Every Halloween we have to be creative. We have to dress up both our kids and ourselves, and we need to decorate our homes. But when you have to do this year after year, sometimes you begin to run out of ideas. It's hard to be new and different every Halloween. In order to help keep your creative juices flowing, take a look at some of the ideas outlined below. Use these ideas to keep your Halloween costumes fresh and fun.

Your child's probably tired of being Superman or Wonder Woman year after year. Why not choose a more natural look this Halloween? Dress them up as a tiger or bear, or some other animal costume. Not only are these great costumes on their own, but they can be added to and accessorized with in ways that seem very creative. Depending on the look your child is going for, you can make them look either scary or cute.

Maybe you child wants to look cute. Add an adorable stuffed animal on the candy bucket, and match the stuffed animal to the costume. For example, if they're dressed up as a lion, add a plush lion to the candy bucket, and they get to travel with a little friend! Maybe you want the lion to be a scary man-eater. Add some scars to its fur, and maybe some vampire teeth too, and it will look like its fangs are barred. For the stuffed animal in the bucket, attach the lion's prey. Get something like a small stuffed giraffe, and add some fake blood so that it looks like a recent kill by this dangerous lion

Stuffed animals can be used in a lot of other ways to dress up practically any costume. For example, say you want to dress up like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Get a little plush dog and put it in a straw basket and you'll have Toto to carry around with you! Or maybe you want to be a traditional witch. No witch costume is complete without her trusty familiar: a black cat. Add a broom and a stuffed cat and you've got some great additions to your outfit! These costumes come with an extra bonus, because you get to keep the stuffed animals once Halloween is over!

Maybe you want to look like a Disney Princess, so you get all sorts of small forest animals. All you need is a small basket and you can fill it up with stuffed bunnies, stuffed raccoons, and even plush squirrels. No princess costume is complete without its entourage! Or if you want to be Tarzan this Halloween, get a big stuffed monkey to carry around with you. Wrap it around your neck, and the monkey will authenticate your costume and keep you warm during this chilly October.

As you can see, there are a ton of great ideas you can use for Halloween. You can have fresh ideas every year, and have a fun and spooky costume. Go ahead and put these concepts into practice, and before you know it everyone will be wondering how you came up with such an innovative idea!
