3 Steps to Picking Out a Contest-Ready Halloween Costume

If you’re trying to win a Halloween costume contest at a party, don’t worry – you’re definitely in good company. In fact, if you’re serious about taking the top prize, then you already know that competition is pretty stiff for that prize money or set of gifts. This means that you can’t just pick up any old costume and hope that you will be the talk of the party. You have to get really strategic if you want to win.
However, it can be pretty difficult to make sure that you have a contest-ready Halloween costume, let alone one that could potentially take the top prize. Thankfully, it’s not total rocket science — you can pick out a contest-ready Halloween costume that will definitely get you noticed. There are essentially three steps to picking out a contest-ready Halloween costume that is sure to make everyone take notice of you at the party.
First, you don’t want to just run out and get a costume from the costume shop. You might not want to make your own costume at first, but if you look at just about every Halloween party that’s had a big cash prize for first place, you’ll find that it’s the people that had a custom costume made that usually end up taking the top spot. Will you have to invest some time and a little bit of money into this? Certainly — but if the first place prize is worth it to you, you might want to just go ahead and push through.
Next, you will need to make sure that you give yourself plenty of time before the Halloween party is to begin to get the costume that you want. You can choose pretty much any theme you want, but some themes still do better than others. For example, if your costume refers to an inside joke between you and your friends, that’s something that’s not going to really get you the top prize at all. It’s better to make sure that you pick a costume that is easily understood by anyone that has to see you at the party.
Finally, you will need to make sure that you are thinking about the contest rules at all times. Most people get so wrapped up into what they want to go to the costume party as that they don’t think about whether or not their costume will actually violate the rules. For example, if you know that you are going to a party where there will also be children, you don’t want to pull out your sexiest Halloween costume — this will only make things harder for you in the long run, and could even cost you that first place spot you have your eye on.
Overall, picking out a contest-ready Halloween costume isn’t really that difficult — you just need to know what you want to do and go from there!
