Selecting a Halloween Costume for 2016
When it comes time to pick a costume for Halloween, I always have the worst time making up my mind. First, I have to decide if I want to buy a Halloween costume or make a Halloween costume. And that is the easy part! Once I know that, I have to decide what I want to go as for Halloween.
I usually ask myself if I want to go with a traditional costume, like a witch or vampire, or if I want to go with something new and current, like a Hunger Games costume or Avengers costume. The truth is that it really depends on what mood I am in when I start shopping for Halloween costumes. I bet you are the same!
This year, I have decided that my family will be buying Halloween costumes. I have selected some of the top costumes that we are considering and placing them here. They might help you pick a costume for Halloween – and if not, maybe you can help me pick a costume!

Buying Halloween Costumes: Where To Shop for Halloween Costumes
You have a lot of options when it comes to places that offer Halloween costumes for sale. In my local area, there are costumes available at mass merchandisers (like Wal-Mart and Target), specialty stores like Hot Topic and Spencer’s, and Halloween-specific stores. The Halloween-specific stores usually pop-up in or around the mall a month or two before Halloween. I’m sure the same options are available in your local area too.
Personally, I prefer to do my Halloween costume shopping online. I think that is the best option because it offers the widest variety and it also means that you can easily compare prices to ensure that you get the cheapest price on your Halloween costumes. Now, some of you might not be on a budget like me, but I always factor costume cost into buying my Halloween costume.
Places to buy Halloween costumes online include Amazon.com, HotTopic.com, SpiritHalloween.com, CostumeKingdom.com, and CostumeCraze.com (just to name a few).
In the past, I’ve used both Amazon.com and SpiritHalloween.com with no problems.
Where To Buy Best & Cheapest Last Minute Halloween Costumes
Halloween is just around the corner, which means everyone will be after Halloween costumes for their halloween parties! Do you have your Halloween costume yet? If not, you don’t have to panic and rush out to Wal-Mart and buy whatever you can find. And trust me when I tell you that you won’t find a lot you like shopping at local retailers this close to Halloween. Nope. It’s not pretty. Lots of odd sizes and costumes that are just terrible – you know, the ones that were left for a reason.
But not to worry, you can get some really awesome last minute Halloween costumes by shopping online. And – they will get delivered to you in time for Halloween or the weekend Halloween party you’re going to.
So, if you’re ready to buy your last minute Halloween costume, listen up…
Buying Last Minute Halloween Costumes
I think the best place to buy a good, but cheap Halloween costume at the last minute is Amazon. They have the lowest prices, free shipping, no sales tax and an EASY return policy (y’know, if you don’t like what you order or find something better later)

Halloween Costumes For Pets?
For me, all of the holidays in the fall are my favorite. This is partly because fall is my favorite season because it makes me think of things like pumpkin spice lattes, getting together with the family, and holidays with friends and family. And of course, the best thing about Halloween is getting to dress up!
Selecting a Halloween costume to buy or make each year is a decision that I take very seriously. I try to not duplicate anything that I have worn in the past and I try to pick something that will not be worn by everyone else at any Halloween parties that I might be attending. Often, my Halloween costumes are pop culture related, but sometimes the old favorites win out. For 2016, here are some of the top Halloween costumes available.
