Costumes, Halloween And Magic

Before you know it, one of the most mystical and magical times of the year will be here. There are so many things to look forward to this time of year, but one simply amazing combination is that of costumes, Halloween and magic.

Halloween is a somewhat magical time of year all by itself. You can transform yourself into just about anyone or anything with enough imagination.

Part of the charm, appeal and allure of Halloween is simply the mystique of Halloween night. Halloween night comes with the anticipation of unexpected sights and sounds, the underlying feeling of being on the edge, and just waiting for something to come along to scare, amuse or entertain us.

There are plenty of things out there to try and scare us like haunted houses and horror movies.

There are lots of parties where there is plenty of bizarre foods, possibly decorated with assorted "body parts," and certainly things you wouldn't otherwise eat or drink on a typical day.

There are also things to entertain us, such as some great magical tricks that get attention and have entertained us for decades.

Remembering a Halloween night so long ago, on October 31, 1926, Harry Houdini, one of the most famous magicians of all time, died. It is still an eerie coincidence that it was Halloween night when he left this world and crossed over to the other side. He promised to come back, if at all possible, so you can well imagine that there are those trying to make contact with this great magician each and every Halloween night. It should come as no surprise that one of the most popular costume ideas on Halloween is that of a magician.

Since Houdini's time and possibly before, there has always been something that naturally draws us to magic and magic tricks, especially on Halloween. Once again, there is a strong curiosity to discover the secret to magic tricks, and to try to comprehend how the magician pulled off some of those tricks. Is it really true that the hand is quicker than the eye?

Even the easiest of magic tricks can gather a crowd, and makes for a lot of fun at gatherings and parties. Take on the mystique of a magician, and you will capture the attention of just about any group of people.

This Halloween, remember that mystical combination and dazzle your friends with amazing magical tricks.

By combining costumes, Halloween and magic, all the mystique and maybe even some eeriness of Halloweens past will be at your command.

I've always liked magicians. Houdini is fascinating because he's from Appleton, Wisconsin. One day, I will tour the museum of his there!
