This page is to help you brainstorm as you decide your Halloween costume this year...
Halloween rocks! I mean what other time can we dress up to portray various fantasy roles with a legitimate reason (Halloween) and not have our neighbors think we're eccentric (okay, okay, so perhaps they'd think I'm eccentric anyway--I'm down with that...after all, who wants to be "average", right?). ;-)
Sometimes we want to play the role of someone we admire, such as the little girl who wants to be Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. Or, the little boy who wants to be the heroic Luke Skyywalker or an intimidating Stormtrooper (which was my favorite costume as a kid. Oh, man do I ever wish I had saved that original 1977 Star Wars Stormtrooper Laser Rifle that I had as part of my Stormtrooper costume!! :( But that's another story...)
In other cases, we want to play the role of something fearsome with the hopes that we can scare others with it. Naturally this leads some choosing to dress up as a vampire, demon, or other character that strikes fear in the hearts of men!
Whatever your age, there's no end to the great Halloween and theatrical costumes from which you can choose. Here's some cool Halloween costume ideas to help you start brainstorming on how you can make it your best Halloween ever!
Halloween Costumes for Kids
Of course, with the passing of Gene Wilder, costumes of Willy Wonka, Oompah Loompahs, and any of the other other characters are sure to be wildly popular this Halloween season.
