Around the first of August is the time to start planning your Halloween Outfit.

Some people would say it’s a little too soon to start planning.

But the fact that you clicked on this blog title says you are an excited Halloween fan! And you are ready.

Nobody likes putting together last-minute costumes. They never turn out as amazing as they should be.

Quick costume ideas end up looking rushed and amateur. Who wants to look amateur?

What does it take to put together a complete Halloween outfit?

Planning your Halloween costume includes components like:

finding and styling a wig or hairstyle

finding makeup looks or a makeup artist

obtaining costume pieces





Where do you start?

First Identify why you will need the costume. Will it be for Halloween night only, do you have events planned, or do you want to be ready for when one pops up?

There are several reasons you may need a costume.

You are throwing your own themed party

or will be attending a themed party.

Halloween night, of course.

A costume contest,

or you love putting together a haunted house

or a creepy yard.

All great reasons why you need a costume or several costumes!

Then, pick your theme.

Do you want to be scary?



A celebrity?

Go as a couple?

Or go as a group with your beloved puppy?

(Puppy will need a costume)

Next, where will you be getting the costume?

Thrift stores, Halloween shops, or even making one are all great options.

Don’t forget to get corresponding shoes and accessories to go with it.

If you are Dorothy from the wizard of oz you would need the dress, hair bows, shoes, socks, a basket, and a stuffed puppy.

A purge character would need clothing covered in blood, the mask, shoes, and a fake weapon. You may even want to decorate your car.

After collecting the proper pieces for your costume it's time to look at the hair and makeup.

You can look on Pinterest to see what kind of makeup goes with your costume. This will help you decide your look.

You could even hire a makeup artist if you’re wanting something complicated. If this is the case, I would start looking to find one now and pay a deposit to hold the time and date.

When you are looking at hair options you can buy a wig to complete the look.
You can style your own hair.
go bald
or wear a hat.

If you need someone to do your hair you can pay a deposit to keep a date with a hair artist.

You can also, have a wig styled for you. Putting a wig on is a little different but with the proper guidance you can put one on and it will look natural. Plus, you can use it again.

This year instead of waiting until October to start planning. Have a little fun and start planning now.

With a little more time, you can have the best costume you’ve had in years. Maybe the best costume of all time.
