Scary Halloween costumes, as well as pumpkins, are symbolic for Halloween. Initially it was thought that the costume should scare the evil spirits so that they do not desire a living soul, but over time these traditions are no longer valid, and the people began to wear spooky and frightening costumes more in the spirit of a Halloween carnival.
Scary Halloween costumes and characters
We have collected some of the most popular characters for scary Halloween costumes. The zombies’ roots can be traced back to in the religious rituals of voodoo practiced by the inhabitants of Jamaica, Trinidad, Cuba and other Caribbean islands, as well as West Africa. The most famous of all the vampires is the Count of Dracula, although legends of blood-sucking creatures, hunting for fresh blood, were known in Babylon and ancient India. Skeletons are another appropriate symbol and they draw the attention of some of the most famous artists and designers.

Ghosts are especially popular not only with adults but with children as they can be anything from funny to horrifying.
