There are two types of people in the world. The first group is people who get sad when summer is over, because it means their favorite time of year has been and gone. The second are the people who've been waiting for fall to arrive since the last time it ended, because they just can't wait for Halloween! For those people, their favorite time of year is right now. The nights are getting darker, there's a chill in the air, and Halloween is just around the corner.

Make no mistake about it: Halloween is party season. Over 175 million Americans celebrated Halloween last year. For a lot of people, it’s the official start of the countdown to Christmas. We have Halloween in October, Thanksgiving in November, and Christmas in December. That’s three big reasons to celebrate in three months, and so it’s only right to start things off with a bang!

If you're anything like us, you'll be embracing the occasion, and either organizing or attending a Halloween costume party. That isn't something you want to gamble with. Nobody wants to be wearing the same costume as everybody else, or looking like they've put no thought into what they're wearing. The only Halloween-themed gambling anyone should be getting involved with is the 'Trick Or Treat' slot you'll find at leading mobile slots websites (there's even a mobile slots game based on the Halloween movie - it seems that Halloween is even more popular with slots casino players than it is with everyone else!). To avoid that possibility, you might want to consider one of the creative Halloween costume ideas we've outlined below.

Men In Black

Let's start off with something absolutely everyone can do. If you're not the sort of person who likes to go over the top with a costume, you could pretend to be one of the Men in Black (or Women in Black - the films don't discriminate). All you need to pull this costume idea off is a black suit, a white shirt, a black tie, and some black sunglasses. You probably have all of those items hanging around at home already! As an added twist, if someone asks you why you've come dressed as a science fiction character for Halloween, you can just remind them how horrifying the reviews for the most recent movie were. It works as both a costume and a joke!

French KISS

We’re quite proud of this idea. Again, it works as both a costume and a joke. The first thing you need to do is make yourself look as French as possible. You’ll need a beret and a striped shirt as a base minimum. A neckerchief sometimes helps as well, as do suspenders for men. Just in case people aren’t getting the hint, consider carrying a baguette around with you. You can always put it down once the novelty has worn off. The finishing touch is your face paint - which, of course, you’ll model on Gene Simmons. That’s right, it’s KISS, but French! If people don’t get the joke, question why you’re friends with them in the first place.

Devil Wears Prada

Halloween is the one time of the year where it's socially acceptable to embrace all things Satanic, so why not go the whole hog and become the Devil him or herself? While you're at it, why not turn the costume into a pun? You could dress as Meryl Streep's character from the famous movie, but that's an expensive way to go with it. Instead, buy yourself some Devil horns and some red face paint. Apply the face paint, put the horns on, and then add the perfect accessory. All you need is a Prada t-shirt. If that's not practical, then get a plain t-shirt and write 'Prada' on it. Now, you're a Devil who wears Prada? Get it? Good. Everyone else will, too.

Taco Belle

Technically speaking, this look is reserved for women, but it might actually be funnier if men do it, so give it some consideration. Once again, we're taking the pun approach to costumes. Anyone can turn up to a party dressed as a witch or a vampire. Not everyone can pull off a witty joke. For the first part of your costume, base your look on Belle from 'Beauty and the Beast.' We're going to assume you've seen the film, but if you haven't, all you really need is a white shirt and a blue dress. Think 'milkmaid' if you're unsure. You'll also need red hair (or a wig) tied back in a French plait. When you've got all that sorted, get yourself a taco (real or fake) to carry around with you for the evening. Congratulations - you're now Taco Belle!

Jon Snow White

This look will probably be more expensive to put together than the rest, but it will have the most visual impact of all of them. You're going to need to shell out for two costumes unless you can find a way to make them at home. Fortunately, both costumes are readily available from most stores that specialize in such things. You've probably already guessed from the name, but the first is a Snow White costume. It doesn't matter if it isn't too elaborate; most of it will be covered up anyway. After that, get yourself a costume of the character Jon Snow from 'Game of Thrones.' Put the black cloak and gloves of the Jon Snow costume over the Snow White costume, pick up your sword, and you're done. It would also help if you have long black hair and a beard - but again, both things are easily bought if you don't already have them.

Whichever of these five costumes you choose, you can rest assured that nobody else at the party is going to turn up looking like you do. All the witches, vampires, killer clowns, and blood-covered doctors and nurses will be looking at you in envy. We even think you might be in with a chance of winning the 'best costume' competition if there's one running. Happy Halloween!
