Once a year, we get to leave our everyday selves behind and become someone, or something, else. We can be superheroes. Or ghouls. Or clowns. We can even become inanimate objects. The sky's the limit on Halloween. With the chance to have so much fun, a lot of consideration should go into picking the perfect costume. Who is dressing up? What kind of activities will be happening? When will they begin and end? Where will they be? How am I going to make it happen? These are all things to decide before we make our Halloween costume choice.


1. Going Solo

Choosing a Halloween costume that is just right for you starts with whether you are flying solo. If so, consider your interests and hobbies, and go from there. For instance, if you can’t wait for the next Marvel movie to come out, try dressing like your favorite superhero. If your library is full of Stephen King books, dress like something scary. For the outdoor lover, think about going as your favorite animal. You can even mix it up. If you're a nature lover who never misses an episode of The Walking Dead, be a zombie bear. The fun of this great holiday is that you are only limited by your imagination.
