Halloween Costume & Party Ideas

Have your family looking Spooktacular for Halloween this year!

I know it is only mid August, but the fall season including Halloween is already on my mind. I think I am trying to hurry along some cooler temperatures. Halloween was always one of my favorite childhood holidays. I have so many great memories of dressing-up. I can remember the excitement of deciding and planning what I wanted to be. Some of my favorite Halloween activities include carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, making some delicious treats and listening to silly Halloween songs. Still wanting to partake fully in the holiday, my husband and I had an adult Halloween costume party at our home last October. I dressed up as a Flapper and my husband as a Gangster. Also attending our party was a Gypsy, 2 green M&M’s (one plain & one peanut), Witch, Redneck, Wet T-shirt Winner and several other interesting characters. Truly a fun evening! We already are already planning our 2nd annual party for this October.

This year, my 2 ½ year old daughter is going to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I already have her costume accessorized and ready to go. I am still deciding whether my 1 year old daughter should stay with the theme and be a lion or a scarecrow. I want to be the Wicked Witch, but my daughter doesn’t want me to be the ugly witch, but the Good (pretty) Witch. I think I would make a better Wicked Witch. :)

Selling Halloween Costumes on Ebay
Because of my love for the Halloween holiday, I try to fill my Halloween Costume/Dress-Up Category in my Ebay store with many different costumes and accessories. I LOVE selling costumes. I sell both new and used infant, child and adult costumes all year round. Many of the different costumes that I have listed include pirates, princesses wizard, firefighter, dinosaurs, and various animals. I am constantly listing new costumes, so if you need a special outfit for Halloween, a school play or a party, please check out my costumes in my Ebay store. I have a great selection at great prices.

Child Halloween Party Ideas
With my daughter being involved in Pre-School and other activities, I have been looking for party ideas. Here are some great websites that I have come across that give ideas for costumes, decorating, games, food treats, and activities.

Since I am a stay-at-home mom and we primarily live off my husband’s income and what I can bring in through the sales of my Ebay store, I am always looking for ways to make things more affordable. I found these websites to have affordable costume ideas.
