It’s time to start the celebrations and preparations for Halloween coming up. Here on the Westminster Towers Blog, we want to share some ideas on how you can celebrate Halloween this month. This week we have costume and dessert ideas. Watch out for our post next week with more Halloween ideas. We hope you enjoy the celebrations this month here in your Tacoma, WA apartment.


Costume Ideas



This costume requires items that you may already have at home. Use makeup to create stitches on your face and round red cheeks. Wear your hair in braids or wear it messy, stick some hay in your clothes, wear a plaid button up shirt with jeans or overalls, and you’re set!


Super Mario

Choose a favorite character from the Mario franchise such as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, Wario, Waluigi, Princess Daisy, Birdo, Donkey Kong, or any of the other characters. This is a great theme for a large group of people or if you have children. Enjoy this theme and have fun. Wahoo!



Pick up a Hawaiian t-shirt from a local thrift store for an easy costume. Add a camera/video recorder around your neck, a wide brimmed hat, khaki shorts, tennis shoes, sunglasses, and you’re ready.
