Witch Costume - Let's not forget one of the symbols of Halloween; the witches. To be honest, this is not a very unique idea, but if you manage to add some new elements to this costume you will probably get the wanted effects.

Just like most costumes, they can be scary or sexy. What is good about this costumes is that its suitable for slender women or woman with an few extra pounds.

The Roaring 20s - Recent remakes of films such as The Great Gatsby have repeatedly brought the exciting lifestyle of the flapper era back to the forefront of our imaginations. The flapper girl, complete with her embellished headbands, glossy locks, and eye-catching shimmery dresses is a perfect costume idea for the female who wishes to attain a more feminine and fun-loving look on Halloween.

Amazon Warrior - Women love the Amazon Warrior costume because it makes them look tough and sexy at the same time. There are a lot of ways you can create an Amazon Warrior costume, but letís just look at the most basic way of making it.

All you need is a low-cut brown or black dress and a bronze style bra to wear over the dress. You can add optional accessories too like a bronze crown, wrist plates, and a toy sword. Finally, you can finish the look with some black or brown high leg boots.

French Maid - French maids were not traditionally supposed to look sexy, but the modernization of the French maid costume made them appear that way. If you want to create a French maid costume for yourself, you will need a black dress and a short skirt which both have white trim. Then you can just have fun with the other clothing items and accessories.

Try using long white or black stockings, a black ruffled headpiece, black high heels, a white colored half-apron, and a feather duster. This combination will certainly turn heads at any party. Of course, if you want the traditional French maid look, then just use a longer skirt and dress instead.

Mime Costume - Creepy and intriguing at the same time, mimes have been entertaining people with their unique strangeness for decades. A mime costume is an interesting twist for the adult party-goer, if done right. You can turn a somewhat grim idea into an attractive one with the right clothing and face paint. A good thought is to purchase a mime outfit from a costume shop and give it a few personal touches according to the wearer's preference.

Pirate - Who says that pirate costumes can be worn only by men? Pirate costumes look equally good or even better on women. They should decide whether they want to look more sexy or scary and start adjusting their costumes. In most cases women use short skirts for this purpose and interesting hat and boots. Don't hesitate to use a hook or to cover one of your eyes.

Cleopatra - Cleopatra ruled Ancient Egypt for 21 years before it was taken over by the Roman Empire. She was a queen that has remained popular throughout history for thousands of years. Her appearance was also very captivating, which is what makes a Cleopatra costume fun to wear.

To create this costume, you will need a white satin dress, a sequin headdress, gold armbands, gold cuffs, soft gold colored belt, and gold sheer capes. You can also have fun with the jewelry additions if you want, such as the necklaces, earrings, and so on.
