When I was growing up, Halloween was always my favorite holiday. It gave me a chance to be whoever I wanted to be for a night.
As time passed and I grew older, that feeling of fantasy never really went away. I still like to max out Halloween to infinity. But I also found there were plenty of other holidays which afforded me the chance to be whoever I wanted to be. St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras are the two biggies for costumes. But the opportunities are really endless.
How about dressing up as Santa Claus for the youngsters in our family? Or an Easter Bunny costume to help them with their egg hunts? I recently dressed up as Lucy Ricardo for a 50s retro party. The possibilities just go on and on.
I even dress up my pooch on special occasions. A little twisted, I’ll admit, but still…
However, in addition to all the great infant, children, teen AND adult costumes on the site, I’ve included a bunch of helpful information — like on face painting to get the really creepy look. You’ll find those in the “Resources” section in the right column.
