Halloween Costume Shopping Tips
Here are a few things to take into consideration so that you can find a costume to match your style.
- Fun versus Flirty. The most important thing to decide when shopping for a costume is the look you want to go for.
- If you want to go for comedic effect, look for costumes designated as Fun in the table above.
- If you want to go for something more body conscious and feminine, take a peek at the Flirty options instead.
- Price, Quality and Reusability. Most of us never want to use the same costume twice, but if you do, then you might want to invest in something a bit higher in quality (and therefore with a higher price tag).
- Generally speaking, the cheapest costumes will be either very simple in design or assembled with less expensive fabric and stitching. If you plan to wear your costume once, you can find great options for very little money.
- If you’re looking for a costume you can wear multiple times, you should consider spending more on a garment that is well constructed and reusable. That way you can wear it to multiple Halloween parties during the season, then wash it and put it in storage until the following year.
Top 3 Best Female Halloween Costumes Reviews
This glow in the dark skeleton suit by Leg Avenue is by far one of the best female Halloween costumes available. It’s a perfect outfit to wear on its own, or you can use it as a base to build a more elaborate skeleton costume with makeup and accessories.
The material is made from 90% Nylon, with 10% Spandex for stretch and a comfortable fit. The base of the costume is black fabric. The front of the torso, arms and legs feature realistic bones, whereas the backside is plain fabric.
The bones in the costume glow in the dark. All you need to do is lay the costume out in your bedroom, living room, or anywhere else with the lights on so it can “charge”. You can do this while you get ready – say, while you’re doing your hair and makeup. Once you don the costume, flip the lights off for a moment to check that the costume has received enough light to glow in the dark. It should glow really bright, ensuring you’ll be a hit at any event you go to!
The great thing about this costume is that its flattering to all body types, and depending on how you wear it, you can look either totally fun or drop dead sexy – or both! It is body conscious and will hug your curves in all the right places. It will even support your chest and hip areas without pinching or being uncomfortably tight. Whether you are super skinny or voluptuous, you don’t need to worry that this bodysuit will make you look anything but your best.
If you will be out in the cold on Halloween, don’t worry – you can wear a turtleneck and leggings underneath this costume with no issue. If you live in a warm climate, you can certainly wear this costume on its own. Just make sure that you wear dark underwear underneath, as you don’t want anything bright or white peeking through the black bodysuit.
If you’re looking for a great quality costume that will turn heads in a good way and keep you feeling comfortable, this glow in the dark skeleton is an amazing option. The best part is that you can hand wash it, store it, and use it again and again each Halloween, whether you prefer trick or treating, parties, or both.
If you want to go for a much sexier look for a Halloween night at home with your partner, the Working Girl Slip by Dreamgirl is a fun and flattering option. Since this is just the top portion of the costume, you’ll need to purchase a skirt or pants separately in order to complete the outfit!
This costume consists of a striped button down vest with a deep V-neck to showcase your neckline. The vest is 100% Polyester and has stretch for a comfortable fit. The deep neckline is lined with a chiffon collar, giving the whole bodice an air of a double-breasted suit with a white collared shirt peeking out. There is also an adjustable waist belt to ensure a snug fit around your waistline.
The bodice of the costume attaches to pull up stockings via black garter straps. Perhaps the best touch is in the back of the costume, where there is a white chiffon ruffle that accents anyone’s rear end in a cute and flattering way.
This costume includes a pair of plastic eyeglass frames, without lenses, as well as a pinstripe thong to complete the look.
For a really fun costume that will get lots of laughs and accolades from friends, family, or coworkers, look no further than this Bumble Bee costume.
The costume features an adorable striped yellow and black bodice made from 100% Polyester. It can be worn as is or lightly stuffed if you want an exaggerated shape. It’s loose enough that you can wear a long sleeved black shirt underneath to keep warm in cooler Halloween weather. You can also wear a pair of black leggings or stockings underneath.
The jumpsuit has a pair of black wings attached to each shoulder. It also has a black bee stinger attached to the rear end of the bodice. Here is an insider tip – if you want to make the mesh wings and bee stinger more rigid so they stand up more, simply spray them with starch.
To complement the jumpsuit, this costume comes with a hat with two black antennas attached to it. Adorable, right?
If you are looking for comfort, you won’t find a better costume. The bodice is designed to fit all body types. It has one elasticated hole in the torso, which fits over both legs like a skirt. You then tie the bib closure at the shoulders to keep the bodice snug to your torso. It’s a guaranteed great fit for anybody, whether you are small or large in stature. The hood component is stretchy to accommodate different head shapes and ties underneath the chin.
In addition to being appropriate for many Halloween occasions, this costume is totally reusable. So long as you hand wash it with care when necessary, you can store it and wear it again next year – or pass it along to a friend or family member for continued use.
