It’s October and kids are well into the school season however the end of month is all they are waiting for in order to transform themselves into a magical creature for one sole evening: the evening of Halloween which is just round the corner.
Naturally, it’s not just kids, but parents too who have a great deal of preparation ahead, which generally covers the transforming of the garden and doorstep, to check through last years’ decorations and of course to purchase and then to prepare the biggest and most beautiful pumpkins to become magical creatures for the occasion.
And this is just the beginning. The biggest task still waits: the costumes. Getting a fun costume is hard enough for the adults but this is still nothing compared to the kids’ costumes. Kids fantasize for months on what they want to become. And if that wouldn’t be enough they are also prone to change their minds pretty frequently. Last years’ costumers are no use any longer: they are either „boring” or they are simply just too small to fit. And to add to the whole story parents just can’t get the costumes months ahead: they generally have to get them the very day of the big night.
it’s no wonder getting kids’ costumes is a fun yet an especially tiring hassle which parents try to resolve in several different ways, depending on their possibilities and resources. Let’s see some of the most general ways to get a real Halloween costume:
DIY Halloween Costumes
DIY is a fantastic way to choose if you want your kids to have their very own, personalized fun costumes. The advantages: if one have most resources at hand along with a sewing machine and a great deal of experience this is a great way to go. The downside: very few people have the energy, the sewing experience and the time to walk this way. Also, in case it comes out there are a whole bunch of things to buy, this experience is really easy to turn out to become the most expensive and time consuming way ever to get a costume.

Borrowing and the elders’ costumes
If there are more kids in a family or several kids in the whole family borrowing a Halloween costume becomes a very easy and walkable way for one to avoid a whole lot of costs and wins a considerable amount of time. In case one can use the elders’ costumes, there are lots of ways to refresh or even to transform a worn costume for it to look cool and unique in the same time.
Ordering or buying a Halloween costume
There are several online stores in the US which have a great deal of expertise in Halloween costumes for all the family and for kids of all age. This is a way most families decide to choose as this is hassle free although it may cost a whole lot more than any other ways. The other downside is, that most pre-made costumes will have fitting issues and may also have the tendency of leaving our kids yearning for something more customized for their taste. The good side of pre ordered costumes is, that they often offer whole sets of costumes for the whole family: take Adams Family or Flintstones as the best examples.
Bear in mind that in case you decide to purchase or order a Halloween costume does it in the last minute. Kids change their minds frequently and you wouldn’t want to buy a costume which eventually won’t even be worn in Halloween’s eve.
