Go Back in Time

The history of modern-day Halloween is often traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts believed that on October 31, the world of the living and the world of the dead were thinnest and spirits could cross freely between both worlds. 

Today, people dress up in costumes during all months of the year as a way to bring excitement into their lives while simultaneously being creative with their attire.

Add Some Meaning

With all of the different types of costumes out there, you can have a hard time finding what you want. Luckily, with a few quick alterations, you’ll be able to personalize any dress and make it perfect for your costume.

Make it Accessorized

Accessorizing is a quick and easy way to customize your dress. If you don’t want to go the DIY route, there are plenty of accessories available in stores. Here are some ways to accessorize your costume: 

  • A sash or belt can be used as a headband or hair tie if you have long hair. 
  • Jewelry is a great way to add some flare with hoops, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. 
  • If you’re dressed as a witch, adding some face paint or glittery makeup will really set the look off. 
  • A scarf can be wrapped around the waist for an accent color that doesn’t clash with the rest of the costume.

Upgrade a Trendy Outfit

For years, people have been customizing their outfits with DIY accessories, but this year I think it’s time we take a look at the dresses themselves. One way you could get that celebrity look is by customizing your dress with your favorite trends.
