Top 4 Halloween Accessories

 

My Top Halloween Choices – Accessories


Whether it’s the finishing touch to your costume or even the centre piece of the look, I cannot stress enough the importance of accessories in Halloween. These items are often overlooked, despite stepping up your costume game from a 7 to a 10. On top of that, your accessories will never ‘not fit’ or ‘look weird on me’. In other words, you can never fail. With pages on end of options, here are only a handful of accessories that stood out for me.

Yeti Hat
Pick #1 :
Yeti
Hat



This Yeti Hat may be the cutest accessory I’ve ever encountered. It really speaks for itself. The furry hat is comfortable and unbelievably adorable. It can even be worn alone for a cute yet understated look this Halloween. Out of all the accessories listed below, this one is by far my personal favourite.

Blank Black Eyes Doll Mask
Pick #2 :
Blank Black Eyes
Doll Mask



If there’s one thing to know about me is that I hate scary movies. I’m what a six year might call, a scaredy cat. This Blank Black Eyes Doll mask is probably one of the most terrifying masks out there. For pranksters and thrill-seekers, this accessory is a must-have.

Ghost Contact Eyes
Pick #3 :
White/Grey Ghost
Contact Lenses



They say eyes are the window to the soul, so why not dress up them up this Halloween? You could be wearing a potato sac and people will be captured with these White/Grey Ghost contact lenses. Here at Oya Costumes, we have a wide selection of coloured contact lenses, but these ones really caught my eye. The grey colour contrasting the black pupil is definitely something I want to try out this Halloween.

Jurassic World T-Rex Vinyl Mask Adult
Pick #4 :
Jurassic World
T-Rex Vinyl Mask



This year, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic World hit the box office and was a massive success. With it’s state of the art graphic design it’s easy to see why the fourth installment set the record for the biggest opening weekend in North America. This high quality mask too brings the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar back to life while waiting impatiently for the sequel in 2018.

SuperGirl | An Iconic Superhero Costume for Women

 

When the trailer of Super Girl was released this may, every feminist (myself included) jumped out of their seats in anticipation. While traditional superhero movies will always have a place in our hearts here at Oya Costumes, this spin on the iconic film Superman has all of us intrigued. In the past decades, despite trying the modernize the plot lines, superhero movies tend to fall into the repetitive pattern of a masculine, inhumanly buff guy saving the world as well as his gorgeous love interest. While the female characters have become smarter and more independent over the years, they has never taken centre stage in major heroic films. This new series by CBS on the other hand has all the traditional superhero elements while dealing with real feminist questions.

 

Shouldn’t she be called superwoman?

What do you think is so bad about girl? I’m a girl and your boss and powerful and rich and hot and smart. So if you perceive SuperGirl as anything else than excellent then isn’t the real problem you?

 

The level of girl power is through the roof with the trailer alone. Its a good reminder to the general audience that women are too often unjustly categorized and stereotyped. The series is going to bring a breath of fresh air to a often male dominated genre. Debuting this October, this series has given us even more reason to look forward to this Halloween season. Be sure to check out our Super Girl costumes to be ahead of the pack. Available in multiple versions for every age group, any girl of any age can channel their girl power this Halloween.

Lady Lisa Pixels CostumeAre you looking for a fun idea for a Halloween costume? Kids and adults alike can get into the world of retro gaming with our wonderful Pixels costumes! Whether you want to become an arcade game, villain or gamer, we’ve got what you need.

And we’ve got costumes to match all of it!

So many different video game characters were featured in this film, and we can turn you into them! We’ve also got some brand new Arcader outfits coming your way, as well as Lisa’s outfit, from the movie.

You could even become an entire arcade game with the Dojo Master costume, if you wish! These outfits are great for 2015 movie-themed parties, or video game-themed parties alike! Sad about your favourite character not appearing in the movie? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
