Why are costumes worn on Halloween?

User Avatar
To scare evil spirits back into their graves. Halloween is when the ghosts/spirits wake up and are allowed to roam the earth, costumes scare them away. It was once known as All Hallows Eve. Nowadays we dress up because Halloween has been changed by the candy companies in order to get more money.

How do you make a DJ Halloween costume?

Put headphones around the neck and wear some cool looking clothes. The Halloween candy basket could look like a CD. Instead of saying "Trick or Treat", make up a cool rap.

What are some ideas for a nerd or geek Halloween costume?

User Avatar
Too late. if you like xkcd go around wearing a black hat and a piece of paper with a vertical line and two lines near the top (arms) pointed in a downward dihedral. add legs if you like and if the paper is long enough... the idea is to make you look as much like a stick figure as possible without completely going overboard.

What are tips for creating a pirate Halloween costume for your child?

Pirate Halloween Costume I'm from British Columbia, Canada, so don't know if you have a "Valu Village" there. It's a second-hand clothing store and they have great costumes there for a fraction of the price. If you don't have a "Valu Village" then I am sure you have a second-hand clothing store (that also sells books, china, etc.) in your area. Go there and buy one for your son because it's cheaper than making it. Go onto www.google.com Type in: Pirate Costumes You'll be able to see what you want your son to look like. Johnny Depp in "The Pirates of the Caribbean" is a good place to start and you can even make due with some things you have at home. To make a Pirate Costume To make a pirate costume is pretty easy. All you really need is some red and white striped pants, with ripped edges at the bottom. You will also need a white shaggy silk shirt, with a tuxedo that has red paint splattered on it. You could have a scarf that matches the pants. (red and white striped) For a hat, a black, or red and white or black striped bandanna would do the trick, just put sew a skull and cross bones onto it. Also, for more of a pirate effect, put on some dark brown make up, in cracks on the sides of your nostrils, above, and underneath the eyes, and put some on the sides of the face, to make a dirt smear. You could take some eye liner, and make some light lines underneath the eyes, to make the eyes stand out, like a dirty look. You could also use with the eyeliner, to make scar looks, just draw with black eye liner, across the face, and on that, make short stitches, going the opposite way. For shoes, you could buy brand new black shoes, just take a butter knife (parent intended) and scrape up the boots, for a more worn look. And let the child use a ring, and put it on their finger, and dirty it up in dirt, for a good dirty look. For more information on pirate costumes, just email: Paige0220 @ hotmail .com (no spaces) and that person, will tell you tons more of what you can do with a pirate costume.

How do you paint a monkey face for Halloween?

User Avatar
Find a cartoon picture of a monkey and try to mimic the picture, cartoons are easier to draw, you might change the nose a little, or the mouth, add hair to the head like your friends, anything to make it your own. Good-Luck

What is the best Halloween costume?

User Avatar
It depends entirely upon you - your age, your gender, your size, whether you have friends or family who would go along with you and make a group costume or not. TV and Movie characters are always good for Halloween, as are video game characters or comic book characters. You could also do a funny costume like a hotdog or pop tart or piece of candy corn. The old stand-by costumes are witch, mummy, vampire, or zombie, of course.

How did the colors orange and black become synonymous with Halloween?

User Avatar
The Celtics were given credit for beginning the holiday as a festival of harvest. Harvest time is when things look orange in autumn, so that's why the orange. Black refers to the side of Halloween that deals with the festival of the dead, which it was once believed to be. Black also represents darkness. Pumpkins are orange and some believe this is where orange became a color to represent Halloween.

Halloween costume ideas for a 12 year old?

User Avatar
hello I am also a 12 year old girl and I am going trick or treating as a bumble bee. You could be one even thought its not scary. The most common this you could go as is a witch but EVERYONE goes as a witch and you want to be unique. So I think you should go as a type of animal, like a cat or (um this is not that scary) A PENGUIN. I think their quite cool and no one else could think of going as a penguin. Well I think my first idea was the best. You should go as a bumble. Things you shouldn't go as, Witch or wizard, spider, ghost or a devil. This is because nearly everyone goes as one of those and you should want to be unique.
