Why do people dress up on Halloween? Many people do not know the origins of this anymore. Halloween is celebrated on October 31. The next day according to ‘All Hallows (Souls) Day’ So the night before was believed that souls would rise from the dead and mix with the living. Evil spirits would be looking for mischief. But if people dress in costume, the idea is that the spirits cannot recognise humans and will leave them alone.
This is why people either dress up as evil or spooky characters, such as zombies or ghosts, or else just dress up in any costume. Our website has many costumes including plus size Halloween costumes for women as well as fancy dress for men and children.
