    How to choose a Halloween costume?

    It is beyond dispute that Halloween is a very striking event because of masquerade. Probably Halloween is the next worldwide famous carnival after the Mardi Gras and Brazilian Carnival. It’s unlikely to meet someone in the same dress, because the variety of costumes and styles are enormous: witches, devils, vampires, werewolves, zombies, skeletons and other scary creatures. All of them have different sizes and are available for kids, teens and adults. The fashion for grown-ups has the following trends:

    • The classic spooky costumes of folklore and fairy tales characters, e.g. vampires, ghosts, etc.
    • Costumes of scary movie, e.g. Freddie Kruger, Frankenstein, Chucky, King Kong, Hannibal Lecter, etc.
    • Universal costumes probably look less appropriate for a Halloween, but it’s better than absence of a costume. Some examples of universal costumes: a Pirate, Musketeer, Greek goddess, Viking, Pharaoh, Roman Empress, uniform dress (maiden, police officer, nurse), etc.

    Each costume can have different variations from realistic scary outfit to sexy extravagant fancy dresses.

    The most effective appearance requires a mask or a special make-up. The mask can cover only the face (generally plastic) or be a complete full head skintight mask usually made of latex. The last gives more realistic outlook. A make-up can be simple or more sophisticated which become a kind of a face art or body painting.

      How to choose a place to celebrate Halloween in Dubai?

      While there are no official national Halloween events, the Halloween themed parties and evenings are available in over a dozen of local dance clubs, dance studios and restaurants. Most of them start right on the Halloween - 31th of October, or a day before. Usually all of them require booking beforehand.

      A good place to celebrate Halloween should have:

      • A dress code, so that every guest is part of the Halloween party.
      • Contests, games and other activities, e.g. a “Slick chick Halloween beauty contest” which is popular in the USA.
      • Pleasant music and dance floor.
      • A well thought-out scenario and plan of the party, so that everybody get involved and find something suitable for him or her.
      • Some shows performed by professional staff.
      • Drinks and snacks.

      If you want to have a unique and memorable Halloween party, we suggest going to a party organized by the Dance For You in Dubai, a dance school with the biggest dance floor in UAE. There you can enjoy ballroom dancing with Count Dracula, dance tango with Joker, or salsa with Vamiprella – all of them are professional dance teachers and choreographers. Besides couple and group dances, the Halloween scenario is full of dance shows, contests and other activities suitable for those who are not eager to dance. For more information about this party read the review “Halloween in Dubai: Ballroom Dancing”.
