Dressing in Halloween Costumes

One of the cutest sights in the word has to be the way that little children look when they are all dressed up in fancy dress. This could be for the Christmas pageant, when they resemble angels and shepherds, for the Easter parade as chicks and bunnies or all dressed up in Halloween costumes to go trick or treating. In each case the sight of them makes me well up and when my own children are among the group, I will confess to a couple of tears sneaking out of my eyes when I look at them.

There is something magical about dressing up and even adults get in to the habit of fancy dress at certain times of the year. Just think about how many of us dress up as Santa Claus or an elf at the Christmas party or just at home for the amusement of our family and friends. There are also many parties held throughout the year which are based on a theme and require you to come dressed up as some character or other, in keeping with the theme of the party.

It is really at Halloween though that fancy dress comes into its own and the time of year when companies specialising in the hire or selling of fancy dress costumes, really make their fortunes. At this time almost every household will have the need for at least one costume, and in America the craze is for everybody to dress up and thereby requiring many Halloween costumes. If you are nifty with a needle and know your way around a sewing machine, it is possible to cut some corners and make your own Halloween costumes, or adjust some previous ones.

Children’s Halloween costumes can be quite expensive to buy and since they grow up so fast, you will need to buy a new one each year since these days kids object to wearing hand me downs and will baulk at the thought of wearing a costume that their sibling wore last year. Often you will find that making your children’s Halloween costumes at home will work out at about the same price as a shop bought one, after you have hunted down the design, the pattern, the fabric and the accessories. Add to this the amount of time you will spend on the construction and the stress factor when things go wrong, and you may just wish that you had never even started it all.

One more thing that you will need to keep in mind is that children today are a lot more aware of their social peers and pressures and will want to have what their friends will be wearing. If, after you have proudly dressed your child in a home made costume, you hear the resentful and surly tones in their comments, you may just wish that you had let them buy the Halloween costumes that they had originally wanted from the toy shop in the first place and saved your sanity.
