Captain America costume

Well, I’m getting the decorations up; how about you? There’s not much time left now. Yes indeed, that frightening day where anything can occur is upon us. You’d might as well stock up on the candy and prepare for hundreds of tiny monsters, goblins, ghouls, witches, werewolves, and vampires. We all know what happens if you don’t offer them something. They could inflict a terrible wrath of destruction on you and your family. Or they could simply whimper and go tell their parents. I’m talking about trick-or-treators here; not real demons. Although I did read that the treats were originally given out as some sort of offering in the hopes of being spared any harm. Hmm, that’s interesting indeed. Anyway, have you tried on your new costume yet? Maybe it’s an outstanding captain America costume this year.

I actually spotted a captain America costume a few years back when I was squeezing through the Halloween crowd on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. To my surprise it was on a sorority girl, not a guy. It was probably the greatest captain America costume I had ever seen. She wore it well my friends. And so can you if you find the right place to shop for your truly unique captain America costume. I on the other hand must go out into the dark and scary night as something much more menacing. Or at least menacing looking. I always like to offer the trick-or-treators a spooky experience when they come a knocking on my door. That’s the way it should be done on Halloween. This night of October 31st should be utterly filled with terrifying costumes and massive loads of candy.

Aside from a snazzy captain America costume, what else do you suppose is imperative in your Halloween experience? I think a dazzling array of props; lights and decorations are in order. Make those little tikes want to come to your door. Don’t you recall how fun and exhilarating this was as a child? I deck my home out more on Halloween than any other holiday. It’s a blast stringing spider webs and hanging bats. The motion detectors are essential now days. This way when someone approaches your door, they’re startled by a frightening voice and some eerie sounds. Get on the web and search for that captain America costume and all sorts of other Halloween goodies to make this October 31st outstanding.

Online Halloween Costume Shops

Halloween is definitely my favorite of all the holidays. I like the costumes and the candy, but I like the “fun” of the holiday – it’s the collective spirit of fun and silliness of Halloween that endears it so much to me. I love Halloween costume shops and could spend much longer browsing the various costumes than most people, I suppose.

But you might not be like me. Halloween costume shops are notoriously untidy and often woefully under stocked. Navigating through Halloween costume shops is difficult at best, and if you’ve waited until the week before, best of luck. Most Halloween costume shops are only seasonal – that is, they are only open a month or two before Halloween. What’s worse is that it’s hard enough to find one – what if that one shop doesn’t have what you’re looking for? You might end up picking out something you didn’t really want, simply because who wants to go through Halloween without a costume?

This problem has a solution: online Halloween costume shops. Searching through these Halloween costume web sites has an obvious number of benefits that a physical store simply doesn’t. First of all, while items sell out of stock from web sites, they do a much better job of keeping costumes in stock. We can all agree it’s much easier to find a particular costume on a web site than in a cluttered store with overwhelmed sales associates struggling to keep up.

Of course, there are a couple of major disadvantages to not going to one of the physical Halloween costume shops. If you are simply looking, browsing, if you will, for an idea, the shop is the way to go. This is best if you’re not sure what you want to dress up as and want to see ideas. Sure, you can do this with a web site, but invariably, you’ll miss something, simply because you don’t know you’re not looking for it. Also, online photos can be misleading, and while costume shops don’t generally allow you to, you can get away with trying a costume on before purchase. Not possible through your computer, so please don’t try.

Overall, buying a Halloween costume should not be a difficult task. There are pros and cons to both buying online or in one of the various Halloween costume shops that pop up in September and October. The only thing that really a matter, regardless of where or how you purchase your costume is gets your costume early.
