Halloween costumes can be a source of fun and a great way to celebrate the season, but experts say they should only be worn when absolutely necessary.
There are different levels of costume, ranging from a cute dress to a full-on costume.
“There are all kinds of different costumes that people can wear, and so the important thing is to look at how they suit the person that you are with,” Dr Sarah Tait from the School of Arts and Media at Melbourne University told the ABC.
“If you are wearing a lot of sparkly stuff or if you are dressed in a lot, you may want to do that in a more formal setting, but the costume should be for the occasion.”

A dress that is appropriate for a family gathering and appropriate for Halloween is a must.
Dr Tait says a costume should have “the same function as the person who wears it”, which means it should be a bit different to what the person wearing it is wearing, and a costume shouldn’t be too formal.
“That means it has to be a little bit of a shock for the person you’re going to be with.”
You don’t want to wear a lot more than you think you need to wear, but don’t be afraid to wear less,” she said.”
And also don’t try to go too big, because it’s going to look ridiculous in your face.
“Dr Tay says there are certain costumes that are really suited to a Halloween party, such as a Halloween themed costume, but that there are other costumes that don’t have the same appeal as they do for the big party.”
There is one that has a lot to do with blackface,” she explained.”
I don’t know if it’s true or not, but a lot people in the black community dress up as black people.
“So if you’re wearing a costume that is blackface, you’re doing a blackface thing.”
If you’re not sure what you want to look like, or you don’t like a certain costume, then Dr Tait recommends choosing a different costume.
Dr Tays dress can include black, blue, red, white, and grey, and the idea is to make sure the costume has a specific function for the party.
She says people can go for a costume with a more traditional style that doesn’t have that much sparkle or sparkle effects.
“The thing that really separates a costume is the colour of the fabric,” she says.
“For the party it’s very important that you don, if you don´t want to make a costume look like a costume you donít want a dress that has too much sparkles or a colour that has that, but there is another thing that is important to remember: it’s a costume, not just a look.”
