For the 4 F’s to Choose a Great Child Costume!

There are 4 days left until Halloween so it’s only right that I introduce you to the 4 keys to a good night.  Otherwise known as the 4 F’s or the 4 Factors, these tips can insure that your child has a great Halloween.  Follow at least two of these rules and you’re child is in for one heck of a night.  Each tip is helpful, and they all surround our collection of Halloween Costumes!


The first key is Fun!  The sole purpose of Halloween is for children to have fun.  Trick-or-Treating covers some of that, but the costumes are the catalysts.  Funny Costumes are fun to the core!  Money, crayons, games, and roach costumes are just some of the interesting choices.  The Child Chick Magnet Costume is sure to cause gut-busting laughter along with the rest of the collection.  Fun can also be found in the Girl Dress Up Costumes that will make your little girl’s dreams come true.  Kids Celebrity Costumes do the same job and lets them play the role of an entertainer they aspire to be.  Fun is found everywhere!


Fright and Food are the next two F’s.  They’re straightforward.  Frightening decorations and costumes are a staple of Halloween.  Child Scary Costumes have all the classic monsters, ghosts, and horror movie icons.  Michael Myers and Leatherface can now square off to see who’s top dog!  The Food key alludes to driving force for a perfect Halloween for kids: candy.  Food Costumes are fun to look at and even more fun to wear, while Candy Costumes tickle that sweet tooth and directs your child’s urge to go from house to house.


The last F is Fuzz.  Yes, Fuzz!  It’s a wildcard.  If the candy is not flowing, scares are minimal, and fun is dwindling, Fuzz is the last hope.  Have you ever wondered why people like to pet animals?  It’s because they look and feel nice.  A Child Animal Costume will draw attention and spectators.  Tails are fuzzy and fur is fuzzy.  The same goes for the big puffed up skirts and dresses on Child Disney Costumes.  Everything has a purpose!


Keep these 4 Factors in mind and the Halloween Costume you choose will be the right one!

So Many Choices, So Little Time: Halloween Costumes that Solve a Good Problem

What is Halloween all about?  Not one specific characteristic defines Halloween.  Okay, maybe fear factors into it, but over the years costumes have represented subjects from all over the spectrum: funny, sexy, weird, political.  The list goes on and on.  With that said, there are so many choices to choose from and Halloween is right around the corner and down the block from Elm Street.  Take a second to pick out something that suits you from our collection of Halloween Costumes.


Halloween spirit is instilled at an early age.  Child Costumes should be at the top of the list.  Your child can go scheming for candy in whatever costume they can think of.  Animal Costumes, TV Costumes, Career Costumes, Celebrity Costumes, and more are available options for your child.  Just lean towards their interests, and Halloween should be one of the better nights of their year!


Although the kids always come first, the grown ups rule the nighttime!  Sexy Costumes span the gamut by running from seductive to sexy; not much difference, but there’s no need.  Skirts, stockings, and all different kinds of colorful tops to represent different characters and roles are available.  There is no limit to how sexy a costume can get!  For a society deeply ingrained in pop culture fandom, Movie Costumes are an essential part of Halloween.  Everyone wants to be recognized, and everyone wants to recognize others.  That is more than possible under the guise of an action hero or cartoon character.  You can also stand out for other reasons in a Funny Costume.  A good laugh can change a whole night!


With Halloween quickly approaching, think about what your place is in the grand scheme of the night.  Do you want to have fun and make a lasting impression on everyone you come across?  If yes, check out our collection of Halloween Costumes!
