Halloween is a holiday that both adults and children love to celebrate. Preparation includes decorating your house, picking out the perfect pumpkin, and then choosing what you want to wear. Here are some ways to decide what will make the best costume for you.

Rental Costumes

Is this the year that you want to be an astronaut? Have you dreamed of impersonating Elvis? Is your goal to be a sexy pirate? If you are planning to hold or attend a Halloween party, then you will want to check out local party and costume rentals. The benefit of a rental is that you do not have to make or buy anything; the drawback is that you have to book your costume in advance. The most popular costumes - usually those from this year's Hollywood movies, or the classics - will sell out quickly. Now you also have the choice of renting online. Online rentals are available if you have four to six weeks lead-time for shipping.

Makeup Choices

If you are interested in changing your look, but rentals are not in your plans, then consider makeup and wigs available at seasonal stores. Many stores sell special effects materials and makeup that will make your costume the strangest, funniest or scariest of the party. The makeup choices are as numerous as people's creative thoughts. If you do not know what makeup or special effects materials to pick up, then stop by the local library or bookstore and pick up a makeup guide. Halloween specialty store workers also may be able to help you find the right materials from false earlobes to false chins and teeth to make your special look.

Contact Lenses

If you want your look to change completely, specialty contact lenses are now available. These lenses are available in a wide selection of colors and styles. If you are dressing up as a cat, complete the look with green cat's eye contact lenses - complete with the vertical slits. If you want the red bloodshot look, go all the way with contacts that cover more of the eye for the perfect effect.

If you are going out as your favorite pink haired anime star, compliment the look with pink contacts. These contact lenses are perfect for changing your entire look. The variety of choices has exploded over the past few years, including optical stores as well as online vendors. Check out their catalogs in advance in case you have to special order a set of lenses for that perfect purple star!

Buying a Costume

Of course, you can also purchase a costume at a Halloween seasonal store. The selection will be best when the store first opens for the season. If you need more help choosing a costume, seeing what is available for sale is a good way to jump-start your imagination. Buying a costume reduces the amount of time it takes to put together that perfect look.

Picking the perfect Halloween costume may be the best part of Halloween. If you think about what you want to be early enough, you will have all the choices you need. Trick or Treat!
