Halloween’s  splash of color

With the coming Escape Halloween event, choosing what to wear can be easy; choosing what color to wear can be very tricky especially for women. Halloween is a celebration full of pomp and most importantly; color. The color orange dominates the scene followed by black. This does not mean that you are constrained to orange and black. Color adds flavor to anything, it gives objects spice. Halloween calls for color in every way. From the trick, treating to the dress and the scare, other than on Halloween, color is a very important aspect for any woman’s outfit. Adding some color to an outfit does not mean adding a rainbow to the outfit; sometimes one color will do the trick. Every color is associated with a specific feeling or attribute.


The best Halloween color options are; solid fills, neon colors and mix and matched color. Solid fills: These types of color are best if the impression being made is to be bold. Solid fills work greatly with accessories such as belts which breaks the monotony. The best Halloween solid fill is that which can be easily identified with the character of the thing being impersonated. Nuns and nurses are easily associated with white colors so best wear these colors.

Neon colors are best used on clothes for knight scenes. These types of colors are able to create optical illusions whereby the color seems to spread. Neon colors are made up of the primary and secondary colors but bright colors seem to have a better effect when used as neon colors. These include; red, orange, green, yellow among others. Neon color can be used on any type or part of a cloth.

Mix matched color; the rule for mix and matching color is that one of the colors used has to dominate in the outfit. Mix matched colors do not have to be both dull, both bright or one dull and the other bright. The choice lies mostly with the wearer. Mix matching color breaks the monotony created by solid fills and also adds the flavor to any outfit. Two or more colors can exist in one outfit as a pattern, in stripes or in patches which especially works well for rug doll female costumes.

Choosing colors can be very demanding especially since it is for a Halloween costume. As a lady, the following tips could come in handy and remember you can always find the best outfits at our store;
