You probably have a tux hanging in your closet. It has probably been there for years waiting for the right occasion for it to be worn. Well, you could use it for Halloween and add accessories to make it look like a real costume. Wear a black top hat on your head.

You can also wear a cape and fangs with your tux to look like a vampire. Use a black cane to accentuate. You can also wear white make up if you are dressing as a vampire, or place a fake moustache to give an air of aristocracy. Ask older relatives who may have some old outfits from the 60s. Choose a tie-dye shirt to produce that authentic hippy look. Look for bell bottom jeans from your mom or grandparents box of old clothes. Visit a vintage clothing store if you cannot find 60s clothes from your relatives closets.

Accessorize your hippy 60s clothes with peace sign jewellery. If you cannot find peace sign accessories you can simply paint a peace sign on your cheek. Wear an afro wig or long hear and tie a colorful bandana on your forehead. Boost the look with an attitude. Hold up your index finger and middle finger to form a V that symbolizes peace.

If you are dressing up as a couple for a party, you do not have to buy anything at all. You can simply switch outfits. You can wear your boyfriend or husbands clothes and your partner can wear your dress and heels. Make him wear a woman's wig and lipstick. You can draw a moustache with some eyeliner.

An easy to make toddler costume is a Hobo outfit. Get a very old shirt from an older sibling. Tear some holes in the shirt. Your toddler can wear old worn out shoes. Make the shoes look dirty and unwashed. Bore a hole in one tip so his toe sticks out. Mess up his or her hair and make sure it stays messy by putting a little hair spray.

Teens may want to look like the latest radical celebrity. The more radical the artist or celebrity looks the better. Search for a picture of that artist in magazines or online and copy the make-up, hair do, and outfit. Do not forget to accessorize with something the artist is known for which could be a musical instrument.

If you do not have the time to make your own Halloween costumes, Canada or US costume stores should have online websites were you can buy them. You can find hundreds if not thousands of outfits to choose from. These are also suitable for ordinary costume parties and not just for Halloween.
