When we think about monkeys we often think about those cute and cheeky baboons, chimps and orang-utans. Whatever you think, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the number of great monkey costumes. You’ll probably want the cute monkey costumes for your toddlers. But adults and older kids might want some of the more scary monkey outfits for Halloween.
One great thing about monkey costumes is that you can be anonymous. No one will know who is inside the costume.
Personally, I think the flying monkey costume from the Wizard of Oz is one of the scariest of the monkey costumes. The flying monkeys were called winged monkeys in the original Wizard of Oz novel. They were evil but intelligent. The Wicked Witch of the West controlled them with her golden hat. Dorothy and her companions were set upon by the flying monkeys as they began their journey to the Emerald City. They even destroyed the tin man and the scarecrow, leaving them in tatters across the fields. In the original novel the monkeys can speak but in the 1939 film, they are silent. Because of their silence they seemed more malevolent in the film. I love the flying monkey costumes that you can get online. One has a really scary mask with sharp pointed teeth.
Then there’s another scary and terrifying monkey, King Kong. Even though he gives the appearance of being really bad, he in fact does have feelings for a human woman which makes the end of the King Kong movies quite heartbreaking. Running around in a ferocious looking gorilla suit at Halloween will definitely create a stir.
Another really scary looking gorilla costume is the Creature Reacher Mad Ape. The costume’s mask is snarling and really angry looking. It’s certainly an ugly looking brute – ideal for Halloween!
The costume I love most for kids is the Ben 10 Spider Monkey costume. If you want an unusual monkey costume, this has to be it being a cross between a monkey costume and a spider costume. If you want some more ideas, drop by my monkey Halloween costume website.
If you would like a costume that’s suitable for both adults and kids, then you can’t go wrong by choosing a Disney character. You will without doubt be spoilt for choice: there are so many terrific Disney characters.
The Disney Princess costume is a fantastic choice for females, whether young and old. There are a whole range of Disney Princess costumes based upon the various movie Princesses. They include the ever popular Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora from the Sleeping Beauty, Ariel the Little Mermaid, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine from Aladdin, Pocahontas and the more recent Mulan and Tiana from The Princess and the Frog. Each of these pretty princesses can be identified by their diverse costumes, from glorious ball gowns to American Indian and belly dancing costumes.
If you want your costume to be more edgy, you can still discover some excellent choices in the Disney range. How about the evil queen from Snow White wearing her gothic looking purple and black robe or the magnificently evil Cruella De Vil with her black and white hair and outrageous costumes?
For the boys there are some equally fabulous costumes based on Disney characters, the most recent ones being Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland and Dastan from the Prince of Persia. If you fancy looking a little freakish then the Mad Hatter is perfect with his crazy clothes and orange hair.
Another crazy character is Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas who could be paired with the lovely Sally for a couples costume.
For something a little more heroic you should consider the Dastan outfitfrom the Prince of Persia or perhaps a Prince Charming or even the crazy but gorgeous Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
You’ll see that there are so many choices of costumes when it comes to Disney characters. Make sure you take drop by my Disney costumes for adults website for more excellent ideas and my Disney Belle costume site.
If you’re looking for a fun and sexy suit, why not go for a Playboy bunny suit. You’ll attract lots of attention. Over the years there have been some famed bunny rabbits found in literature, telly and cinema. Do you have a favorite rabbit? Mine is Peter Rabbit. Other loved rabbits are Bugs Bunny and Brer Rabbit. Rabbit have also been used in advertising to promote various products. Did you ever see the Duracell Bunny used to market the batteries?
There are so many different types of bunny suits to choose from. Let me give you some advice. Firstly, let’s take a look at the sexy bunny costumes. I’m certain all the men would pick this category over the others! Two costume ideas come to mind, the first being that femme fatale, Jessica Rabbit and, of course, the most notable sexy bunnies, the Playboy Bunnies. The character of Jessica Rabbit was based on Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake and is voiced by Kathleen Turner in the film. Do you like dresses slit up to the thigh? Then you’ll like Jessica rabbits tight long red dress. It’s set off by her high heeled shoes and long gloves. If you are not a natural redhead then a long wavy redhead wig will perfect this sensational look. The Playboy bunny girl costume is quite easy to copy. To appear like the original bunny girl, you could use a black bathing suit, or a merry widow corset, collar with a bow tie, cuffs, black mesh pantyhose, and a pair of black high heeled shoes.
Or would you choose a bunny costume that’s more fun? What about a traditional furry bunny? They’re usually all in one outfits that have big rabbit ears. Are you a lover of Friends, the television series? Do you remember Chandler as a big pink and white bunny at Monica’s and his Halloween party? The easiest thing is to buy an already made bunny costume as they look so cute and realistic, but if you are trying to save the bucks then you could make your own from scratch. If you’re determined to make your own, you could use a white sweat suit as a starting point. Then you only need to add a white pom pom to your rear for a tail and a pair of bunny ears. You’ll also need white gloves and shoes to complete the outfit.
