Top 5 Plus Size Halloween Costumes For Women

Top 5 Plus Size Halloween Costumes For Women

Plus size Halloween costumes for women aren’t limited at all: there are plenty of costume ideas to suit all shapes, sizes and styles. Here are five of the best female plus size costume ideas to get you started this Halloween.

1) Flapper

Flapper costumes are fun and sexy no matter what your size. Flapper dresses often come with layers and tassels which help to cover up any bumps you might want to hide. They make use of sequins, bright colors and beads which will attract attention towards you in all the right ways! Flapper Halloween costumes also give you the chance to wear a dramatic short bob wig, and don a feather bower for the ultimate expression of your womanly freedom!

2) Clown

Clowns always make fun plus size Halloween costumes for women at Halloween. You don’t have to go for the traditional red fuzzy hair and baggy trousers, either. Some other clown costume ideas include hoop dress skirts with bright wigs, colorful tights and spotty shoes. Want something even more unique? Then opt for a Nightmare Before Christmas clown costume.

3) Renaissance Woman

The renaissance woman costume is always a firm favorite at Halloween, especially for plus size women. The benefit of these costumes is that they’re designed for people with curves! This way you can show them off instead of hiding them away, and you’ll look fantastic. Just make sure that you opt for full skirts – those thinner at the waist and wider at the feet will be the most flattering for your figure.

4) Vampire

Vampires come in all shapes and sizes, so they also make a good theme for plus size Halloween costumes. For ladies who don’t want to show off too much skin, there are a number of plus size costumes featuring full gowns and corsets for the “gothic” vampire look. Vampires also dress in dark colors which are known to be slimming, especially when combined with long necklaces and strategically placed belts.

5) Pirate

The classic pirate wench features a flowing skirt, long boots and a peasant blouse. A corset can help show off those beautiful curves, then add a flowing wig, bandana and sword to complete your pirate look. If you prefer you can also wear black leggings under a long blouse for an alternative plus size pirate look.

5 Ideas For Funny Mens Halloween Costumes

5 Ideas For Funny Men’s Halloween Costumes

Halloween is an excuse to have fun, which helps to explain why funny men’s Halloween costumes are so popular. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind poking a little fun at yourself, then these costume ideas will be right up your street.

1) Super Mario

This is a great costume for the larger man, or anyone who wants to become one for the evening! The Super Mario costume should include the bright red shirt, the blue plumber overalls, the red hat with the “M” logo and the famous Mario mustache.

2) Banana

The banana has always been a firm favorite in the world of funny men’s Halloween costumes. You can either go for the standard banana, or turn yourself into a banana “flasher” with a costume that has the banana skin peeling away from the bottom of the fruit.

3) Inflatable Doll

This is a funny costume suitable for adult-only Halloween parties. Don a skin-colored one-piece body suit and transform yourself into a blow up doll. To really pull this off, you’ll need to get a good mask that lets you have that constantly “surprised” look on your face.

4) Drag Queen

It’s always funny when any man goes dressed as a woman at Halloween. If you’re not afraid of showing off your feminine side then you could go dressed as a famous female celebrity, Miss World, a pregnant nun, or any kind of woman you fancy being for one night.

5) Big Baby

Why is it that men love to dress up as big babies on Halloween? If you’re the kind of man who never really grew up then this is the perfect Halloween costume for you. Just get your hands on a giant nappy, a dummy and baby grow and you can spend the night as a baby.

6) Where’s Waldo

Everyone will recognize the classic Waldo character at Halloween. To get this look right you need the bright red and white stripy jumper, and the matching stripy bobbly hat. Ironically, it won’t be too hard for people to spot you among the crowd in this classic outfit!

5 Creative Halloween Costumes For Women

5 Creative Halloween Costumes For Women

Want to make sure you don’t look like everyone else this Halloween? Got a bit more time on your hands to come up with something unforgettable? Then here are 5 creative Halloween costumes for women that you can try.

1) Mermaid

The beauty of mermaid costumes is that they can be as simple or as detailed as you require. The best mermaid costumes involve an intricate tail that goes right down to the floor. Some women create a long tail with holes for their feet, that then flicks up at the end. Add to this creative look with blue and green ribbons in your hair (like seaweed), and a shell bikini top.

2) Mother Nature

Mother Nature may be a popular Halloween costume theme, but there are many ways to go about putting it together. The most creative Halloween costumes for women tend to go into more detail. You might choose to paint a giant ball around you as the Earth and use this as your costume, or create a detailed gown full of natural materials such as leaves, flowers, fruit and other natural imagery.

3) Blow Up Doll

Warning – this idea is strictly for adult parties only! For an extra creative Halloween costume for women, try dressing up as a classic blow up doll. To do so, you’re going to need to buy a skin-colored body suit, with holes in all the right places (make sure you’re wearing something underneath!) You should even cover your head, with drawn on red lips and wide eyes for the complete love doll look.

4) Body Paint Costumes

Body paint can be used in so many ways to create the most unique Halloween costumes for both men and women. It’ll take a bit of practice, but why not try creating the costume of your choice completely out of body paint? Do it right and people won’t even notice at first that it isn’t real – this is a great way to shock and surprise people.

5) Split Personality

Lastly, split personality themes always make for some creative Halloween costumes for women. This means dressing half as you in one style, and the other half another. For example, one could be your good side and one could be your evil side, or one could be a superhero in their day to day “normal” wear, one can be their superhero side.

5 Unique Ideas For Halloween Table Decorations

5 Unique Ideas For Halloween Table Decorations

Coming up with Halloween table decorations is always great fun. Thankfully it’s easy to create a spooky atmosphere at this time of year. These suggestions should help get you going, and they’re all perfect for the whole family to put together.

1) Pumpkin

You knew that pumpkin would be on this list somewhere, didn’t you? But there are many ways to display your pumpkin proudly, besides a basic carving. You could decorate the base of the pumpkin with fall leaves, use the pumpkin as a vase for a big display of flowers/ leaves, or even spray the pumpkin black to create a Halloween-themed pumpkin and spider web display.

2) Body Parts

These are the kind of Halloween table decorations that kids just love to help you make! Get yourself some Halloween eyeballs and dot them around the table, or go one step further and create your own Halloween specimen jars. You and your kids can work together to find a range of vegetables to represent different body parts.

3) A Witches Hat

This is another hugely popular idea for a Halloween centerpiece, and it isn’t difficult to see why! This can be as simple as buying a cheap witches hat from a Halloween costume store and decorating it with spiders, bats and any other Halloween-themed items. If you were feeling adventurous, you could make a huge Halloween witch hat cake to place in the middle of the table.

4) Candles

Get creative with some candles to create the perfect atmosphere with your Halloween table decorations. The gothic theme works best for this, so stick to black candlestick holders and long, thin candlesticks. You can use this as a centerpiece, and place smaller candles all around the table. Turn the lights off to create the spooky atmosphere you want at a Halloween party. Remember to be careful about where you place any real candles, especially if they’re near flammable material or could easily be knocked over.

5) Tablecloths

No matter which Halloween table decorations you ultimately choose, you should buy a themed tablecloth as the backdrop of your display. The simplest option is to buy a plain black cloth and decorate it with what goes on the table. Some tablecloths are already decorated with bats, skulls and other Halloween imagery.

6) Skulls

Around Halloween it’s easy to find skulls available to buy in stores. Some of them are suitable for holding a tea light candle, adding to the atmosphere. Or you could use them as candy jars to gross people out every time they want to reach for a treat!

5 Ideas For EyeCatching Halloween Window Decorations

5 Ideas For Eye-Catching Halloween Window Decorations

There are many ways to decorate your home for Halloween. If you want people on the outside to see you’ve made an effort then Halloween window decorations are perfect for doing just that. Here are five ideas to inspire you.

Spiders And Bats

Some of the simplest and most popular decorations come in the form of hanging spiders and bats. These can be made at home using cardboard and/ or pipe cleaners, and hung down the glass using pieces of string. They may be simple, but they help create the atmosphere for anyone passing by and looking at your home.

Cobwebs

You can’t have spiders without cobwebs! There are plenty of cobweb decorations available to buy in store, that’ll stretch all across the surface of your windows. If you want to make your own then you can cut shapes out of cardboard or create intricate spiderweb patterns using string. You can also use old cotton balls you may have lying around – just quickly tear them up and add them to your current window display.

Autumn Window Decorations

Some people go with the autumn theme for their Halloween window decorations. This means leaves, dried flowers, and vegetables like pumpkins. One idea is to go foraging and create your own Halloween garlands for the window. Or you could buy false leaves if you want to keep using them again and again, year after year. The beauty of autumn decorations is that you can keep them up for longer even after Halloween is finished.

Halloween Curtains

Some people go as far as to put up Halloween themed curtains at this time of the year. You’ll find all sorts of decorated curtains available to buy in store or online, though if you’re going for an overall spooky theme in the home then you may choose simple gothic velvet to match the rest of your Halloween décor. Although curtains cost more than other Halloween decorations, they’re cost effective if you plan on using them year after year.

Life-Sized Halloween Dummies

If you want to go one step further than everyone else then why not decorate your windows with life-sized Halloween dummies? That could mean a mummy staring out at passersby, a zombie trying to escape from your home, or even the model of a skeleton staring out of your window. These create an excellent display for those outside of your home.

Top 5 Ideas For Dog Halloween Costumes

Top 5 Ideas For Dog Halloween Costumes

Dog Halloween costumes are becoming more and more popular every year! There’s nothing more fun than getting your dog involved in the excitement of Halloween. Many people even choose to get their dog an outfit that’ll complement their own!

You’d be surprised at just how many Halloween costumes there are available to buy for dogs of all sizes. Here are six of the best ideas.

1) Pumpkin

There’s something so cute about turning your pooch into a pumpkin! This costume is best for smaller dogs with a rounder body. Just get a ready made costume or create one yourself, turning your dogs body into a pumpkin and adding a hood with a little green detail for the stalk.

2) Dinosaur

There are dinosaur costumes available for all sizes of dog, but this is an especially cute idea for tiny dogs that like to think they’re fierce!

3) Dog Rider Costumes

If you have a very large dog then it can be hard to find the right costume for him. One idea is to use a rider costume. This means a saddle with a mini figurine of a person riding on their back. This looks funny as is also a good option for those dogs that tend not to like being dressed up in normal costumes. They will hardly notice they’re wearing this one.

4) Dracula

This is a good option for dogs of all sizes, as you can keep it relatively simple if you need to. The main element of the Dracula dog Halloween costumes is a cape, which is easy to get your dog to wear if they’re usually bothered by clothing.

5) Superdog

There are plenty of Halloween costumes available if you want to transform your pet into Superdog for the evening! Some of them even make use of his front legs for a more “human-like” and humorous costume effect.

6) Dog Wigs

Sometimes the simplest costume ideas are the best. If you really want your dog to look cute and funny then all you need is a wig! You can’t fail to laugh when you see your pooch in a funky hairstyle. Dog wigs are far easier to get hold of than you might think. The trick is to look at the size guides and measure your dog’s head to make sure it fits and stays on.

Remember, although dog Halloween costumes are fun for you, you have to make sure your dog is comfortable. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, our dogs just won’t wear what we want them to! Get something that’s well made and fits them properly to keep them safe and comfortable this Halloween.
