Of course, first of all, you need to decide on your costume. In fact, there are several issues to think about here, including what you will go as, and whether you will buy your outfit ready-made, or make it yourself.
Now, when it comes to deciding what to go as for Halloween, you need to consider two things. The first is what type of event you will be going to? That is, will it break everyone else’s immersion if you don’t dress spooky? The second is to think about who it would be fun to dress up for a night. After all, you don’t want to select a costume that you get bored of halfway through the evening.
You may think that buying your costume is the most sensible idea, and this can certainly be so. In fact, some of the bagged costumes can be really high quality now, and it can save you from having to spend all of your evenings in October painstaking hand-making your outfit.
However, for many people, half of the fun is in getting creative and coming up with an impressive costume from bits and pieces they find around the house!
Part of making your costume look as authentic as possible is to attend to all the details. This includes the hair you use. In fact, by changing your hair, you can create a much more realistic and authentic look for Halloween.
One way to do this is to use a temporary dye on your hair. Then you can style it in a way that matches your chosen character. Of course, this isn’t something that everyone wants to do, especially when they have chosen something that requires a bright green dye and lots of backcombing! After all, Halloween is on a Thursday this year, and what if you can’t get it back to normal for work on Friday the 1st of November?
Happily, there is another option and its to find a good quality wig shop and select a hairpiece from there. In fact, the advantage of doing so is that you will get a wig that can be used over and over again, even for non-Halloween related events. Something that makes it an excellent investment for anyone that loves fancy dress all year round.
Lastly, you can really make your costume impressive by selecting the right type of makeup. In fact, at Halloween, people often invest in stage makeup to get a bolder effect.
Although, do remember that if you are doing a witch, or vampire look you may already have some glitter eyeshadows that would work really well to create an impressive overall look.
