Everyone knows how important accessories are to give your outfit that finished look. Well, the same goes for Halloween costumes. What goes on your feet is just as important as what goes on your body. I know that with young children comfort and safety are way more important than style when they are running around the neighborhood trick-or-treating. They could care less what's on their feet as long as they can run fast and keep up with the other kids. My children usually wear their tennis shoes no matter what their costumes are. However, my oldest daughter Sydney is getting to the age when style does mean something and she would rather look cool with a nice pair of flat boots or sandals depending on what her costume is. If you really have a great costume this year and want it to stand out be sure to find a pair of Halloween shoes that will do that. Shoes really do make the costume! At HalloweenExpress.com all the hard work of figuring out which shoes go with which costume isn't a problem. Every costume is pictured with the shoes or boots designed to make the costume complete. You can even order the shoes at the same time you order your costume without even leaving the costume page. Everything is right there on one page to make it as easy as possible for you to get the complete look of your Halloween costume.
Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month and that the third Sunday of the month is always considered "National Ice Cream Day"? Well low and behold yesterday was the third Sunday - did you celebrate with an ice cream cone? Even though it's not a National holiday (which I can't understand) it's by far the best tasting one! In searching online to find the origins of this wonderful holiday I found that it was originally proclaimed so by President Reagan in 1984. No wonder President Reagan's was so popular! There's not a person out there that doesn't remember running out to meet the ice cream man the minute you heard his truck coming up the street playing with the song "The Entertainer" blaring through big speakers on the roof. I remember summers in our neighborhood just waiting for the ice cream man to come down our street when I was little and my children do it today. It's a tradition that I hope sticks around for a long time. Although I do remember the ice cream being quite a bit cheaper when I was little compared to the prices on the side of the truck now! To show support for this awesome "unofficial" holiday, HalloweenExpress.com has an Ice Cream Cone Costume complete with sprinkles! It is the funniest costume and believe me you'll be the talk of town for National Ice Cream Month!
Halloween decorations as well. It used to be you would carve a pumpkin and put it out on your porch for Halloween night, but not anymore! Decorating your yard for Halloween has become hugely popular over the years. Yard haunts, haunted driveways, creepy culdesacs - no matter what you call it decorating your yard for this holiday is the way to go! You can make your yard into a spooky graveyard or evil cemetary in a matter of hours and it's so much fun to do. We do it every year and the neighbors have now got into the Halloween spirit and have begun to spook their yards up as well. Two of the most important things you'll need to put the finishing special effects on any yard haunt is a fog machine and good scary Halloween music. Nothing says bloodcurdling, spine-chilling and frightening more than a haze of fog floating along the ground over your makeshift front yard cemetary all the while eerie music playing in the background. So this year, don't just decorate the inside of your house for Halloween, decorate the outside as well!
