Looking For The Best Halloween Costume in 2019

Looking for the best costume for Halloween? You’re in luck, we’re going to propose the best costumes, some are original, others terrifying and you’ll also find fun costumes. I’ll also tell you the origin of the costumes on Halloween night.

Halloween Costumes

Tonight is a good time for kids to have a blast trying to scare others with their terrifying costumes, but do you know the origin of the costumes on Halloween night?

Halloween has its origin in ancient Europe, being the Celts who boosted this celebration. They believed that during this special night was when the world of the living and the world of the dead was at its closest point, even touching each other.

Imagine the ancient and superstitious Europe; they were afraid to go out because they could be assaulted by evil spirits. Those who dared to go out at night disguised themselves with the intention of repelling or confusing those ghosts.

Now that we know why we have to disguise ourselves in Halloween, we are going to choose a suitable costume so that no evil entity approaches us. Let’s see below the most original costumes and some classics:

Simple and effective costume idea: Pirate

Pirates of the Caribbean movies turned the dreaded pirates into funny characters, why not become one of them and animate the party?
