Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Who else loves Halloween? I’m all for the spooky and creepy decorations, and most people who know me know that I love dressing up! Who all is trying to decide what to do for Halloween this year? In this post, I’ll introduce some of the Halloween festivals where you can show off your creative costumes, and I will also post some costume ideas based off clothes from Freedom Rave Wear!
Escape: Psycho Circus
Escape: Psycho Circus has a diverse lineup, and is happening over two days. This festival is for you if you like all things scary and Halloween. Rumor has it that their haunted house, The Asylum is really scary and not for the faint of heart!

Are you ready for dancing clowns and spooky rides? Freaknight Festival is located in Seattle, and has some big names on the lineup such as Marshmello, Steve Aoki, and Yellowclaw!

Halloween Costume Inspirations
Fierce Dragon/ Mother of Dragons
Are you looking for a costume to coordinate with your festie bestie? Look no further! With Freedom Rave Wear’s Prehistoric Collection and Juicy Collection, you and your best friend can look fierce together. For the Fierce Dragon look, you can rock the Jurassic V Free Bra Top, Jurassic Sequin Super-Mini Skirt, Jurassic V High Waisted Brazilian Bottoms, and a beautiful pair of wings made by Fairy Light Couture.
For the Mother of Dragons look, you can check out Freedom Rave Wear for the Dragonfruit Baelien Sleeves, Dragonfruit Extra Mile Bralette, Dragonfruit High Waisted Brazilian Bottoms, and Dragonfruit Leg Ties. Don’t forget to spice up your outfits with some accessories like face gems and glitter. (A leash and collar would be a cute add-on for the dragon costume!).
If you like wearing sparkly accessories and holographic clothes, this costume is perfect for you! Freedom Rave Wear just started selling bodychains and harnesses, so this would be a cute look if you want to incorporate that. From Freedom Rave Wear, this look includes the Moonlight Holo Curshin’ Velvet High Waisted Brazilian Bottoms, Warrior Princess Belt and Princess Armor Harness Top. The Holographic Unicorn Headband is from Fairy Light Couture, and will provide the finishing touches to complete this outfit!
If you’re like me and love wearing black, this look will bring out the spooky side of you. This costume is mostly based on Freedom Rave Wear’s Dark and Dangerous Collection, and includes the Two-Piece Bondage Bra and Skirt Set, Jezebel V Free High Waisted Brazilian Bottoms, and the Jezebel V Free Bra Top. To add finishing touches to this costume, add a headpiece like the Temptress Headdress from Dolls Kill.
I hope everyone has an amazing Halloween this year! Stay spooky, and if you wear any clothes from Freedom Rave Wear, don’t forget to tag @freedomravewear on Instagram so we can all admire your costumes!
