Five months more to go before Halloween. And I have some Halloween costume ideas in mind. No more scary costume but sexy or funny mummy costume. I can’t imagine Superman, Spiderman and even Ironman wearing Halloween costume with Halloween costume accessories, theatrical makeup and Halloween mask.

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. It was first celebrated in Ireland and Scotland. Halloween has its origin in the Ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. The term Halloween is shortened from all-hallow-even, as it is the eve of “All Hallows’ Day”, which is now also known as All Saints’ Day. Black and orange are the traditional colors of Halloween. There are several games traditionally associated with Halloween parties. Kids have always worn masks and Halloween, but costumes became cool in the 1950’s and have been part of Halloween since then. Instead of saying trick or treat kids in Scotland say, The sky is blue, the grass is green, may we have our Halloween?” The telling of ghost stories and viewing of horror films are common fixtures of Halloween parties. Episodes of TV series and specials with Halloween themes are usually aired or a horror movie will be shown on or before the holiday. While visiting a haunted attraction like a haunted house or hayride are other Halloween practices. One custom which persists in modern-day day Ireland is the baking of a barmbrack which is a light fruit cake into which a plain ring is placed before baking. It is said that those who get the ring will find their true love in the ensuing year.

In celebrating Halloween, has a lot of Halloween stuff to offer. They have selection of funny but fantastic Halloween costumes for adults, teens, kids, toddlers, babies and even for pets. They also offer thousands of Halloween accessories such as costume accessories, theatrical makeup, masks, pumpkin carving and trick or treating.

And there is a secret HAUNTED HOUSE backdoor that you can get a great discount. Just go to the homepage halfway down on the right and click the brown comma on the slogan "Our store now has 8,000 masquerade items for you to choose from!" to enter the HAUNTED HOUSE.
