When we are little we spend a lot of time dressing up. Whether you are a little girl pretending to be a princess or a young boy imitating a cowboy, dressing up is a part of childhood that many of us share. When we grow up our imaginations are suppressed as we make time for more important things. Few of us grow up to become the things we dreamt about as children. Dressing up in costume gives adults the freedom to be what they wanted to be, even if it is just for pretend. Halloween is a time of year where everyone young and old dresses up. What kind of costume you chose can say a lot about your personality. When women search for costumes they will typically find sexy versions of male uniforms like a "sexy soldier" or "sexy police officer." Women are expected to wear costumes that show a lot of skin, while men have more room to be creative. If you are not into the "sexy look" there are always less revealing costumes available. For youngsters the Disney store offers costumes year round. If your little girl wants to dress like her favorite Disney Princess she can find everything she will need at the Disney store. If your little boy wants to dress like Buzz Lightyear or Woody from Toy Story they offer those costumes as well. If you have a more formal event to go to, you can find what you are looking for at a permanent costume shop. These shops stay open throughout the year and offer quality costume rentals. Whether you are thinking about being a Vampire or Sandy from Grease, these costumes come closer to the actual costumes worn by actors in movies.
