Adult Halloween Costumes of a Different Kind

When you think of adult Halloween costumes you think of the obvious naughty type or the short skirts and costumes showing a lot of leg, or whatever else.

I thought in this batch of adult Halloween costumes we could look at different types that are a lot of fun but take a different path and present more wholesome themes.

Even so, they're still a lot of fun and goofy, and really great attention-getters.

I've found that when you look across different age groups, it's amazing how similar in themes the costumes are, although the look of the costume is much different.

For example, everyone continues to like to dress as pirates, Tinkerbell and vampires; themes that are prevalent in pop culture. And so costumes reflect those themes across a number of age groups, albeit, in less tense ways the younger they get.

So here are a number of adult Halloween costumes to give you some ideas on what to wear this year.

    Angel costumes are a lot of fun to wear, as the array of choices for angels of the heavenly type are extensive, and there's something for everyone, including adults, children, and even a pet that we may think of as a saint. The other side of that...

The first thing I thought when I looked at this is you're going to be hot. But it depends on where you live and what the conditions are.

But the penguin costume is great looking, and if there's food to be had you'll have difficulty with those paddles for arms. Fish anyone?

Flamingo Adult Halloween Costume

Keeping with a bird theme, this is really a clever flamingo Halloween costume. The neck is obviously the key element and compelling part of the costume, but that beak on the forehead and the feet are also a lot of fun.

Every Halloween party needs to have a mummy there (no, not your mommy), and this is a good costume to fill that need.

While the tattered clothes look good, it's the face that I really like. It will capture a few looks and comments at any party I'm sure.

The colors of this Gothic Halloween costume captures some of the general culture of Goth, and is a good costume to differentiate yourself from potentially having the same costume or something very similar. Nice contrasting colors to capture the Gothic dark feel.

Halloween costume for costume ball

This is a gorgeous costume of a woman about to attend a costume ball. It's really beautiful and enchanting, and something that will catch the eye of everyone in the room; especially if you can wear it like this woman can. Cute hair with it too.

I like the way you can take a mask and use it playfully and and in a flirting manner as women of the past did in these types of costume situations.
