Dyeing your skin green as part of a Halloween Costume may sound a bit weird. But trust me, I have done it dozens of times with no ill effects (at least that I have noticed). And having green skin definitely makes your costume more interesting and gets attention.
Why green you ask? I have tried other colors, but green looks especially strange and exotic. And green skin lends itself to lots of Halloween costumes. Witches and Vampires with green skin are scarier and of course all alien costumes will benefit from green skin- E.T. anyone?
Here are some other costume ideas that are good with green skin:
Jolly Green Giant – just create a over-the-shoulder one piece, and add some artificial (or real) leaves with glue.
Green Man – Include leaves and other natural items on your costume and carry a wooden staff.
Peas in a Pod – Green skin, green outfit, and green balloons glued down the front of your chest 0r back.
The best costumes for this shows off some of your green body. People will often ask, “Are you green…all over?” You just wink and smile.
You will need one large bottle of liquid green vegetable dye (food coloring). (Do not use fabric dye which is toxic).
Stand in the shower or bath tub. It is a good idea to have some water in the bottom of the shower or bath so that it dilutes the dye. Food dye sometimes can stain tiles, although it can be scrubbed off easily.
Mix some green dye with 16 ounces of water in a bowl. Start with a small amount of dye (about an ounce0 and add more after you try it on your skin to get the effect you are looking for. You can put the dye everywhere, it has never irritated anyone that I know of, but of course you don’t need it in places that no one will see.
After the dye is everywhere that you want it, let it dry by itself as much as possible. You can pat it with paper towels to speed the process.
Although my friends and I have done this dozens of times, I obviously am not assuming any liability. Try this at your own risk!
Almost all the green color can be washed off your skin with soap and a good scrubbing with a washcloth, but a little may remain in creases etc. It may take a couple of more showers to be completely gone.
The dye will remain in your hair longer that it will on your skin. Of course, depending on your age, this is a very popular look.
Your bedsheets will be green and possibly ruined if you go to bed before you wash most of the green off. On the other hand, waking up with someone green can be interesting.
Halloween can be so fun!
Try being green. Once you do, you may want to make it a habit. You’ve been warned.
Oh, and red hair looks especially great with green skin!

It is not difficult to come up with a creative Halloween costume idea, if you know where to look for inspiration. Fortunately, the world around you is full of ideas, ripe for the picking. With a little imagination, you can use a film character, a newsworthy event or a popular game as a starting point to find a look that can be uniquely yours.
If you enjoy watching movies, then surely you can remember a film that had a character in it that you would like to impersonate. Choose a popular, current movie and everyone will recognize you. 2015 was the year of the superhero movie and there are lots of great choices for characters from Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers, Captain America, Green Lantern, Batman, Thor, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, Green Hornet and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Vampires are always popular and were featured in the Twilight movies, Fright Night, as well as the immensely popular True Blood TV series.
Especially for children, animated movies like Cinderella, Inside Out, Teenage Mutual Ninja Turtles, Disney’s Frozen, and Hop are a great source of fun characters, although there are plenty of ways adults could get in on the fun as well.
Of course, transforming yourself into a pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean is always a good time and easy to pull off. Just brush up on your “pirate slang” matey and you are well on your way. And don’t forget the sword.

I enjoyed this costume thoroughly, as did everyone else!

Cast of ABC's "Modern Family" got spooky for Halloween
Dressing up in an outrageous or ingenious costume is one of the things that makes Halloween so much fun. And the celebrities of film, television and sports are often on the cutting edge of Halloween costume chic. With unlimited budgets and fashion designers on call, the stars often come up with amazing Halloween costumes. This creates lots of media attention and we get to enjoy the photos.
2010 was a truly banner year of exciting and interesting costumes. The costume designers seem to come up more terrific new costumes each year. You don’t have to wait until next Halloween to dress up either. Any time is a good time to host a costume party!
Costume parties are, to me, more fun than any other kind of party. People just naturally seem to be in a more social mood when they have the freedom to behave a bit outside of their usual comfort zone. They seem less worried about what others think of them and more willing to take a risk and say or do something funny or crazy. Also, there is the obvious conversation starter around the costumes.
I like to pick a costume that has a great answer to the standard question, “What are you supposed to be?” Of course, if you chose to be something obvious; a pirate, a clown, a vampire, you may not get that question. That’s why even if you are dressing in a easily discernible costume, it is nice to add some clever twist.
Some costumes are designed to provide a hilarious answer to the “What are you supposed to be?” question. I call these costumes “punny costumes” and they are a surefire way to get the conversation going. Here are a few examples.

Wear a Little Red Riding Hood Costume. Using fake scars, plastic wounds and fake blood, make it look like the Big Bad Wolf already got you. Don’t forget your basket of goodies.
One Night Stand Halloween Costume
Use a large box, cut a hole out of the bottom for your head to emerge through. Cut the box down so that it is 4-5 inches deep and sits on your shoulders. This is your nightstand top. Using glue, cover the box with a checkered tablecloth. Glue items to the nightstand such as two plastic champagne glasses, nylon stockings, an ashtray with smoked cigarettes, condoms, candles, and an alarm clock. Wear a lampshade on your head.
“Chip”-monk Halloween Costume
First dress up in a Monk costume. Glue potato chip bags, corn chip bags and tortilla chip bags all over your costume.
Cereal Killer Halloween Costume
Wear a black outfit. Attach with glue, in various places, 10-15 empty minature cereal boxes. Using a knife, puncture the front of each box and tear it out from the center to the edges, make a number of tears so that you can peel it back a little. Add fake blood to the edges of the torn parts of the boxes, so they have obviously been “killed”
Hell in a Hand Basket
Wear a devil costume. Purchase a large wicker laundry basket and cut out the bottom so that you can wear it around your waist. You can use suspenders to keep it up, or cut it to fit closely on your waist and pad the opening with duct tape.
Hell on Wheels Halloween Costume
Wear a devil costume and roller blades or roller skates. Or use a wheelchair.
Your chance to be imaginative is one of the things that distiguishes Halloween from most other holidays in the U.S.
A quick look at the top Halloween costume web sites informs us that sexy is in for Halloween. If you’ve seen my previous post, Halloween-costumes-sexy-sexier-sexiest, then you know that sexy Halloween costumes for women is huge, with revealing costumes in every category.
Costumes designers have clearly not left the men out of the sexy category this year. In fact there are more ways to be clever and sexy, scary and sexy or even funny and sexy than ever before.
A couple of examples of the scary and sexy category, are the sexy, Sinister Devil outfit, and the Ironman II Whiplash costume.

Or, you can create the caveman look (add a Geico sign for the misunderstood caveman version)
When I was a kid, most of our Halloween Costumes were homemade. The stores had very few costumes that were interesting to me and there were no online stores back then. Also, our needs were simpler than today.
We usually didn’t stretch our imaginations past the pretty obvious in the way of costumes. I was often a Hobo (old, worn-out, torn clothes, some dirt on my face, and an old pillowcase slung on a stick), a Pirate (mom’s kerchief on my head, my dad’s old shirt and an eye patch), or perhaps a vampire (white shirt, black pants, black cape, white makeup, and plastic fangs that hurt my mouth and constantly fell out.)
In contrast, children’s costume offerings in Halloween stores and online today are staggering in both number of choices and diversity. There seems to be a costume to fit almost every child’s dream, and in every size. Today’s size categories now include toddler, child, pre-teen, teen and tween!
The following costumes can all be purchased for less than $20.00 and your kid is sure to look great!
Here are some more great cosutmes, also under $20.00. We’ve got dozens of more choices as well, for your child, teen or tween. (more…)
Here are 7 Halloween costumes that you can make yourself in about half an hour, mostly with items you likely already have around the house. Got invited to a Halloween Party at the last minute? Whip up one of these clever costumes.
Static Cling Halloween Costume
To start the look, wear any kind of mismatched clothes. Fold one tail of your blouse or shirt up onto itself and secure with double stick tape or a safety pin. Pull up one pant leg and pin in place. Using double stick tape or pins, attach a few dryer sheets to your clothes. Also attach socks, small towels, handkerchiefs, pillow cases, underwear and other small items one might have in the dryer. Use hair gel to make your hair stick up like it is full of static.
Deviled Egg Halloween Costume
Wear all white clothes. Paint a yellow circle on your stomach, or cut out a yellow circle out of felt or construction paper and attach with double stick tape, glue or safety pins. Wear devil horns and carry a pitchfork to complete the devil look.
Melanie Daniels, from Alfred Hitchcock’s, “The Birds” Halloween Costume
Wear an old blue dress and a blonde wig. Glue or tape fake birds (available from a craft store) pecking you all over. Wear an old pair of cracked glasses. Tease your hair and add scratches and blood dripping from where birds are pecking you. (more…)
Vampires suck our blood. These night-dwelling creatures hide in the shadows and pounce on unsuspecting victims, draining their blood and killing them. So why do so many of us want to be Vampires on Halloween?
Ever since the movie Draculawas released in 1931, Vampires have taken the popular culture by storm. What is it about Vampires that make them cool? Is it their powers? Or perhaps it is their clothes. Even back in the 30’s Count Dracula was a very natty dresser.
Whatever the reason, being a creature of the night on Halloween is great fun.Â And this year with the very popular Twilight Movies and HBO’s True Blood, there are more choices then ever before.
This Halloween, your vampire costume can be scary, sexy, elegant, funny, witty, or blood curdling. You can dress in Gothic Vampire threads, Edwardian Vampire clothes, or sport a Victorian Vampire look.
There are Vampire Halloween Costumes for men, women, children and even pets. And they come in lots of sizes and at every price range.
Here is a small sampling of what is available this Halloween.
Okay, not really, but we love them and want to keep them safe. This can be more of a challenge on Halloween because of the increased comings and goings of strangers in our yards (smelling like candy too!) and the increases in pet unfriendly treats and decorations.Â Special care needs to be exercised to keep our pets safe during our Halloween celebrations.

Babies don’t know they are wearing a costume
We all realize that babies are too young to understand the Halloween dress-up thing. They do recognize however that the adults are all smiling and laughing when they look at them. And that feels good. It is nice to feel appreciated and babies are happy to soak in all that love and attention.
