Halloween Costumes for Teens - Tips for Choosing and Costume Ideas for Teenage Boys and Girls

Are you seeking inspiration and ideas for Halloween costumes for teens?

If you're looking for a Halloween costume for your teenager, it can be really frustrating because your daughter probably wants to be something far sexier than you're comfortable allowing, and your son - well, if they're into dressing up, then chances are that they are pretty good sports about the whole thing. You need some great ideas that don't require too much money, but will still be creative and fun.

One of the best things you can do with your teenage girl is to modify the costume idea to meet the needs of both parent and teen. Here are some ideas for Halloween costumes for teen girls which could help:

  • If your teenager wants to be a "cute" witch, then help her to modify the costume to meet both of your needs. Make it trendy by choosing knee high boots that lace up and a skirt that doesn't look like she should be wearing bloomers with it. Choose tops that are funky and fun and look "witchy", but will be suitable for both of you.

  • The Twilight series is big these days, so if your teen is into the series, encourage your teen to dress like one of these characters. Help her to put the costume together without trying to stomp the cool factor.

Need tips to help you have a peaceful costume choosing process? Take a look at these:

  • When choosing Halloween costumes for teens, remember that your teenager doesn't want to be dressed like a baby. She doesn't want you hovering and she doesn't want you squashing her style. So, just like you would give her ideas for her clothes, and establish clear guidelines for her everyday clothing, you should do the same for her costume.

  • Don't be too cheesy. It's probably okay for you to wear a "dorky" costume because you're "old", but remember that she has a reputation to uphold, so don't ask her to be a vending machine when you know she'll be laughed out of the school.

Much of the time, teenage boys are much easier to help get going with a costume, so here are some fun ideas for Halloween costumes for teen boys that you and your teen can consider:

  • Some boys love to be creepy zombies. Plus, it's one of the easiest of them to create. Shred an old shirt and shorts or pants - enough to let some pasty rotting flesh (with the help of makeup) show through. Goop the hair so it looks dirty and lanky. Paint the face to look pale and bruised. Be sure to add the dark circles beneath the eyes and add other gory details.

  • A common costume for teenage boys is to dress up like a girl. This idea for Halloween costumes for teen boys is good fun when you over-do it with the blue eye shadow and red lipstick. Make sure his hairy legs stick out and everyone will get a good laugh from his costume choice.

  • Mummies, werewolves and vampires are also common costumes for teenage boys to dress up as because they are relatively easy to do and have the potential scare factor they seek.

Did any of the above ideas for Halloween costumes for teens appeal to you?

Let your teens get creative when it comes to costumes so they enjoy the process, but be sure to set clear guidelines as to what you will - and will not - allow them to wear. This way, you can feel good about the costumes they are choosing, and they get to be "who they are".

Halloween can be a win-win with great costumes and fun when you take a few steps to make choosing Halloween costumes for teens an easy process.
