How To Get A Brilliant Costume? Top Tips From Spotlight!

Choosing a costume for a costume party or Halloween always takes careful consideration. Fortunately, you have plenty of option with our costumes range as well as our selection of beards and moustaches. So, how should you pick a Halloween or other costume? Read our comprehensive guide below to gain more insight.

What Do You Feel Most Comfortable In?

One of the most important factors is to choose a costume you are comfortable in. Needless to say, this means that your Halloween costume is close to your personal style. If you are used to wearing loose clothing, then a loose-fitting Halloween costume will be the better choice.

In addition to comfort, the weather is another important factor to take into consideration. If you expect rain, cold, or other variables that rule out certain costumes, be sure to think about this before you purchase a costume.

Which Colours Fit Me Best?

Much like the costume type you feel most comfortable in, the same can be said for costume colours. Some people have an aversion for colours such as green and orange, while others really love the bolder colours. Evidently, you have to decide for yourself which colours you are comfortable with wearing. If you eliminate certain colours, you can also eliminate certain costumes.

Can I Recycle Old Costumes?

People who love Halloween or fancy-dress parties tend to have a massive collection of costumes, only to be worn once. If you have quite the collection, it may be worth recycling one of your older costumes. For example, if you have a princess costume in your wardrobe, you could turn it into a fairy costume this year. Reduce the length of the skirt and get some additional accessories such as wings and a wand to make the costume perfect.

How To Choose A Costume Based On My Interests?

Most people choose their Halloween or fancy-dress costumes according to their interests. For men, this can include their favourite sports team, games, or even movies. Women can also benefit from these categories, but it can be more expansive such as fairy tales and the like.

Those who would like to choose a costume based on their interests, could benefit from making a list of their favourite characters, movies, TV shows, and hobbies. Then, take a look at some of the other requirements such as favourite colours, old costumes and even the clothes you are most comfortable in. You would be surprised just how much you can narrow down your costume choice.

How Much Does Budget Matter When Choosing The Winning Costume?

Many people believe they have to spend lots of money to get the most from their costume, but this is far from the truth. In fact, some of the best costumes are often homemade or adjusted with some additional accessories from the Spotlight catalogue. So, you do not have to spend loads of money on your costume to get the best option.

That being said, it is worth setting a budget for your costume beforehand. When you have many ideas, it is extremely easy to spend too much money. So, if you want to keep to a budget, be sure to set this budget beforehand.

When Should I Look For A Costume If I Don't Make One Myself?

Choosing a costume is something that requires consideration and planning, especially if you won't make it yourself. When special occasions such as Halloween are approaching, it is best to purchase your costume several weeks before Halloween. After all, Halloween is a time of year where costumes tend to sell quickly. If you want to have your favourite option from the catalogue, ordering early is certainly not a bad idea.

For fancy dress parties, there is usually more leeway in terms of purchase time. Unless the event is close to Halloween, you can get away with ordering your costume seven days beforehand. However, always make sure you have the right size, because the last thing you want is a costume that is too big or too small a few days before the event is to take place. Last-minute decisions can ruin a costume, so a bit of planning is never a bad idea.
