Be a Superhero For Halloween

Posted April 12th, 2014 by Halloweenish

Remember when, as a kid, you ran through the back yard with a cape tied to your neck? Those were the days of fun and carefree play that marked childhood. Somewhere along the line, people changed what fun means, and if you ran around in a ‘cape’ today, well you might end up somewhere with white walls instead of green grass, unless, of course, it’s Halloween. Halloween is that one day a year us adults get to dress up like we did when we were kids, but the days of sheets around our necks are gone (well unless you like the sheet look). Today there are superhero costumes at really inexpensive prices available on-line or at your local costume shop. Here are the top 7 superhero costumes for adults and kids alike.

Batman- Whether you wear the 1960s version or the 1990s version, this costume stands the test of time. The updated version is, of course, sexier, but the older version has its benefits as well (it’s usually cheaper, for one).

Spiderman – Hollywood has given us two versions of this costume with the release of Spiderman 3. While the outfit was already known among Spiderman comic readers, the movie has made the darker, more evil, black Spiderman suit popular. There are even kids versions of this costume in both colors.

The Incredibles – This fantastic movie not only made us laugh, it gave us new superheros and their costume styles. Part of the charm of their costumes are the gray, red and black colors. The other charming aspect of these costumes is they were worn by a family, so as a family costume this one is terrific.

Wonder Woman – By far one of the best superhero costumes of all time. It is also the most elaborate. There is no costume which has as many accessories to complete the outfit, than Wonder Woman. The Lasso of Truth, gold bracelets (better known as vambraces), boots and of course the crown make this costume a fun piece of clothing to wear.

Daredevil – The movie may have semi-bombed, but this beloved comic book hero is an inspiration. Besides it is a great excuse to buy red leather pants and jacket.

Superman – Perhaps not the sexiest of costumes, the popularity of Smallville makes this a great character to emulate. Since his alter ego, Clark Kent, is also recognizable a simple pair of chinos, button down shirt with a superman t-shirt underneath is also a great way to wear this costume (without having to put on tights).

Supergirl – One of my favorite costumes of all time (as well as movies), this costume, unlike the Superman one, is very sexy and fun to wear.

There is no limit to the number of available superhero costumes to wear. I’ve only presented a limited number here. A simple Internet search will yield thousands of costume stores on-line with ridiculously low prices for the costumes.

Halloween’s True Story

Posted April 8th, 2014 by Halloweenish
Just few people know about the entire story of its origins. In this article, I will tell the real true story of  Halloween.
The story of Halloween story begins over 2,000 years ago in one area that today comprises the United Kingdom, Ireland, and a section of France where a group of people known as Celts celebrated Samhain on November 1 – their New Year. This celebration also denoted the commencement of Winter with its cold and blackness coupled with the termination of Summer and its warmth and sunshine. The Winter season in their belief was related to death and, most importantly for us, the night before Samhain – the separations between the living and the dead became intermingled.
Crops were burned and animals were sacrificed to their Gods over huge bonfires that were built by their clergy – the Druids. Animal skins and heads were utilized as costumes as their Priests forecast the futures of the individual Celts. The Druid prophecies were looked upon as a source of solace in the coming desolate months of Winter. At the end of the evening of celebration – the Celts lit their small torches, took them home, and used them to light their fires that would last through the entire Winter season. It was on the night of October 31st that they believed the dead might return to damage the community food supply and create havoc. After the Romans conquered the Celtic territories they combined two of their festivals with Samhain. One commemorated those that had passed away and the other was related to a celebration of fruits and trees. The focused fruit of this festival was the apple which explains the custom of ‘bobbing’ for apples to this day.
In the first millennium AD…the Pope of the day, Boniface IV decreed that November 1st would be known as All Saints Day in honor of all martyrs and saints. It is today understood that this designation was an attempt to replace the Celtic celebration with one that was sanctioned by the Church. It is not so well-known that the Mid-English translation of All Saints Day was All-Hallows or All-Hallowmas..??
Moving toward the middle of the 20th century – Halloween found itself in a revived mode due to the baby boom of the 40s and trick-or-treating realized a huge resurgence which helped create a brand new North American tradition. It is estimated that more than $6 Billion is spent annually on this holiday ranking it second in importance of all holidays – only behind Christmas in importance and the all-important….retail revenues.
Traditions play heavily when celebrating Halloween. Those that wear costumes are giving respect to its European and Celtic roots while our Native Americans believe in evil spirits and the descendants of African slaves adhere to the tradition of black magic. The British wear nuts as charms to ward off the Devil who was believed to be a nut gatherer and the Welsh believed that if you sneezed on that day you blew your soul out of your body. We must not forget the belief that children born on this day can visualize and carry on conversations with a wide variety of supernatural beings.
In closing it deserves to be noted that our celebration of Halloween has invented new traditions in costuming and donations of money. The costumes are showing a resurgence of traditional types known as vintage plus those of movie stars, pop art performers, athletes and politicians. It appears as if the door-to-door approach is becoming the venue of younger children who are accompanied by one parent, at minimum. The older youths tend to gravitate to house parties or costume parties where prizes reward them for their costuming efforts.
This is the story of Halloween as it has been written in many, many publications that are found online or in your local public library. I trust that I have done a credible job in assembling it for you and that it is easily understandable for everyone.
Thank You
