Whatever Halloween Costume You Choose
Remember to try and be a little creative with it! Anyone can go out and buy a store bought costume, but to make it work really well you need to put a little extra effort in to your costume. Adding the creative touch could be anything from a little face paint, to some gems of accessories.
Whether you want to add a 60's pendant, some gangster shades, or a doctors stethescope, a simple Halloween costume accessory can add that extra little touch to your outfit.
You also want to remember to develop a character before you go party, dressing up is only the start, but a mad scientist needs a manical laugh, a Gangster needs a tough voice, and a greaser and his girlfriend need to be able to..erm.. sing in harmony?
Developing the right personality adds that little extra something which can make a great costume perfect.
