Halloween Costume for Non-Halloween Occasions

Costume parties are great. I think it would be fun to do Arabian Nights next. You can come in a genie costume. Belly dancers, sheiks, camels, etc. will also work. I already have a muzak playlist in mind (“Midnight at the Oasis”, “Caravanserai”, “Ojos Así”…). Before my sister got sick, we were always coming up with excuses to put on costumes. We used to throw themed birthday parties for our cousins (just small affairs with just the cousins and a fistful of close friends). One time, we did Alice in Wonderland for Cheska, another time it was Peter Pan for Luigi. I think the last one we did prior to the most recent October 31st Sale we had was Chipi’s Mexican telenovela-themed birthday party. Anyway, this proves that costumes come in handy any time of the year.

Costumes are always fun and usually relevant to creative spirits who like to make ordinary days more exciting. Go to online stores and you’ll soon start devising a way to wear a costume before Halloween. In any case, you can just go shopping for Halloween early, get several costumes and resolve to hit various parties this year. The Costume Cauldron is a great place to do your shopping. It has a secret HAUNTED HOUSE backdoor on the website that can net you a good discount. To get to this backdoor, go to the homepage halfway down on the right and click on the brown comma in the line that reads “Our Store now has over 10,000 masquerade items for you to choose from!”.
