Teenager’s Hercules Costume

When it comes to dressing up for Halloween, picking a costume like Hercules is always a good choice. It’s a masculine outfit that will make the wearer look both muscled and tough.

In order to keep the costume light and comfortable to wear, the Hercules costume uses brown leather to mimic the look of body armor. The leather has gold trimming and plenty of detail so everything looks authentic.

Underneath the leather armor of the costume, you’ll find there’s a white tunic. There’s no leather armor for the back of the costume for your comfort. This lets you sit or stand-whatever you need to do in the costume and allows you to move easily.

Although you won’t have the armor behind you, the costume does come with a red cape so the lack of back armor isn’t noticeable except to you.

The cape is designed to sit around your shoulders and neck so that it falls over the back of the tunic. Like the armor that’s attached to the front of the tunic, the cape is also attached to the rest of the costume.

This can make it easy to slip into without having to struggle to put on several different pieces of the costume. The Hercules outfit can be washed and ironed on a very low heat setting as needed if it wrinkles.

Along with the leather armor, tunic, and cape, the Hercules costume includes a few other accessories to complete the armor and make you look like a true ancient god. The first of these accessories is the forearm bands. These bands are made of brown leather with gold trim.

The second accessory is the bicep bands. The bicep bands match the forearm bands perfectly. They’re easily fastened with velcro. With the costume, you also get a headband that’s designed to be worn on your forehead. To complete the look, shin guards are also included. These guards are made of the same leather and stretch from your calf muscle down to your shins.

Even though you get all those pieces included with the costume, there are still a few accessories you might want to add to your outfit to give it that authentic warrior look. The most common additional accessory that people buy is a sword.

There are many different types of sword props available, so you can grab the one that appeals to you the most. If you plan on carrying your sword around all night, then choose a lightweight one.

Two other common accessories for the Hercules costume are open toe sandals and a Roman helmet with bright red feathers. With these three items, you’ll look and feel like the toughest god around.

Easy The Lego Movie Costumes Ideas For Kids And Teenagers

The Lego Movie Costumes are easy to make for teens and kids! This movie was a laugh out loud fun adventure that features many memorable characters that are perfect for emulating for Halloween. First up is Emmet who in a case of mistaken identity is thought to be the one who has to join a group of other characters to save the world.

The fact that Emmet is not that type of character makes the movie funnier. But Emmet could certainly rule on Halloween. His construction worker costume is a fairly simple one, but definitely stands out.

His costume is an orange pair of pants and top. The top is actually a safety vest and not really a shirt. It has the wide white stripes with a right pocket for holding a pen.

The vee neck vest dips open to show Emmet’s blue, long sleeved, open collar shirt beneath it. Topping the uniform is his bright red hard hat. If you wanted to be really authentic, you could use yellow body paint to color your hands and face to go along with the uniform.

Next up is Wyldstyle. Her costume gives a nod to her tough style shown in the movie. First, at a glance, she’s clad in head to toe black. The bottom of the costume is a pair of plain black pants.

The top is a zippered leather looking hoodie with the hood left hanging down the back. The main decorations on her costume are on the right side. There’s a mixture of blue and kind of pink/mauve design all tangled together almost in a line or slash style.

For the hair, you can either go with a black wig that has the one wide pink and one wide blue stripe, or you can use your natural hair and some of that Halloween hair color spray.

Though there are many versions of the Batman costume like the figurine has in the movie, you can get the same one. This costume is black from head to toe. The starkness of the black is broken only by the background yellow behind the bat emblem and the yellow of the belt. This costume has a cape and a soft hooded mask with the pointed ears. Accessories are available with this costume.

Vitruvius, the wise wizard has a more complicated costume. His costume is a pair of blue pants paired with a shirt that looks almost like a tie-dye shirt. He has a long, flowing white robe with brown tassels at the bottom front.

A blue cape is also part of his costume. To get his long white hair and long white beard look, you can buy these as separate pieces but don’t forget the headband that he wears. If you want to get that white look to the eyes, you can get glasses with white lenses.

The Benny character has a costume that’s a blue jumpsuit with a gray moon logo on the torso. The space helmet has an open front.

Teens Will Love Godzilla Costumes!

Many adults can remember the Godzilla of their youth. In the show about the monster, the popular creature would often battle other monsters and while he was destructive to buildings and other things as he’d sweep his tail around, we also saw Godzilla as a hero of sorts.

The creature has now seen a rebirth in the new movie that bears his name and features a host of talented actors and actresses. The old and new popularity of the creature is why the Godzilla Halloween costume is such a fast selling item.

For the little ones who desire to act as Godzilla when they’re going after Halloween goodies, there’s a perfect costume for them. This costume is made of foam and it’s padded so it’s super comfortable and warm as well.

It has green feet shoe covers that look just like Godzilla’s feet and gives a sense of realism to the costume. One of the things that parents like about this costume is that the Godzilla mask features an open mouth. This enables a child to be able to see easier so less likelihood of tripping and falling.

The lizard-like hands of the costume are attached so those aren’t separate gloves. The tail is also attached and has padding so it has that full look unlike some tails that tend to look a little withered.

Kids aren’t the only ones that get a kick out of dressing up like this character. Adults enjoy it too and just like the kid costume, the adult version features identical stuffing and design except of course, it’s a larger size.

Some people want to choose their own Godzilla body suit and if you can sew, that’s not a bad idea. However, if you’re looking for a realistic version of Godzilla’s face, you’re going to want to buy one. There are some really good, realistic looking masks that you can buy.

One of them is the head and neck of Godzilla and it’s done in the color like you see in the movie. It’s made out of sturdy latex and a lot of artistic attention was paid toward getting the details right.

The outside of the mask has the same ridges and bumps that Godzilla has. It also has the same half-lidded eyes with the lines between them that give the creature his ferocious look. The mouth of the mask is slightly open and you can see a peek of the tongue. But up front are the white, razor sharp teeth.

Frozen Halloween Costumes For Teens

This past year, Frozen was one of the most popular movies for adults and kids alike. Frozen Halloween costumes are going to be some of the hottest costumes for teens and younger kids this Halloween!

Elsa is one of the few main characters of the movie and the Elsa costume is a great one. She wears a really nice light blue dress that is covered with white snowflakes. It looks quite a bit like the dress she wore in the movie while singing “Let It Go”! Any teenage girl will look like a queen since the dress is regal and quite flowy as you move.

To finish out the costume you’ll need a few accessories (that shouldn’t be too costly). Start with a tiara for their crown. Then you’ll want to get some sparkly shoes and some tights in a blue color. If you want to go all out you can find a wig that looks just like Elsa’s hair!

Another of the main characters teens will want to dress up as is Anna – Elsa’s sister. The Anna Halloween costume is pretty easy to find. It’s a really nice dress (just like Elsa’s). The blue dress is darker than the one Elsa wears. For the complete look you’ll need a cape (which comes with the official version of the costume, thankfully). The cape helps the teen or young girl stay warm while trick or treating or going to a Halloween party with friends or family.

You may want to consider a tiara for Anna’s costume as well (though it’s not necessary). There are some nice wigs that match Anna’s hair really well.

To really go all out and finalize both girls’ costumes there are a lot of options for jewelry in the Frozen theme. Amazon has a ton of bracelents and such to choose from.

Olaf is another great character from the Frozen movie. Teenage boys or girls could really dress up as Olaf this year. The Olaf costume is easy to figure out. You’ll need a white jumpsuit with a full hood. Wear either a brown or white t-shirt (with long sleeves) underneath the jumpsuit. You’ll also need some white boots, slippers, or booties to complete the look.

Progressive Insurance Flo Costume For Teens

If you’re looking for a costume for Flo, the Progressive Insurance lady then you’ve come to the right place. She is one of those characters from TV (from a commercial nonetheless) that everyone seems to love. People will instantly recognize you, and fortunately her costume is easy and cheap to make up!

She’s a fun costume pick for any Halloween event and you can look just like her with a few simple accessories. The first thing you’ll want to work on is capturing Flo’s hairstyle.

It’s often described as perky and it fits her personality. Style your hair so your bangs part to the side and give your hair some extra volume in the back. For best results, try using a volume styling hair insert.

Once you’re done with that, add a simple navy headband and you’ll be well on your way to looking just like Flo. If you don’t want to style your hair like Flo’s or if you don’t have time to, you can opt for a wig that’s already styled and just add a headband to it.

Once you’ve finished with styling your hair, you’ll need the clothing part of the costume. For this, you’ll want to wear a white polo and white pants. Next, grab a white apron.

There are actually official aprons with Progressive’s logo available or you can use a heat transfer to put the logo on your apron if you want to do it yourself. For shoes, opt for blue sneakers. If you want to match Flo exactly, wear Navy Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.

After you have Flo’s outfit and hair done, you’ll want to get a few accessories to complete the look. The first accessory to look for is an ‘I Heart Insurance’ pin. This badge is usually pinned to Flo’s apron on the top right side.

On the left side of the apron across from the badge is Flo’s nametag. Her nametag is white with two blocks of color above it. The first block of color is orange and the second one is blue. Flo’s name is typed in all caps using a plain font.

You’ll want to purchase a watch that’s small and has a brown leather band to match Flo’s if you don’t already have one like it. Finally, don’t forget the auto insurance box that Flo carries. You can create your own insurance box or you might be able to find one to purchase that you can use as a prop.

Now all you need to do is add some bright red lipstick and your Flo costume will be complete. If you want to match Flo’s lipstick exactly, then opt for MAC Lady Bug lipstick since it’s the official brand she wears.

Teenager’s Duck Dynasty Costumes For Halloween

If you’re looking for a fun costume idea, then you should consider dressing up as one of the characters from the Duck Dynasty show. Two of the most popular characters from the show are Uncle Si and his nephew, Willie, both of which you can find costumes for. These can both be great costumes used for teens this year at Halloween!

The Uncle Si costume comes with a camouflage hunting vest that has the Duck Dynasty logo on the left side. You can wear what you like under the jacket, even jeans and a t-shirt with long sleeves will work. But for best results, you’ll probably want to wear a camouflage jacket and pants so it’s more keeping with the character.

Along with the vest, you’ll also get a hat and a pair of glasses that are similar to the ones Uncle Si wears on the show. Of course, the best part of the costume is the big, thick beard they’re all known for. To complete the look, be sure to carry around a green tumbler and sip a beverage of your choice.

For Willie’s costume, you’ll get a hunting vest that looks similar to Uncle Si’s. Also included are a bandana with the American flag and a fake beard. To get the look that Willie wears, pair faded blue jeans with a dress shirt and a white suit coat.

Another popular character from the Duck Dynasty show is Phil Robertson. He’s the father of Willie, the voice of the narrator, and he’s also Uncle Si’s brother. A costume for Phil would include a beard and a camouflage bandanna or hat and possibly some comfortable sunglasses. Don’t forget to pick up a duck call to complete the look.

One of the most popular female characters on Duck Dynasty is Miss Kay. She’s the wife of Phil Robertson and mother to Willie. She’s known for wearing an apron frequently on the show.

Sometimes, her aprons have her name on them and sometimes they don’t. If you plan on dressing up as Miss Kay, then look for a costume that has an apron packaged with it.

Another thing that could be included with a Miss Kay costume would be a dark wig and possibly rain boots as she’s known to wear them frequently. Miss Kay’s biggest passion besides her faith and her family is cooking.

So to complete the look of your Miss Kay costume, grab a plastic bowl and stirring spoon. You can even put powdered sugar or white flour in the bowl. Take a small bit of the flour or sugar and blow on it for a true Miss Kay look.

Dracula Untold Costumes For Teenagers

Like many years, Dracula costumes will be pretty popular this year. Many people don’t know that the Prince Vlad lived in Romania and was given the name Dracula which some say means “Son of Dracul” while others say it means “Son of a dragon.”

Regardless of the meaning, the name Dracula has struck fear in the hearts of people who became acquainted with the name thanks to Bram Stoker’s book froms o long ago.

Vampire costumes from Dracula Untold will be great for teenagers of all ages this year!

The story of Dracula has been retold many times since teh late 1800s. Dracula Untold is one version of such a retelling.

This is a movie that’s supposed to release close to Halloween and is guaranteed to chase chills up your spine. The creep factor to this movie and character is more fitting with a horror film and dials up the dread so much more than other retellings.

Luke Evans is the actor who plays the character of Vlad Tepes based on Prince Vlad or Vlad the Impaler as he was called. In the movie, it explores the world of Vlad Tepes before and up to him becoming the fearsome character. The movie has a gray, dark tone to the settings as well as with the costumes.

Unlike the cartoonish Dracula costumes you’ll sometimes see on the market, the one worn in the movie is quite stylish. The color of Dracula’s clothes are gray or black starting with the character even before he’s known as Dracula.

As Vlad, the character manages to create an empathetic feel due to his strong feelings for the world he rules and those he cares about. When he’s in character, you’ll find this character’s costume to be dark, long sleeves shirts that look blue-gray in color paired with dark pants.

As Dracula, the costume is a long, flowing black cape similar to the ones you’ve seen in the other Dracula stories. There’s also a button up, dark vest in a silky material – and a neck scarf is worn at times.

Though the character of Dracula does have fangs in this movie, it’s not the fake looking ones from movies past. These look real and very fearsome. You’ll find that some of the Dracula costumes advertise the fangs along with a cape and black boot covers while with other costumes, you have to buy each piece as an individual one.

Another one of the costumes from the movie is a cloak more than a cape. It has large sleeves and is more of a dark gray than black. There’s a gray vest with this one and large black cravat tied in a bow. The white shirt that goes under the vest does not come with this costume.

3 Ways To Use Halloween Creepy Cloth

creepy clothI was looking through Amazon for some Halloween ideas today and I saw a neat product called “creepy cloth“. It’s a great idea that can be used both for decorations at Halloween or for a kid’s Halloween costume!

1 – Decorate with Creepy Cloth at your Halloween party! This could be used in almost any way you can think of as a decoration. It’s a sheer black fabric with rips and tears throughout it so it can be hung along walls or in corners near the ceiling for a run-down and creepy atmosphere. Since it’s 4 yards long you can easily cut it into pieces and sprinkle them on walls or in doorways for a dramatic effect!

2 – Halloween costume. If you want to have a nice Zombie costume but don’t know what fabrics to use, you could use this in layers to make up an impromptu torn-up zombie cloth. You’d likely want your kid to have some “dirty looking” clothes under it but this could easily be fashioned into a worn down jacket as an outer layer!

3 – Make furniture look old or make the outdoor decor scary for trick or treaters! I would imagine this would look good when strung over furniture at a Halloween party to quickly turn your regular furniture into a spooky version. Or – you can string it from the entrance to your front door to make kids walk through it to get to the door when they go trick or treating!

No matter what you choose to do with “Creepy Cloth” this haunted season, it’s a super cheap price and very easy to use to transform your decor into a spooky theme 🙂

Thor Costume From Avengers

When The Avengers movie came out this year, hot on the heels of the 2011 Thor movie, it was set in stone that this superhero’s costume would be one of the top sellers for boys. The Thor Movie Kids Costume comes in sizes 4-6, 7-8 or 10-12.  One of the reasons I like this costume is that it’s simple yet kids and teens will love it!  Also – there are only two accessories that you need to get to finish off the complete Thor costume for boys!

Thor, the Marvel Comics character who was taken from mythology, wields a heavy hammer that no mere mortal can lift. The hammer isn’t included with the costume, but you can buy it separately.

The costume reflects what the movie character (played by Chris Hemsworth) would wear into battle. He has a strong chest plate connected in a jumpsuit fashion and a red superhero cape flies behind him as he fights evil.

The costume doesn’t come with shoes, but in the movie Thor wore black boots. If your child doesn’t have black boots, then you can pair it with sneakers instead, because the jumpsuit will be black down to his ankles.

thor costume for boys

As for the accessories you can buy to go with the Thor Movie Kids Costume, consider investing in the helmet that Thor sometimes wears. It’s a silver helmet with wings that comes with a velcro strap to help it stay in place. It’s not heavy and bulky as you might expect, because that would be difficult for smaller kids to keep on.

Now when you go shopping for a Thor hammer to go with the costume, you’ll come to realize there is a wide range of options for you to choose from. Some are simple foam in either the brown and silver or brown and blue shades.

One Thor hammer that really stands out is the Thor Lightening Hammer. Every boy will want one of these because is comes to life with the press of a button, when you suddenly hear thunder and see flashing lights that mimic Thor’s ability to call on lightening, wind and thunder during battle.

The best thing about the Thor Lightening Hammer is that it has a built in weapon to go with it. It launches a missile at your enemies! So when you consider what your child will want, keep in mind that this option has extra features the foam versions just can’t compete with.

If your child is a toddler and too young for the costume described here, then you can find toddler sized Thor costumes. You can also find grown men’s Thor costumes, if you want father and son to dress alike this Halloween eve.

2013’s Best Halloween Costumes For Boys


As boys grow out of the cute toddler and young kid stagse, they usually want to be strong and formidable characters! Sometimes they want to be funny and goofy, too! Many boys continue wanting to dress up as animals, but instead of a cute lion with a precious man that Mom or Dad picked out, they might choose a ferocious T-Rex!

Younger boys are interested in characters from The Croods, Wreck It Ralph, Iron Man, Man of Steel, Despicable Me 2, and a few other hot picks. Just find out what movie they’re obsessed with and that’s probably what kind of costume they’ll want.

Captain America has recently seen a rise in popularity since the Avengers movie series came onto the scene with a bang. You can buy costumes that come with or without his famous shield – and some of them even light up!

Batman (the Dark Knight) will never go out of style. From the classic costume of years gone by to the new stealth-like black attire, he’s a hit with little boys who want to catch the bad guys.

Classic movies like Star Wars give your young (or teen) boy a lot of options. From the evil Darth Vader to Chewbacca and Storm Troopers, they have tons of choices they can pick – and the costumes range from simple one piece fabric suits to extravagant costumes that look just like they came off the set of the movie.

For years, video game characters like the Super Mario Brothers have been a popular costume for boys of all ages to wear. In 2013, Minecraft is one of the most popular video games – and it’s a hit with young kids all the way through adults.

Your son might want to be a creeper, which is a green character that sneaks up on you and causes you to lose one of your lives in the game if you can’t run away from it fast enough.

Zombies are also a hit with boys. The Walking Dead is what’s caused a spike in this costume popularity, and you can get a simple zombie costume for the younger (tween) boys, and a super gory costume for the older teens.
