Halloween is celebrated around the world but a primarily North American event as we now know it. As a non-denominational non- religious event for young and old. Allowing the participants to express themselves through costume, makeup and events.
Believed to be started around 1895 in Scotland, but did not really start until the 1900's in North America. Halloween Costumes grew from there on.
Ranging from the fun and frolicking to the serious and morose the range of costumes for Halloween can be from one extreme to the other. Some use this time to create some grotesque makeup with costumes that could cause nightmares. And with some really technical skills that would make some Hollywood makeup artists envious.

Maybe a movie hero or even just a fictitious character from a story, the name of the game here is to allow your imagination to flow. Create the look and feel for the experience you want to have during a Halloween event or party.
