Since the long history of Halloween, people have been going from door to door for food from their neighbors. With the Gaelic influence of Samhain’s guising tradition, people had started wearing costumes. Nowadays, people wear all sorts of costumes ranging from futuristic eras to the Renaissance Era, or dinosaurs, food, superheroes, or even furniture. It would be a little hard to move around as furniture though.
The great thing about Halloween costumes is that you can either make them yourself or buy them, and your imagination is one of your only limits for a costume. You can have googly eyes everywhere, or no eyes, but fabric thin enough to see through. You can have five heads, or go as a headless person holding their own head. You can pair up with another person and you can both be half an animal, or you can be the whole animal. You can dress up as a famous figure, either from history or the present, or choose to be a person very few people know about. You could even go as the character Ernest P. Worrell. Whatever your interest, whatever your style, whatever your sense of humor, there will always be a costume out there for you.
If you fancy being anonymous on your Halloween party, perhaps one of the mascot costumes below will be perfect for you.
Here is something you don’t see often enough, someone actually dressing up as the Easter Bunny on Halloween. That’s a fun bit of holiday dissonance for you. You’re walking down the street dressed as a Klingon and all of a sudden you turn the corner and there’s the Easter Bunny walking towards you.
Or, if you decide to dress up as the Easter Bunny mascot, why not get your friends to represent the other holidays? Get a turkey, Santa, Father Time, and a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day and you’re all set.
It seems that the people who don’t live near crocodiles seem to be the ones who are the most fascinated and, at the same time, the most fearful of them while those who live near them on a daily basis get used to them and know what to expect when they are near one, even though crocodiles mostly live in saltwater habitats. Show your love for crocodiles by dressing as a crocodile mascot and share your knowledge with those around you.
If you’re just a teddy bear at heart, why not show it by dressing up as an actual teddy bear mascot. For those curious about the origin of teddy bears, they were named after President Theodore Roosevelt after a hunting trip in the fall of 1902.
Teddy Roosevelt was known as a big game hunter, and after a fellow hunter tied a bear to a tree, he refused to shoot the bear stating that it would be unsportsmanlike to do so. A couple who made stuffed animals had seen the article that journalists had written and decided to create a toy bear and name it after President Teddy Roosevelt.
While it may not be the time of year for fireworks in the summer, it isn’t even summer anymore in the northern hemisphere, you can still show who your love for the US by dressing as an Uncle Sam parade mascot. For those who might not have noticed, and there are those who haven’t, the initials in Uncle Sam are the same as the United States. As for the last letter, A, who knows what his surname is. Since the United States has always been a blend of different cultures, languages and people, the perfect surname for Uncle Sam would be A’Human.
What snowman is this? May it be Frosty or Olaf, a snowman costume is one of the best ways to remind people that winter is coming while celebrating Halloween. Making a snowman is relatively easy to do, just make sure you have what you need to use for the eyes, nose and mouth.
Grab your twig arms and carrot nose and join the vast array of dinosaurs, astronauts, cavemen and ladybugs going door to door for candy. Just make sure to stay away from fireplaces because, unless you find an ice queen, you are going to melt.
A lot of people love horses and own a horse. But there are people who are horse lovers, but they either can’t afford the upkeep of a horse, or they are allergic to horse, or don’t want the responsibility of owning a horse. But hey, look who's coming! None of those will stop someone from dressing as Henry the Horse for Halloween with this mascot costume!
