Adult costumes for Halloween celebrations and other costume events need not be expensive to make. Many adults have art and craft skills to make their own Halloween or special events costume. Hand or machine stitching, glue, and paste are the basic fasteners. Props and accessories may be made, borrowed, or purchased. Creativity and imagination are the magic ingredients.
Tap your talents and skills to imagine and make the costume of your choosing.
The most time-consuming step of costume preparation is deciding what to wear. Once decided, completing the rest of the design is easy and fast.
Are you confused or undecided? I recommend looking at books, magazines, and other alternative sources of visual aids to spark your creativity and imagination. Do not copy every detail.
An original costume is a one-of-a- kind fantasy. The mask disguises the wearer and provides fun for others to guess their identity.
