How to Find the Perfect Halloween Costume This Fall

Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s not complete unless you have the perfect Disguise!

In order to select the right costume, here are some tips from Jim Jacobsen, director of operations at Arizona’s Original Scream Park.

On applying makeup:

  • Select makeup that can be removed easily.  Some cheaper makeup can leave a stain so try to go with commercial quality.
  • Always start with a clean face or area.  Wash your face first so the makeup goes on, and comes off, easily.  Use a commercial remover for makeup.  Sometimes, regular soap will not work well.
  • Avoid red makeup around your eyes.  This color can ‘bleed’ and run into your eyes causing them to become irritated

How to select the right costume:

  • For kids, be sure the costume is safe for little ones.  Don’t dress them in anything long that they might trip on.
  • For adults, you might want to make sure your costume is comfortable to move around in.  Pushing a stroller or carrying a wiggling toddler in a costume that’s too tight, won’t be fun.
  • If you are looking for a costume, consider on-line as well.   There are many discounters that sell the same costumes as you see in costume shops – but at a much lower price.
  • Have fun with a costume.  This is your chance to be a little (or a lot) crazy.  Let your inner kid out and enjoy the evening.

You can bring your favorite movie character to life just by wearing their costume, no matter if you’re a child or adult.  Like Bumblee from Transformers or Alice from Disney’s live action feature Alice in Wonderland.  Act out your favorite scenes and be the talk of the town in these delightfully detailed costumes by Disguise a division of Jakks Pacific.

  1. Every year I say I am going to dress up and every year passes with me NOT dressing up. This year, I am going to dress up. These are great tips…comfort factor will be kept in mind when I make my choice. A Zombie should be easy and comfy enough 🙂

  2. I can't remember the last time I dressed up… by the time I get costumes for all the kids I'm burnt out! (and broke!)
