Hello, Goblins and Ghouls!
I hope you’re getting as excited for Halloween as all of us are here at Everything Summer Camp! Unlike any other holiday, Halloween is that spooky one when we read scary stories, carve pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns, and—best of all—dress ourselves up in costumes so we can look like something we're not.
If you like Halloween as much as me, you’ve probably already put some good thought into what you’ll dress up as this year. Good thing, too. You never know when a good costume is going to win you a cool contest. Like the one we’re having at Everything Summer Camp!
Step 1.) If you don’t know what you’re dressing up as for Halloween just yet—I suggest you get planning. Surprise us! Impress us! And, most of all, SCARE US! We can’t wait to see what you all have in store for us. Deciding on a costume can be tricky. Sometimes it’s the trickiest part about costuming.
But never fear—there’s a world of creepy creatures and fun costumes out there. The hardest part is usually deciding what costume will be most suitable for you.
Step 2.) Once your decision has been made, now you have something to shoot for. Look up pictures of a creature you want to dress up as, be it a clown, a vampire, a witch, or werewolf, and think of what you’ll need in order to execute the look. This is the most creative part of the process and, in my humble opinion, the most fun.
Step 3.) You’ll want to find all the different parts you’re going to need to make your costume happen. Maybe you need a wig, cape, face paint, etc.
Step 4.) Now we’re to the easiest part of costuming. Simply turn yourself into the wild, maniacal beast you decided to be and then have someone take your picture so you can show us just how good (and frightening) your costume is.
Above all else, have fun with it, boys and girls. Happy costuming and thanks for reading!
