Windy City Novelties Costume Spotlight: Horror Costumes

Some of the very first Halloween celebrations in America consisted of dressing in a scary costume, telling ghost stories and participating in other mischievous activities. This Halloween, stick with one of the the age-old traditions of the holiday by dressing in a classic and spooky horror costume! Have your children dress as a witch or a ghost, while you and your significant other go as the evil characters from some of America’s favorite horror films. You can also create your own horror costumes with creepy masks and accessories. Here is a guide to Windy City Novelties’ Horror Costumes:


Ghost Costumes

Scare trick-or-treaters this Halloween when answering the door in an all-white ghost costume! Choose from a variety of different costumes, such as a friendly ghost costume from a different era, or the evil Stay Puft Marshmallow Man ghost from the Ghostbusters movie. Don’t forget to add white or gray face paint to your face and other visible body parts to look like a real ghost!
