It is the time of year again when adults can let down their hair a bit and play dress up. If you are going to a Halloween party this year, you still have time to look for a great costume. Some of the best costumes are made even better with accessories such as wigs or swords. If the costume store is out of the accessories you need to complete the costume, you can visit an online costume shop to have them quickly shipped to your home. Here are a few of the most popular costumes and their accessories:
Pirate costumes have been popular for many years, and their popularity increased after the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. You can customize these costumes in many ways to make them fit your own style. Pirate accessories include the pirate hat and a sword. You can substitute a bandana for the hat, and a dagger for the sword, but without any accessories, the costume may seem a bit plain.
Doctor or Nurse
A doctor or nurse costume is versatile. You can make the costume look professional, sexy or scary, depending on your mood. No matter which you choose, you should add a stethoscope to complete the look. A large syringe also adds a fun touch.
The grim reaper is a standard, spooky ghoul that is popular with many. The reaper’s scythe is usually sold separately, but is a must-have to achieve the full creepy effect of this costume.
Psychopathic killers have graced movie screens and Halloween parties for a long time. Depending on the type of killer you choose to be, you will need a mask, plus a fake knife or other weapon, and fake blood. Most online costume suppliers also carry fake blood, in addition to other props, in case your local store runs out.
Many little girls, and a few grown women, make their dream to be a princess come true on Halloween. These costumes tend to be sparkly and elaborate but are not complete without two important accessories – a tiara and a magic princess wand.
A wicked witch costume is an old standby, and like pirate costumes, they can be customized to fit a person’s style. Some witches can be classically ugly, and others choose to be sexy. Either kind of witch needs a broom for transportation and a witch’s hat. The hat does not have to be the standard solid black hat. Many costume companies sell witch’s hats in other colors and even with colored stripes or feathers.
