Halloween and partying; dressing up in fancy costumes; trick or treating. All these are one of the important aspects of the Halloween season and every year you have a wide range of costume choices. Many of the themes will come from movies and others will be based on classical themes (ghosts and ghouls, historical characters and many other different personalities that come of with the witches). This year pirates will again be popular and costumes will include both Pirates of the Caribbean characters as well as traditional (but varied) pirates. The costume side of Halloween is one of the main ingredients. When the party or trick or treating starts everyone will be looking at the costumes. Some will stand out by not being recognizable, others by their originality and others still by how good the costume makes them look. The costume is king. When you walk into the room, the party should stop for a second as everyone turns around and sees you. Whispers and comments of admiration will follow in your wake as you, the pirate, join the party. The costume and your props, including make-up will reflect your personality and creative spirit. That is one of the reasons why pirates are always popular. Halloween has to be a time for fun, sharing and even bonding. In previous Halloween's there must be one that stands out. Perhaps as a child, or in an office party. It does not matter which, just remember for a moment the feelings that made this one particularly good. As you relive it, see your self, perhaps as a pirate (and definitely with your own added touch of originality), and start building up the momentum that will take you to another great Halloween. There will be many themed parties and these will vary according to the organizers inspiration, and some of these will be pirate based, with Captain Sparrow of Pirates of the Caribbean fame, leading the way but also followed by Mr. Turner, Elizabeth Swann and Davy Jones. Now that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is being filmed a lot of interest is being generated. The great thing about Halloween and pirates is that they are made for every age. Grandad can look just fine in one of these costumes and grandma will be devastating as a pirate wench. The kids and adults will all be just a step away from sailing of to the other side of the world in a quest for booty and adventure. Play acting is a great way of enjoying this night and pirates are characters just a little bit larger than life. Halloween is made for fun and fun is made up of good times with the people you want to share with (can you have fun with people you have nothing in common with?). Anticipation is also a good formula for a great night and this anticipation will have a lot to do with how you are feeling. Your costume, the one you chose, will reflect something about you and together with the memories explained above, the pirate (or pirate wench-queen) you are will have taken the first steps to another Halloween that will stand out in your memory. You will find for this years season a host of pirate costumes - these will include the Caribbean Pirates of movie fame (Jack Sparrow, Turner, Miss Swann and others). Some will make you look cute, some just simple dangerous and others sexily attractive - after all danger does have its attractions. Your success is the result of your attitude (built up over great memories or even corrected memories) and how you set off your costume and this means both personality and how you carry it off.
