If there's one thing that I love about Halloween, it's the fact that you can literally be whatever you want without being judged. But that doesn't mean everyone is comfortable stepping outside of their normal space when it comes to what they wear. Though I am not of a plus size figure, friends of mine who are have expressed to me that the reason they don't dress up for Halloween is because of how uncomfortable they feel. However, knowing what plus size Halloween costumes are out there for you to make or buy is a way to alleviate that feeling.
I truly think that everyone is entitled to wear what they want and feel as good in it as the next person. Whether you choose to go as something simple like a cowgirl decide to go decked out in mermaid attire, as long as you're comfortable and feel good in it, that's all that matters. If purchasing a costume is not something you want to do, try going the DIY route to give yourself a way to be more creative when it comes to your 'fit this Halloween.
