Fire safety is an important aspect when it comes to costumes. Due to this, you should be wary of the clothes that you buy. To be safe, you should need to do the following:
Pay attention to the fabric
The costume becomes a fire hazard when it’s made from a highly flammable material. To be on the safe side, you should go for one made of a fire resistant material. The unfortunate thing is that there are many fabrics in the market; therefore, it’s almost impossible to tell which material is fire resistant and which isn’t. To be on the safe side, you should look out for the EN71 label on your costume. This label means that the outfit complies with the EN71 which is a Europe-wide standard that tests for flammability.

1. Keep an eye on what’s trending. If you want to stand out from the crowd, don’t dress as Khal Drogo of Game Of Thrones. You’ll be surprised how many people had the same idea.

The satisfaction that comes with it is worth more than the many hours you’ll spend watching tutorials and those you’ll spend practicing improving your sewing.

Lets face it, planning a birthday party can be stressful, time consuming and expensive. I have a son turning one in a month and I’m already stressing about where the party should be at, what time will work for naps, how many people should I invite, and what will they all do at the party? That’s the key, what will all of my guests do at a party for a child? Nobody, wants their party guests to be bored, and everyone wants their party to be the party that everyone else is talking about.

As a child, I loved the Disney Princesses. Every year a new movie would come out, a new princess would emerge to look up to and want to be like, and thus, a new princess I wanted to come to my birthday party. Year after year, it never got old, I would have Ariel, Belle, Pocahontas, and Jasmine look-a-likes come to my birthday and make me feel like I was a princess myself. I used to believe they were the real live character come to life for my birthday party. But as I got older, I began to realize that they were just ladies portraying my beloved characters. But somehow it didn’t seem to matter. Regardless if they were real or not, I still wanted them at my birthday party and my mom always found a way to get one there.
Halloween is a celebration that is focused on honoring the dead. The celebration started hundreds of years ago where it involved a series of ceremonies and rituals that were performed by different religious groups.
Although, the occasion started off as a religious and spiritual occasion, things have now changed. Halloween has turned into a cultural celebration where people dress up in costumes and tell scary stories.
Although, the Halloween concept has been around for hundreds of years, the practice of getting dressed up in costumes started in 1910s and 1920s. When the idea became popular, it was initially geared towards children; however, adults quickly joined in and also started dressing up in costumes.
Sights of decorated pumpkins, fascinating costumes, flashy masks, hoard of candies, feelings of spookiness in the air and you know its Halloween time. Be it children or adults, every one eagerly awaits the arrival of this festive season to put on the best show with the most bizarre and magnificent Halloween costumes.
Halloween makes a great time for families to bond with each other. Most families opt for special family Halloween costumes in which the whole family can be distinguished by their identical outfits. The festivities don’t end here as kids then make their way around the neighborhood flaunting their funny outfits and trick or treating from door to door asking adults for candies.
The Halloween season also gives rise to many competitions to add more excitement to the occasion with contests like pumpkin carving competition, Halloween craft competitions and best Halloween costume competition. With such competitions taking place, there is even more pressure to come up with the most extraordinary Halloween costumes.
The Trial: Victor. We met on a dating website, didn’t converse much before he asked me out but what I did know that I liked about him was, he was a few years younger than me, likes to dress up in costumes, and is in Marketing. I told him I only go on drinking dates so we agree to meet at a pub.
The Error: He was a several minutes late which, thoughtless as it may have been, wasn’t the end of the world, except that it resulted in the first conversation we ever had being on the subject of drying undershirts. Think about how you screw up any meeting where the first thing you have to talk about is why you weren’t there on time. Call ahead and warn her so you don’t have to talk about it when you meet in person. So, undershirts and tumble dryers are less than riveting first impression material, unless you are me, who as usual had a glass of wine (OK, two glasses of wine) knowing full well that I intimidate my suitors with my magnificence and I can ease the awkwardness by giggling and talking enough for the both of us. I have a lifelong mission to protect everyone else’s confidence in themselves until the moment they offend me. It is both a blessing and a curse, but I’ve never really been a gray area kind of girl so it suits me.
