Every year on Halloween people spend millions of dollars on costumes.  Of course costumes are what Halloween is all about as it should be.  However, the right accessories can take a good costume and make it great!  Accessories are everything.  The definition of accessory is "an article or set of articles of dress that adds completeness, convenience, attractiveness, etc., to one's basic outfit".  Accessorizing is really pretty simple for a Halloween costume.  Let's take a look at a couple of our "top 10 costumes for 2008" and see what accessories would give them that "wow" factor: For children we have: Indiana Jones Deluxe Child Costume - this costume comes complete with jacket and attached shirt, pants and the official Indiana Jones hat.  Sounds like all you need, huh?  Well if you happen to see the movie, Indiana Jones was hardly ever seen without his trusted whip and tote bag.  Put on some old worn shoes or boots and the look is complete.  You can even add the machete to top it off!

And at the other end of the costume spectrum for adults we have: 

Miss Mafia Adult Costume - this costume comes complete with a black and pink pin-stripped halter dress, tie and cuffs with $ design cuff links.  However, if you want to portray the part of "sexy" with this costume it's as simple as adding a few accessories such as; fishnet stockings, a pair of high-heel shoes, a black fedora hat and if you'd like you can add the gangster "purse" briefcase for the complete look.


What is so great about ordering costumes at is that you don't have to look all over the website trying to find which accessories go with which costumes.  When you find the costume you want, you'll see a list of the accessories that go with it right there on the same page.  Just click and add them to your order - it's that simple!  However, if it's just accessories you're looking for or maybe you want some more ideas of what you can add to your costume to give it that "finished" look go to our "accessories and makeup" page.  It has everything you'll need to give your costume that perfect accessorized look!
