If you want to get frightfully creative with costumes this Halloween, head to GasLamp, where you’ll find styles for the ultimate costume party. As your Halloween guests head up your pathway, you will shiver with excitement about showing them your threads.
A boo-tiful array of costumes will get the hostess and the kiddos into the seasonal spirit. Throwing a costume party isn’t hard; I host one every year. My staples include a black-and-white striped satin tablecloth, a large Day of the Dead figure and vinyl bats that I stick across the walls in a flight pattern.
Are you looking for a Halloween costume idea for a woman? Look no further. With this showstopping costume, the party’s hostess can get fiercely attired as a gladiator ($22.95; size medium; Booth B-210). Fashioned from crinkle-foil lamé, the dress features an elaborate sequin “warrior neckline” (because bronze breastplates are heavy, hon). A faux vinyl corset with boning cinches the waist, which is 100-percent flattering, and the skirt is trimmed in a Greek keyhole pattern. A sheer chiffon cape punctuates this unique ensemble.
NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG
If you seek kids’ Halloween costume ideas, then this hound dog costume is paw-fect for you($7.95; size XS; Booth B-210). Shades of caramel, chocolate and cream amount to a natural-looking coat of fur on this one-piece hound dog costume designed with a tail and floppy ears. What a cozy costume for some lucky little boy or girl – just add some brown mittens when he or she ventures into the cold for trick-or-treating.
Dress up your little one as a cuddly lamb in this costume that fits sizes 2T to 4T ($18.95; Booth B-210). The faux fur is thick and warm for those cool Halloween nights, and the little white ears are trimmed in pink. The lamb-shaped applique on the chest features a pink bow on the lamb’s neck so that this costume would be perfect for some cute little girl.
Boasting supremely soft fur, this adorable giraffe costume in a size 4T brings whimsy to the party ($14.95; Booth B-210). Attention to detail infuses this clever costume, which includes a three-dimensional giraffe face and an easy-to-manage zip-up front.
The Halloween assortment at GasLamp is a hodgepodge of everything from the rare to the handmade to the laughably whimsical. You can get frightfully creative for your Halloween costume party with the delightful choices at GasLamp.
