While some families go all out when it comes to decorating the house for Halloween, all you really need is a few decorative items to set the right mood. One such item is a Halloween valance depicting creepy scenes of scary pumpkins and black cats. Actually, there are many Halloween prints that you can buy that run the range from mildly spooky to scary, but fun. If you do opt for the scarier versions, you may not want to put them in your child’s room, unless they are old enough :).

One of the easiest costumes is to throw on a Mardi Gras mask, which can be bought at most costume shops and online, complement that with a bunch of necklace beads and you’re ready to go. You can also get a little adventurous by dressing up as a sexy Jester or Venetian Carnival Princess or Signor. Like Mardis Gras itself, you are only limited by your imagination.

Celebrate a love for the Irish culture on Halloween with a costume that depicts the more popular notions of Ireland. One of the first things that pops in my mind is of course the color green and the fun leprechaun character. This is a costume that looks great on children or adults alike. If you are looking for more of a grown up theme, there is a lucky charm costume, as well as a sexy Luck of the Irish costume and Lucky Four Leaf Clover costume. Whatever you decide, you’re sure to bring a grin to more than a few faces.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend an evening among friends as a banana? How about a watermelon? Well, with the many varieties of fruit Halloween costumes, you can do just that. A great way to put fruit costumes to good use, is to get a good group of friends together to go as different fruit, thus creating a kind of human fruit salad. Or, if you are more the loner type, you could always dress up as Youtube sensation, the Annoying Orange. But keep the annoying part to a minimum, if you want to enjoy yourself without getting kicked out.

If you think that superheroes are primarily a male dominated arena, then think again. For the most part, each male superhero has a female counterpart who is just as strong, just as fast, just as smart and just as green (in the case of She-Hulk). A great female superhero costume to don at Halloween is a Supergirl costume.
