Halloween costume ideas - you can make them or buy them
Where do I find cool, funny Halloween costumes for adults, kids and couples?
It's time for Halloween costume shopping. I usually don't dress up myself. Usually I just pull out my clown nose and tell people that my costume is a "grown-up with a clown nose." Original? Yes. Stupid as hell? Absolutely.
Even though I don't put any time or effort into costuming myself at Halloween, I do really appreciate a cool or funny costume and decided to review some Halloween costumes and web sites where you can purchase Halloween costumes. Of course some of the most funny costumes ones are the ones that people make themselves. Here's a few examples of homemade Halloween costumes. If you've got the time, you can make your own but, you can also buy some funny and creative costumes at retail stores like Target.com, Macys.com, Sears.com and J.C. Penny (jcp.com).
I have actually spent hours creating stupid gifts for friend's birthdays, like the Belly Button Blow Dryer, but if I needed a costume, I'd probably just search for a cool one to buy. I surfed around the Halloween section at Target.com and must admit there were some costumes that were pretty impressive. Of course, you can get any of the hot super heroes, political figures or assortment of trendy stuff there, but if you're looking for something a bit different, or off-the wall then here are some great choices:
HalloweenCostumes.com has a great variety of ideas, and a great selection of categories including kids, adults, sexy, couples and even group. And if you surf around some of the other costume sites you'll find costumes like the one I found at costumesupercenter.com featuring a couples' costume with the woman as an electrical outlet, and the man as a plug (pictured).
There are also some excellent Halloween costume choices (including some cool baby and toddler costumes) at costumeexpress.com. They even have a 4D app for iPhone and Android that you can download to make your costume shopping easier. Or at least cooler.
If you create any bizarre, funny, creative Halloween costumes, take a pic and send it to me. Go on, I dare ya.
