What to Be for Halloween: Unique Costume ideas – 3268zauberLooking for original Halloween costume ideas? here are 5 great ideas for child, teen, or adult Halloween costumes.
It’s hard to decide what to be for Halloween. the holiday has been around for so long that it seems like every conceivable costume has been done to death already. Or has it? these 5 unique Halloween costume ideas will not only be the only one on the block, they will be remembered for years.
Unique Halloween Costume Idea – A "Who"
The 2000 cinema remake of Dr. Seuss’s classic story How the Grinch Stole Christmas offers not only a compelling storyline, but also a great idea for a cute Halloween costume.
One only needs the patience to create an authentic over-the-top who hairstyle (wigs or hair extensions will be necessary for most people.) Whos also have long feet, plus a big belly and bottom. Female Whos have long, fake eyelashes. this makes a good individual or group Halloween costume.
Creative Halloween Costume Idea – Santa Claus
Another cool Halloween costume that provides a delightful blending of the holidays is Santa Claus. most people don’t think of dressing as a Christmas icon on Halloween, but why not? A Santa suit and a false beard is easy to come by.
To adapt this into a group Halloween costume, Santa can be accompanied by people dressed as reindeer (more elaborate) or wrapped gifts (easier to make; see Cardboard Box Costumes for instructions.)
Funny Halloween Costume ideas – Flu Shot
There’s nothing funnier than a Halloween costume that satirizes current political events. with the recent H1N1 (swine flu) panic and the institutionalized push for seasonal flu shots every year, dressing as a giant syringe marked "flu shot" for trick-or-treating is a great way to create a Halloween sensation.
This syringe Halloween costume can also be turned into a couple Halloween costume. One can be the syringe, and the other can be the doctor or nurse administering the shot.
Original Halloween Costume ideas – TSA Agent
Airport safety is tightening regulations all the time, and getting searched by airport security on the way to a favorite vacation destination is no longer rare. why not spoof this by dressing as a TSA agent for Halloween?
Being an airport security agent for Halloween is easy. It only takes some nondescript blue pants and a dark jacket (preferably with a label that says "TSA" on the lapel,) a laminated photo ID hanging on a lanyard around the neck, and most importantly, a pair of rubber gloves.
Cool Halloween Costume ideas – Biblical Figure
Great figures of ancient Biblical history are rarely used as the inspiration for a Halloween costume, but anything is fair game on Halloween. Long robes tied at the waist are an essential piece of Biblical dress.
Women and children can cover their heads with a towel or cloth tied with a band around the forehead; men can wear long beards and carry a wooden staff. If the weather allows, sandals may be worn to be more authentic. but in areas that get really cold by October, closed-toe shoes are just fine.
Whether for individuals, groups, or couples, there are plenty of unique adult and teen Halloween costume ideas out there. get creative this year and dress up for Halloween as something new for a change!
