Halloween has become just as much of a holiday for adults as children. Men dress in heroic and gory costumes, while women prefer Gothic or sexy outfits. If you plan to dress up for trick-or-treaters, or for a Halloween party, there are many choices to consider. Look for online costume retailers for more ideas, or to purchase costumes in time for Halloween.

If you are a plus size person, remember that there are plenty of plus size costumes available now! Check out local costume and Halloween shops and online stores. There are some really great looking costumes out there! Here are some great tips to consider when choosing a plus-sized costume.

If you want to go all out, consider visiting a costume shop locally. Ask for a sales person to recommend make-up, prosthetic limbs, wigs, hats, canes, and fangs. These are also great places to get costume accessories such as fish net stockings for the ladies, and props like weapons and skulls for the guys.

If you sew, there are plenty of costume patterns available online and in sewing shops. You can save money by making your own costumes, which are often more creative than the store-bought brands.
