The wind is getting chiller lately and we know for sure that the witching season is almost here! You might be invited to a Halloween Costume Party or who knows you could hold a party yourself, isn’t it exciting? In the history, Halloween Guising (disguising) is a practice in Scotland and England where kids would wear fancy dress along with their masks and visit the neighborhood door to door. They would usually perform tricks and show off their talents like singing, reciting a joke or poems. Impressed house owners would give coins or goodies as a treat. In short, guising is actually trick-or-treating too. It was considered a child event or holiday before but obviously it has become a more enjoyable activity at present because even adults are so much fond of disguising, especially on a Halloween Costume Party.
Since the Celts would let the kids wear masks of animals to keep them safe from the demon named Samhain, the masks and disguises have progressed as the year passed. Halloween is said to be the night of spirits and darkness, so lots of costumes are designed according to scary creatures associated to Halloween. The very common are Vampire Halloween Costumes, Witch Halloween Costumes, White or Black Lady Costumes, Dracula Costumes, Spirit Costumes, Skeleton Costumes , Bat Costumes and many more!
Now, here are some of the Best Halloween Costumes we’ve compiled just for you! I’ve tried to assessed them myself to be able to provide you with Top Halloween Costumes for some category.
Top 10 Scary Halloween Costumes
In random order and could be possible for both men and women. Take note that effects such as blood and cuts would make it ridiculous looking. Too much cleanliness for any of these costumes would make it less creepy. Also, props like claws, scythe and blades are prominent in the scary costumes below.
1. Decaying Mummy Costume
We know that mummies are quite famous during costume parties, but this one isn’t ordinary. Not just the usual bandage or clothe strips covered but even more gross with that decaying effect.
2. Werewolf Halloween Costume
How about a realistic mad werewolf? As what is told in the folk tales, wolves are the hungriest beast in the forest ready to harm the live stocks, hunters and campers. These wolves are usually aggressive and ready to find their prey during full moon.
3. Freddy Krueger Halloween Costume
Oh who doesn’t know Freddy? The fictional character of the Freddy’s Nightmares and until now, he claims to be everyone’s biggest night mare! That burned-melted face looks yucky because the parents of his kid victims set him to fire. A revenge-thirsty Halloween character for you!
4. Pig-Headed Slaughter Guy
With that bloody apron on, I know for sure this could be someone who slaughters pigs but I’m clueless how he’s got a pig head. Maybe he was cursed? Ahh. It doesn’t matter since Halloween is filled with tricks, magic and surprises so just expect for the unexpected characters.
5. Bloody Zombie
Holding a torn bleeding hand, who wouldn’t be afraid of this Zombie Halloween outfit? Those cuts in its face and the all white contact lenses makes it perfect.
6. Jason Voorhees Halloween costume
Where there’s Freddy, Jason should be remembered too. This fictional killer character rages its anger only from the actions of his victims. He has built a shrine of his mother’s severed head in a cabin and he will harm any intruder.
7. Frankenstein Halloween Costume
This monster was a creation of Victor Frankenstein. When planned was hoped to be beautiful, is instead hideous, with watery yellow eyes, and a withered, translucent, yellowish skin that barely conceals the muscular system and blood vessels. Later on, this monster has been responsible for the killings of Victor’s family members and friends.
8. Zombie Halloween Costume
Since the Plants vs Zombies is too popular lately, sure this one is an option for the scary Halloween Costumes. Not just a decent decaying zombie because it’s intestines are visible already. It’s hand is rotten too.
9. Death Halloween Costume
According to some stories, this character is responsible in fetching someone who is about to die whether in dreams or imaginations. That once he shows up and hits a person with his scythe of death (blade), then the person finally dies as he is beheaded. Looking at it, it’s a skeleton dressed up in black worn out outfit and he’s got wings!
10. Father of All Halloween Costumes
I came across a blog site with this photo but the costume idea doesn’t have a name yet. Seeing its got lots of babies all over, I called it Father of All. It could be more creepier if those babies are made of soft rubbers, wet and bloody too. No doubt this one is really weird.
Top 11 Funny Halloween Costumes and Clever Halloween Costumes
From the scary costumes, let’s move on to something light. These hilarious Halloween costumes can be the highlight of the party too. If you don’t like to frighten people in the party or in the neighborhood, any of these could be the best option for you. Draw lots of attention and add much fun to the festival! Here you will find random Halloween Fancy Dress too. Notice that most of the costumes are worn by men, simply because it’s acceptable to make fun of them.

Oh for sure by looking at them at a party, they could melt my heart away! Well, what I really mean is I wish they won’t melt when people stare at them because they are so adorable in their costumes.

Aside from that huge old female body worn by a man, the concept itself is funny. She is looking for her puppy not knowing where it’s actually stuck, in between her butt! Poor pup!
7. Muscleman Costumes
What’s funny about these costumes is that because the guys wearing them aren’t really macho men, just trying hard to show off abs from a skin-toned leotards with abs effect.
8. Funny Fat Girl Costume or Baywatch Costume
While it’s not appropriate to see a woman wearing a bikini on Halloween parties, these men are taking the limelight and would catch the attention of everyone around. They are not just lovely but definitely sexy too.
