.
An ill fitting costume can deprive you of all the fun and celebrations.
A reason why the sizing videos have been provided at the top of this post. Please take time to watch ’em
Because there is nothing more frustrating than finding a costume of your choice and then once you try it after it is delivered, to realize that it does not fit properly. So it makes sense that you have all the information that you require, to ensure a proper fit, before you start shopping for your perfect costume.
Some people still opt to buy the next higher size in certain styles of costumes so as to be able to wear layers underneath, in case the weather is cold. Do remember that trick-or-treating and Halloween parties are celebrated for hours together and so any costume that does not fit well can greatly discomfiture the wearer.
- Shorten things that are too long
Fitting costumes for kids, and even smaller adults, can be challenging if a costume is designed to fit “most” people in that size range. Skirts, slacks, and long capes and robes can present a tripping hazard when you are out at the party or running from house to house while trick-or-treating. Long sleeves can catch on items and tear, or accidentally fall into candle flames and catch fire. Always wear these costumes with care, and if it is a child’s costume consider hemming or pinning the costume to avoid accidents.
Okay, with all that said, the 5 videos above should help in determining the size of the costume required for various age groups for both sexes, which would help you to start planning for your costumes without delay, so that you can enjoy your Halloween without worrying about your costume details at the last minute.

And now that we are done with the costume part, lets dig into some fun facts:
For most folks, Halloween is a time for fun, costumes and candy. For others, it is a way to honour the relatives that have passed away or greet the onset of fall and winter. But whatever your own views, there are some benefits that celebrating this holiday can offer you.
And here is a look at a dozen of ‘em, if you may:
1. It’s fun time.
Halloween is fun all around. People just love dressing up and decorating the house. It helps people of all ages reduce the amount of stress, anxiety, depression and brings balance to their lives
2. Bye-bye, dress codes.
For the major part of your life, someone has dictated what you wear. Whether it was your parents or a dress code imposed on you by the schools or workplace. Halloween is the one day in the year when you’re free to wear the wildest and weirdest of costumes. However, it can be quite therapeutic to express that side of you once in a while, and Halloween is a great way to do it. For instance, if you normally dress in dark coloured, conservative clothes, a bright and flashy costume can be a lot of fun.
3. A pretext to celebrate and socialize.
Doesn’t everyone love a party? Hell Ya!
But a word of caution.
While Costume parties would be a delightful way to get all your friends together, dress up in zany costumes, eat delectable food and dance all night, they can also end sourly, both for the hosts and for the guests. So, here are,
4. A few things to keep in mind.
For party hosts, ensure that you have laid out ample and appropriate food and drinks for your guests. It helps to be aware of any allergies or dietary restrictions and take extra steps so that everyone can have something cool and festive to chomp away or sip.
Also take care to put your household pets in a separate room, away from the celebrations and noise of your costume party. Removing all fragile or personally cherished items and storing them safely is also advisable as a Halloween costume party can soon evolve into a high-spirited dance party, and you wouldn’t want any of your paraphernalia to be stepped on or knocked over.
As for party guests, they would do well to remember that they are a guest in someone else’s home and so be respectful so as not to damage any of the host’s belongings. Also, be aware of how much food and drinks you consume and keep ‘em within limits. No one wants to be remembered as the Wicked Witch that danced the fox trot on the dining table at the neighbourhood costume party!
5. Avoid being conscious about self.
If you are normally shy by nature person who stands in the corner at parties, then a Halloween party is just the right time where you can actually be yourself and become a social butterfly. Hiding behind a mask and costume can give you more self confidence to go out and meet people.
6. On receiving (Trick-or-treating , for and by children) and giving gifts:
Children just love receiving gifts while trick-or-treating. Plus, it can be a moment for parents to advise their kids to be polite, speak clearly, and acknowledge items received with thanks.
Likewise, children can also learn about giving graciously. Whether it is helping to hand out treats or donating their outgrown costumes to the needy, it can be a great teaching moment.
7. Family moments.
Halloween is not just for the kids. It offers plenty of moments of fun for the entire family. Whether it is lighting bonfires, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, cooking up treats, planning your own costume party, or attending Costume parties hosted by others by getting glammed up with the choicest of costumes etc, families benefit from spending enjoyable times together.
8. Just catch the spirit..
Even if you are personally not inclined to dress up for Halloween, it would be worth watching what others do, and quite possibly some of their costumes would inspire you to dress up yourself next year.
9. Meet your neighbours.
With everyone’s busy schedules and the apprehension of parents in sending children out alone, you may not get the chance to meet those who live in the same street as yours. Trick-or-treating allows you to walk right up, knock, and say hello to all those without anyone thinking twice about it.
10. Halloween for Children
Halloween is the holiday that most children thoroughly enjoy. But costumes for them are always an issue but it is better they are allowed to have some say in getting costumes of their choice.
Also, do ensure that you have explained to your children to celebrate Halloween safely before the big night. This way they won’t be overly excited. Also, try out their costumes prior to the Halloween day to ensure their movements and vision are not hampered. In short, the costume should be comfortable to walk in for long hours, provide the required warmth, and be safe to wear.
General trick-or treating advice:
Children should use sidewalks and cross roads safely if they must, which they should do only at the crosswalks. It is also a good idea to give each child a glow stick or flashlight or so they can be easily noticed. Also, tell ‘em to stay clear of dimly-lit streets and parks, always move in groups and not to enter any strange house or car.
Decorating for Halloween can be almost as fun as going out and begging for candy any day of the week. The one cool thing is you can let fly your imagination when it comes to decorating for Halloween. For instance, you can display some very scary home decorations for this delightful holiday or take on a kinder, gentler, more kid friendly style of decorating. Either decision is yours and yours alone and should carefully monitor the scare-ability of your own children when deciding. You certainly don’t want them afraid to come home.
For adult gatherings all bets are off when it comes to home decorating for Halloween. There are all kinds of themes that can be followed from the incredibly zany and outrageous to the frightening or flamboyant. The biggest suggestion in these matters is to have fun at all times and bring the be the life of the party rather than having the decorations upstage your efforts. Far too many people spend more time concerned with how they will decorate their homes rather than wondering how they will decorate themselves for the festivities. If you find the perfect costumes all eyes will be on you and not your decorations.
12. Don’t forget accessories
Some accessories can also be dangerous if they do not fit properly. Make sure that masks do not slip down into your face and watch for any dangling accessories that could become tripping hazards.
Just ask yourself, don’t you deserve a great Halloween?
