There are a couple of ways to find adult costumes. You can go to a regular costume shop, department store, or find one online. The first option has the worst-case scenario. When you go to one of these shops, you will not get a good costume. You might be able to get a mask and makeup, but most retailers don’t carry anything close.
The best option is to find a website. There are hundreds out there, there is no doubt about it. If you have inquiries about upcoming events, currently selling costumes, or can’t find what you are looking for there, you can type in the word “fashion” and up will come to a costume store near you! You might even want to pick a name and go there.
One of the best costumes around right now is Lilah. Lilah is an Egyptian princess. The costumes stores online have a wide selection of Lilah costumes. Since it is an Egyptian princess, it has a long heritage of fans that love her. The trouble is, your local costume shop does not carry any Lilah costumes unless someone has bought one, and if they have, there is no way they are going to let you take one home unless you come back when the store is closed!
A couple of other popular categories are movie themes. These can be action heroes as well as other more classic flicks. People love superhero costumes, especially young boys. Spiderman and Superman are very popular in many households, don’t get these costumes right now!
Period costumes are something people love to play. Think of dressing up as Cleopatra, or like themselves! Some of these costumes are PVC or silk, so you can adjust the fit of them. However, not all are made well, so if you are looking for something accurate, you might want to find a celebrity costume. In the past many people would buy period costumes and then say it doesn’t fit – it starts to fit in your size, but then you buy yet another item to finish the look.
Of course, popular costumes are still popular too. Many people buy costumes based off of movies and sports stars. Clothing like the basketball jersey, football jersey, and baseball uniform is always available.
Drawing people into your social circle is the most effective type of Halloween costume. For DC Comics fans, Robin is incredibly popular. The sad thing is, Robin one day became the Joker one day. It’s not like Super Ninjasave the world (How scary), but psychologically, it’s like Superman saves the world. It has nothing to do with the Robin costume and more with the psyche of the person who transforms into the Joker. Would you want someone to scare you as they go “interfered up your alley?”
But boy, if they arrived in Batman’s outfit you did not know you were buying! No matter what the style, or age, your friends are going to be able to tell what it’s supposed to be. If you want to watch people get lost in your Halloween party, nothing buys it quite like a well-known costume. Isn’t everyone selling the same type of costume? It’s that important to stay safe on Halloween night! Besides, when are people even going to know who you are? Well, you could buy them a costume or put together one yourself and give them as a party favor!
Some people dress up during the day in something like a Halloween outfit. That is super fun. If you are lucky, like me, you may know someone who dresses similarly! Essentially, that means it could be several people dressed the same way on the same night. There is just something about the adventure of trying to put together a costume with these Halloween costume ideas. It is more fun, even if there are five guys dressed the same and it’s five isles of pumpkins. In my experience, the biggest smiles come from a group of people that all come in the same costume. Everyone is happy, and there is something very magical about watching kids make-believe to become someone they are not.
There are so many types of adult costumes out there. Whether you are a theatre person or a romantic, you can live the part of who you are for the night. There are some sexy adult costumes out there. I have even seen water or even a big lobster costume.
We all know that one “truce night” in October is not going to be the same without sex behind a sofa Halloween costume. That is to say unless you dress up like a sexy Alice in Wonderland or Mad Hatter. But truth is, that is usually possessed by a boy or girl (and I don’t care who it is). Regardless, there is always something for everyone!
Find a costume, put together a costume, or buy a costume and face the unknown. What will you be?
