What are some great Halloween costume ideas for adults?
Here are our top picks:
- You can't go wrong with a witch costume. It's classic and timeless, so you'll always be able to wear it again. Plus, it's fun to play around with different looks—you can get as elaborate or simple as you want.
- A zombie costume will make a statement without being too scary (unless you want it to be!). If you're looking for something more subtle, try adding a little blood and dirt smears to your everyday clothes.
- If you love cats, a cat costume might be just what you need. You can also get creative by dressing up like one of your favourite animals from books or movies—just make sure it isn't too scary for any kids who might see you out trick-or-treating on Halloween night!
- A devil costume doesn’t sound bad either. You can go with the classic red and black, or bust out a more modern take on it. Either way, this is an easy costume that will impress your friends.
How to decorate a venue for my Halloween party?
Here are some tips for spooking up your space:
- Set up a haunted house in the back room if your venue has one. If you have any actor friends or guests who’d like to act scary at your Halloween event this is a great spot for them to do their thing!
- Get some fake cobwebs and spider webs and hang them around the place. You can also use string lights or even plain white lights to create an eerie glow that'll make everyone feel like they're in an episode of Stranger Things.
- Buy some fake skeletons or skulls and display them around the venue, so it looks like something is lurking around every corner.
- If you want to go all out, you could try making your own tombstones out of cardboard. Just remember that when people are paying money to come into your venue for Halloween, they expect a certain standard of quality—so if you're going for something more elaborate than just a few decorations on the wall, don't skimp out on things like fake blood splatters or fog machines if you want it to look truly authentic. It all depends on whether you want to go all out with your Halloween party or if you want to keep it fairly low-key.
- Have a great playlist that features plenty of Halloween classics like ‘The Monster Mash’.
