Halloween is a holiday, which is celebrated on October 31 each year. It is believed that on Halloween night ghosts, witches and fairies are very active, and the dead can return to the earth.

Activities on Halloween include dressing in costumes and costume parties, trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, tours in haunted houses, carving pumpkins, reading scary stories and watching scary movies.

And I love Halloween. I can dress-up and be whoever I want. I decided that this year I'll dress-up like Michael Jackson. I looked up and I found all sorts of costumes kids for grown-ups, like myself. I can't wait.

So, how can we dress like King of Pop himself? There are really so many options because Michael Jackson was famous almost all his life.

Let's start with his childhood and teenage years, when he performed with his brothers in their band The Jackson 5. That would be nice costume for kids - boys in the band all had big hair and very colorful clothes. Later he cut his hair and he loved to wear black or white fedora hat.

In the eighties and early nineties there were Thriller and Bad time - in Thriller he wore red leather jacket and in Bad he was dangerous in black.

Then there were elegant times in Smooth Criminal, where he wore white suit, white fedora and special anti-gravity shoes.

Another option for great Halloween costume is an older MJ - in his last years her often wore black wig with straight hair, black outfits and black shoes.

As you can see there are so many options - it's really hard to choose one. And, of course, let's not forget about the make-up - Michael usually wore it and you

can see instructions and some tricks in the video below.
