Halloween is traditionally about creepy costumes, but that doesn’t mean you need to stick with what is expected. If you’re not into scary movies and things that go bump in the night, you can go in a different direction. If you’re a fan of glitter, why not use the opportunity to showcase your love of sparkle? Loose glitter are one prismatic way to do it, but don’t forget about face paints, rhinestones and other embellishments.
