While most of our readers celebrate the spooky season year-round, for many lovers of the holidays, it starts October 1st. So, since Halloween is now officially just around the corner, it’s time for you to cultivate that perfect costume that dislodges the right number of chills and thrills. Never fear, if you’re the type of ghoul who’s trying to keep within a budget but is still wanting to come up with a creative, original costume idea, never fear. Simply look into a crystal ball, or easily read the following blog for some dreadful ideas that will help you select an eerie-sistable disguise.

Decide on what type of look you’re going for

Selecting the perfect Halloween ensemble can be a difficult decision, especially with the power to buy horror costumes online and in-store. Nevertheless, the easiest way to narrow down your list of ghastly apparel choices is by determining which category your disguise will fall under. Will your Halloween costume be sexy? Scary? Funny? Cute? With the chance to hide behind a spooktastic persona for a day, it’s important to choose a garb that you’ll love and even better, something that’s unique! In finding your own style, ponder what you wear daily and what’s most comfortable for you. This alone should help you to decide what type of getup would best compliment you.

What colors do you enjoy wearing?

While most horror fans find black to be a satisfying shade to flaunt, some prefer the added vibrance that can go alongside shopping for the ultimate costume. So, before you buy horror costumes online, it’s best to determine the types of colors you take pleasure in wearing and select an idea around that. For example, if you favor shades of black, gray, or white, perhaps an antihero or villain such as Dracula, Darth Vader, or Beetlejuice would appease your appetite for an otherworldly horror costume. Whereas, those who adore more lively shades, like reds, oranges, and yellows, should consider being a clown, a superhero, or a pumpkin. It’s almost Halloween, which means anything goes at Nightmare Toys!

Consider adding to your previous costumes

Have you worn a fearsome costume that has haunted your memories, even years later? Well, if you preserved this chilling garb, a couple of elements may be able to be used to create something new and devilishly dark. Not only will this save you money that can be spent adding to your horror decor collection but it will also allow you to relive what you loved about your past costume.

Other things to consider before you buy a horror costume online

Aside from the primary deciding factors above, you should also consider the following before you splurge and place your costume order.

  • Check the weather if you plan on spending time outdoors in your costume.
  • If you’ve considered a group costume, ensure that your members have committed to the idea before placing your order.
  • While it’s fun to represent a costume from another culture, be sure what you wearing won’t be considered appropriation.
  • Look for sales. Surprisingly, many online retailers use this time of year to clear out older styles to make room for popular, new ones.
