Classic Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is just around the dark, scary corner and if you don't have a costume idea yet, you'd better get on it quick! Kidzworld has a few ideas on what to wear on the 31st of October, when you're trick-or-treatin' up a storm along with the 40+ million others. If you're not interested in following the trends this Halloween, check out these classic costume ideas - they're guaranteed to scare a few souls!

Vampire

Count Dracula is a classic Halloween costume that's kept its popularity over the years because hey, who doesn't want to wear fangs? To pull off this look, get a black cape, black clothes, white face make-up and a little dark eyeliner. Throw in some fake blood and those classic, plastic fangs and you'll be in high vampire style. If you're looking for an update of this Halloween costume, try vamping up like Mona the Vampire from the cool UK cartoon!

Ghost

All you need is a white sheet. It's the simplest, most cost-efficient homemade Halloween costume on the block. Yeah, it's boring and people will be more scared of a puppy than you, but sometimes retro is in. And if you're lucky, you could find a creepy mask to go with your sheet. If not, don't forget to cut eyeholes out of your sheet.

Witch

Wiccans are the most classic costumes. You can totally customize the look and be a scary witch, a warty witch, or a good witch. The typical ghoulish witch carries a broom and wears a long, black robe and pointy hat with a large brim. Apply green face paint and a rubber nose with a big wart, or snag yourself a witch mask from a costume store. You may also want to use a portable plastic cauldron to collect your loot in.

A good witch is also easy to do. Think Wizard of Oz - Glenda, the Good Witch looked kind of like a fairy. Lots of white clothing, a little glitter make-up and a pretty wand (maybe even a tiara) will have your outfit looking perfect.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

 Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
