It's that time of year again when we start to figure out what costume is going to be the most unique and memorable of the Halloween party. Some of us will already be in panic - we want to look our best but don't know what it takes to stand out in a crowd of witches and ghouls. Some careful planning will have you on the right road (a yellow brick one if you like). Sometimes we get so wrapped up in it all that we forget the little things. It might just be those little things and final touches that make our outfit unforgettable. Wigs and masks, among other accessories are what really transform us into flesh-eating zombies and blood sucking vamps!

For every costume, there will be numerous suitable wigs and masks to complete the look. Even if your usual hair color is bright green or red, (there will be some!) Halloween is all about looking 'different', dressing up to reveal your inner dark side and letting it show through whacky and original accessory pieces.

With the emphasis on wigs and masks, the market for Halloween ensembles have become bigger and bigger each year. Suppliers of Halloween accessories battle it out to come up with the most unusual and elaborate additions to every possible costume you can imagine. This is all done, of course, in our favor. We no longer have to fear of arriving to parties with the same Morticia Adams wig or Frankenstein mask as your neighbor or best friend. With the millions of choices out there, there is no reason why you shouldn't explore the possibilities and give your stunning costumes the final glamorous twist it deserves!

Wigs are often designed using real human hair or from synthetic material. Because we don't intend to realistic at Halloween time, synthetic materials are often favored for more unusual styles not easily achieved with real hair. They can be optimized with glitter and metallic strands. You might have to pay a little extra to have a longer lasting wig that doesn't look too 'plastic', but it will be worth it when you can re-use it for other likewise events.

When choosing a mask, stray away from anything too scary if you're going to have children at the party. Your own comfort is also important to consider - you don't want to spend the night pushing masks up or down so you can see through them. If you can, try them on before you buy and make sure you can actually breathe well in the thing! Where there is a party, there are usually food and drinks, so anything too extravagant and difficult to remove will only be frustrating in the end.
