Want to know the scariest Halloween scenario? It’s the day before All Hallow’s Eve and you don’t have a costume. Talk about spooky. Avoid this nightmare by getting your costume figured out today. The best place to start? With a list of classic costume ideas.
Sure, it’s fun to be trendy, but pulling out a great traditional fright night look never goes out of style. Better yet, these are such standards that they come in every shape and size, be it a ghost costume for Grammy or a sweet angel look for your newborn. And because you’re getting a head start, you’ll be able to order a costume that’s comfortable and well made with plenty of time for it to arrive, rather than fretting by the mailbox waiting for it to get to your house in time. Instead, you can use that time to maximize the freak factor of your Halloween yard decorations. Or plot out some truly over-the-top Halloween treats. Host an apple bobbin’ competition or make a master plan for the ultimate Day of the Dead musical chairs game. Whatever gets you in the mood for the most horrifying holiday of the year, indulge yourself knowing your costumes are taken care of.
