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. 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.

They're great friends and I'm just... stupid. I'm sorry dear but things do get better and its not your fault. Everyone messes up, its just a part a life. If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.
