Halloween is just around the corner, now is the time for you to get your costume ready for the big day. The following are a few great Halloween costume ideas to help you celebrate this year’s festivities in style. Whether you make them yourself or buy them from a costume store, remember that the point of this holiday is to have fun.
Sizing is relative – Dallas thrift store s are often filled with older clothing, and we all know clothing stores like to change up their sizing charts from time to time. My recommendation to thrift stores shoppers is to look in racks marked one size above and one size below your actual size. If you’re a size 6, but there’s an absolutely stunning Jessica McClintock ball gown on the size 8 racks, try it on anyway. It’s possible the sizing standards when the dress was made were different, and the dress will fit perfectly. If not, thrift store clothing is inexpensive enough you could have the dress tailored and still come out ahead.
A man born under this sign is likely to retreat if he feels that he’s being pressured into something he’s simply not ready for. He won’t hold back when it comes to telling you as much and a conversation like that will not only be uncomfortable it will be emotionally devastating to you, as well.
Fortunately for us fashion-challenged women of the world, there really are some simple, basic trips to help look great on a budget. The operative words are simple and basic. Building a good wardrobe is kind of like building a good home. It has to have a straightforward, solid foundation or the whole thing will come crashing down around your ears.
Start the no-sew ballerina costume for little girls with materials you have on hand. If you do not have these basic clothing items for little girls, they can be purchased inexpensively.
One year for Halloween my brother had one of those latex masks that fit completely over the head of Richard Nixon. The mask was a very uncanny resemblance of the President who was in office from the late ’60’s to his resignation in 1974. It featured his long ski jump-like nose and droopy face. My brother had the voice, body language, and mannerisms of Nixon, right down to doing his famous double peace sign symbols with each hand doing a cross salute with the arms.
One more very important note, the Barack Obama personality of a Halloween costume figure is as important as the costume itself. You have to believe you are the President. It is a good idea to watch clips online from YouTube, CNN, or any other news source to practice some of his mannerisms. Speak deliberately and be sure to pause ever so often when speaking like Obama. Whenever he approaches a podium he likes to look out to the left and to the right of the crowd as if he were a king looking upon his subjects. If you walk like Obama, speak like Obama, look like Obama, you must be Obama.
