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!

The Joker

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!).

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
