Top Scary Costumes for Halloween

by WriterArtist

Scary costumes are in demand for Halloween and here are the most popular themes that you can count on.

Halloween is the celebration of DEAD and therefore it has to be celebrated with the creepy quotient and fear factor. Fear rules the festive season and fear factor are the key ingredients of this festival.

The anxiety and nervousness Death brings to humans is scarier than any natural disasters. That explains why Scary theme costumes are the greatest and most popular of Halloween costumes.

Death Analogy for Halloween


A desire to know Death in its precise form is a curiosity that human beings are carrying over generations. Not that they are able to disclose the riddles of Death, but anxiousness to get closer to the spirits is perhaps why Halloween is celebrated today.


Whether or not you exist after death, the Halloween is a celebration of the Dead ones, the spirits and the fear of unknown, supernatural occurrences. This celebration with the gory costumes give the celebration a rare edge and uniqueness making it a fun filled scary experience.

Corpse Costume


A corpse with deadly looks or a grim face with death written on its face would be the call of Halloween. Glittering jewels of white pearls and gems will look awesome on the corpse bride.

Light grey or white gown that looks corpse like would be perfect for the Halloween Corpse costume. Skirt with full volume and depth with a frilled top will equally make a great costume.

An outrageous corpse costume in faux Elizabeth dress with a large heart bodice ballooning when you walk will give your body the volume of 18th century Victorian dress.

Celebrating Halloween in Costumes

Ghosts, Demons and Evil Spirits


Our ancestors who hardly could explain any Natural disaster and phenomenon have always been wary of the Dark side, demons and devils. Celebrating Death and Disasters might be the way to keep the Dark Spirits and Demons happy. Whatever the reasons, celebrating Halloween in costumes is a perhaps was thought to be a way to forget the fear of Death and keep the Demons away.

Hunting and tracking for ghosts is obvious but we are yet to encounter anything substantial. Evidences are one part of the events, confronting is a totally different experience. And then, recurrences are very uncommon.

Perhaps it will pay to visit the old haunted places to try your luck. However; beware of the bizarre and unevenly turn of incidents that will leave your life unpredicted.

Corpse bride, ghostly gal and mummy costumes look non-scarily fun.

But how would one get around in the headless costume? The entire body would have to turn to catch what happens along the sides and in back, not to mention what happens in front while one is turned backward or sideward!
