Halloween Costumes for Adults, Kids and Pets
Halloween costumes are a long time tradition that many people take part it. Halloween is just around the corner and for some people, it is their favorite holiday.
Remember the Rosanne show and how she and Dan tried to pull the scariest Halloween tricks? Well, for others, Halloween is a time to dress us as your favorite alter ego and or a fun night out with friends.
There is another group of folks, who enjoy dressing up their dog or cats in adorable yet pet humiliating costumes. Halloween costumes for toddlers while can only be used for that one season can also be quite adorable and fun. I have researched a host of fun non-tradition costumes for those who love to dress up for the occasion.
I still remember how excited we were as kids when the holiday rolled around. We were all deciding what wanted to be and prayed that our parents would be able to find our favorite costume.
Living in the city, we went out in groups, promising only to go to the homes of people we knew. We always came back with bags of teeth rotting candy and giggles and smiles!
There are also the Biblical-themed costumes for people who don't want to celebrate Halloween, but give their children an alternative like a Holyween party at home or church! So, you always have the option of going as your favorite Bible character.

A lot of people love to go to parties dressed as a dynamic duo, such as Bonnie and Clyde, Sonny and Cher or King Kong and Faye Ray, boy was she a screamer! These are not the usual Halloween where you will find walking the street on Halloween.

Adult personalities are a little more expensive, but you will surely stand out!
Of course, these are not the usually trick-or-treat wear, but what you might find at a ball or adult party.
Christian themes are very popular with those who those who prefer to celebrate the holiday, dressing as prophets and disciples or characters found in scripture. Churches take this opportunity to give members at a time to have fun as an alternative to the scary concepts traditional to the holiday.
The Christian themes could be Mary the mother of God, a shepherd, nun, priest or John the Baptist. These costumes also cannot be found at a drug store but must be purchased or rented as a specialty store, unless you are handy with a sewing machine.
