Halloween Spider Poncho Reviewed

Easy Halloween Costume Idea For Women

Before you know it Halloween will be upon us. Reviewing a Spider Poncho is my self-imposed task for today. It makes for a simple costume to wear this year whether you are going to a costume party or just taking your little "ghouls" out for trick or treating. It is also something that can be worn in future years by yourself or even the children as they grow.

I like the idea of using a poncho as a way to be festive because it can serve two purposes. If it looks like a spider and it's web it of course fits the costume criteria. If the weather happens to be cool (it most likely will be) then it will also  help to keep you warm. The added bonus is that you can throw it over the top of whatever you are wearing making the getting ready task short and simple. You will not have to spend hours getting yourself ready besides dressing the kiddos.

Of course you can embellish the look in a lot of different ways. Add a black wig and use some goth looking make-up. It might be fun to add some fake webbing to the wig, too! Wear black boots if you have them or just throw on a pair of black jeans. You can make it as easy as you want or really get creative to look like a walking spider web.

I started looking for something to do with spiders for this year because I have kind of become obsessed with arachnids since I published my first two books. If you happen to have read one or both, you know that spiders play a role in a minor way with both Charlotte and Clay. As I am writing the third in the series, spiders will once again creep into the story line.

So, if you are looking for something fun yet simple to dress-up in this Halloween; I recommend something like a Spider Poncho that will be easy on your wallet and to wear. Have you begun to think of what you will dress like this year?

  1. Cute idea for sure. I love getting out something wild and wonderful for Halloween. Witches work well for me. My wig, long black cape and some really funky green makeup for my oh so wonderful witchy face.....But this might work for me too! I love it! Thanks Bev, you've given me another option for this year.

  2. Oh, I love the design with the scalloped edge that resembles a web. Very, very cool! It really would be the perfect quick costume even if you are just handing out candy. Truly a great way to get into the Halloween mood without the huge cost of a complete costume. About your books, I look forward to the 3rd book in the series being released and I did want to comment, where there is a barn, of course there are spiders.

  4. Oh I love the idea of a Halloween poncho. You've just triggered a memory, when I was a young girl I used to wear ponchos all the time and loved how comfortable they were. What a good idea to wear for when you're handing out candy.
