What’s Halloween without Some Gore?
Tricks to "Scarify" Your Costume
A few costume accessories can be the difference between a costume that's just ho-hum and one that will get some big reactions from friends. For example, consider taking your zombie get-up to a new level with a great makeup job. You can even come up with a character that's completely original by using a disgusting gash on your face. Let your imagination run wild a little bit this year and see what you can come up with that will help your costume stand out from the crowd.
Be a Little Shocking
Halloween is the one night of the year when the rulebook gets tossed out the window. So, this year feel free to let your defenses down and do what you want to do with your costume. Why not try some body paint or body glitter to create a unique look? Even if you're normally a shy person, with a creative costume you can show a side of your personality that most people never get to see.
Great costumes are created by paying attention to the little details that make them interesting. With the right costume accessories, you'll create a one-of-a-kind costume that people won't stop talking about all night long.

Thursday, October 4, 2012 0 CommentsIf you're an avid cosplayer or you're just someone who's excited that Halloween is coming up, you've probably had an idea of what you wanted your costume to be for a long time. Great costumes take thought and preparation. It's definitely not too early to shop for the perfect costume accessories that will make your costume stand out among all of the others this Halloween.
A great costume idea can be put to shame without accessories. The accessories you choose can make or break your costume. So, why not go all out? Just a little bit of attention to some key details can give you a great costume. After all, what would the Grim Reaper be without a great cape? What would Luke Skywalker be without the perfect light saber? Your accessories will help you create the perfect look you pictured in your mind.
How To Accessorize?
When you're trying to decide what types of things will work great for costume accessories, think about the original character. What does that character wear that makes his or her costume unique and different? What makes the character stand out from others and identifies him or her? Those are the things you should consider adding to your own costume. Those are the accessories that will create a great look for you.
This Halloween you can have a great night with the character of your choice! Our shop is full of everything that you will need to make your costume the best one you've ever worn. Halloween only comes once a year, so dress up, accessorize, and have a blast!

Or, maybe you'd just like to show your kids that Halloween can be a grown-up holiday too! We can help you come up with Halloween costumes that you'll love.
The Sky's The Limit
Take a minute and think about what you've always wanted to be for Halloween. Maybe there's a favorite childhood character that you once loved but you never had the opportunity to portray when you were younger. Maybe there's a popular superhero movie that just came out and you would love to be the hero or heroine, as the case may be. There really is no limit to what you can accomplish through Halloween costumes. So, stretch your imagination a bit, and come up with something that's as unique as you are.
If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right
Anyone who dresses up every year for Halloween or to attend conventions will tell you that the best costumes have lots of details. So, make those details happen in your costume. Study your character, even right down to their personality. The more authentic you can can make your costume, the more impressive it will be to those around you. And the more fun you'll have!
Halloween is such a fun time of year, and it's a shame to leave all the fun to the kids. Like the old saying goes, "youth is wasted on the young". So, get out there and have some fun this year!
