Halloween the dead is arriving

It was believed that on this day, the line that divided the world of the living and the dead narrowed, allowing the spirits to pass through to the world of the living. The spirits of the family were guests and welcomed, while the unwanted were removed by means of masks and costumes to scare them away.

Halloween took force in the United States and Canada until 1921, and was internationalized until the 70s and 80s, thanks to the cinema. Today celebrated as we all know, costume parties, trick or treating, houses “haunted” horror movie marathons and firefighter costumes sexy-cop, sexy-witch, sexy-quesadilla, etc.

Well, after this little story of Halloween, we bring you some options costumes more ad hoc to a “night of terror” if they are tired of the typical costume ghost, Dracula, fireman, etc.
