Halloween Costume Ideas
Halloween is right around the dark and scary corner! If you're stumped on what to dress up as this year, then check out Kidzworld's list of cool and creepy Halloween costumes!
One of the creepiest Halloween costume is definitely the Joker from The Dark Knight. You're going to need a purple suit and tie, as well as a green vest, so head to your local thrift store for some cheap finds. Now comes the fun part - messily apply white paint to your face, smear red lipstick over and around your lips, extending it halfway up your cheeks, and gel down your hair so that it's greasy. Remember, the Joker is a really bad dude, so don't be too friendly to anyone you run into. And if you're going to smile, make sure it's a totally evil grin! If you'd rather be the good guy, then dress up as Batman by tying a black cape around your neck. On second thought, that could look a little lame, so go pick up a real Batman costume at the mall.
The Cast of Gossip Girl
Those of you who want a costume that's more trendy and less scary can dress up as Serena, Blair, Chuck, or one of the other Upper East Siders! You can even go as the whole cast of Gossip Girl if you have a big group of friends. Those of you who go to private school won't have a problem finding something to wear, but if you don't already have a school uniform, then all you'll need is a blazer, white shirt and either a plaid miniskirt or a pair of pants. However, you're going to have to go all out on the accessories. Think headbands with pretty bows, scarves, colorful socks or tights, ties, cufflinks, suspenders, and of course, a pair of killer shoes!

The Next President of the United States
Maybe you're too young to vote, but you can still show your support for theUS presidential election by dressing up as the candidate of your choice! In 2008, an easy way to dress up as Barack Obama or John McCain was to wear either a black suit or a presidential election tee such as "Barack the Vote" or "I'm a McCainiac" and then throw on a black or white wig. Or, you could have makd like Tina Fey and dressed up as Sarah Palin, (don't forget to carry a hockey stick to help represent all those hockey moms out there!).
