Halloween Costumes Tips To Win Any Halloween Contest!

Have you ever partaken in a Halloween contest before or just wondered what exactly do they judge a Halloween Costume on to even stand a ghost of a chance in being a top pick?Well every year on Hallows Eve monsters,ghouls and creepers of the night come from all over to an auspicious nightly event to be judged on whose top freak this Halloween.

Halloween Judges usually decide on...

Popularity - Win the crowd over with a costume they can relate to or seen from a popular media source (movies,magazines,online,etc.) to get their attention in any Halloween Contest.

Appeal - Fellas I don’t know how to tell you this but,we are at disadvantage here when it comes to appeal. Ladies naturally have us beat here in crowd appeal, so all I can say is do your best in other categories guys.

Authenticity - The more realistic you act in your costume, the more the crowd won’t get enough of, it’s that simple.

Complexity - How complex your outfit is, might do you more harm than good at times you'd be surprise how many times cute & simple beats an expensive full-blown outfit with top-notch materials,realistic sounds coming out of it, or even costume lighting adding visual effects.

Halloween Costume Ideas -

For the Fellas -

Choosing the right Halloween Costume to get a chance at the top for any Halloween Contest is never a sure thing. Always decide on an outfit you're completely comfortable in, people don’t look too kindly on an uncomfortable,unfit outfit.

If your approach is to look dashing this Halloween with a popular costume to entice the audience then more power to you guys.Crowd’s love self-confidence, knowing you have the guts to stand in front of a live audience with bravado behind ya, speaks for itself.

For the Ladies -

Ladies just love to hit Halloween with cute outfits of adorable mythical creatures or lovely versions of traditional creatures of the night. A crowd can’t help but love the Femme Fatal appealing,only Halloween sexy costumes bring, it just deviates from the boring norm traditional costumes are known for in Halloween.

The more lovely,sexy the outfit is for you, others will also chime in to compliment over how your ensemble matches you in more ways then one.If you know your strengths to decide on that perfect costume that works on you,then play to those strengths let others see what you see,they will love it.

Happy Halloween Everyone & Spook it up this year for that Halloween Contest!

I love the funny ones. My friend and his wife dressed up as crash dummies one year. What a hit. Another two friends(guys) appeared as Joan Crawford and Betty Davis. Not complicated costumes, but they did it well and communicated the characters. I go trick or treating with my nephews in just my regular face. Thanks for the article Jacob.

I find the simple, understandable costumes effective as well. Choosing a theme or topic that is obscure and that most people wouldn't "get" will lead to a lot of these "what are you dressed up as?" which can always be very awkward, in particular if you have dedicated a lot of time to it.

Couldn't have put it better myself Kyle, judged a few local Halloween Contests in my home state of Texas figured it helped to know & learn what works for not just the audience but to the one adorning the costume as well. Thank You For the Comment, Kyle

It is just that people find it difficult to relate to any form of complexity. Simple outfits are liked by majority.
