Halloween Costume Ideas

candle in jar Halloween Costume IdeasThe tradition of wearing Halloween costumes stems from long ago. Many centuries ago it was believed by people that the veil between the physical and spiritual realms would come down that day, allowing spirits to come back from the dead and cause mischief and mayhem.  So, they themselves would dress up in masks and paint their faces to confuse these spirits. People were hoping to hide their identity. They thought they were disguising themselves as the dead by dressing themselves as demons, ghosts, and zombies.

These days the list of scary costumes has been added to. Vampires, witches, and mummies are all popular for scary Halloween costumes. Classic Movies such as Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Phantom of the Opera have inspired many Halloween costumes over the years. More modern movies such as Friday the Thirteenth, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream and Saw have caused a further plethora of scary masks and costumes. The movie Halloween even produced its own variation on a Halloween costume.

But along with those scary costumes, there are now cowboys, pumpkins, cheerleaders, football players, politicians and pop culture celebrities that have made the Halloween holiday a lighter more fun filled time. These days you are just as likely to bump into a superheroes such as Batman or Superman, a Star Wars character, the US President or Elvis as any scary ghouls in Halloween costume.
