Neopia's Most Craziest, Spiffest, Finest Halloween Costumes
HAUNTED WOODS – The bells chime, signaling the coming of the most revered night
of the year... Yes, dear reader, you guessed it! It’s Halloween, the time to put
on costumes, go around the neighborhood for trick-or-treating, and hope not to
be pelted by ferocious neggs.
If you take a look in your closet, you’ll find that the average Neopian probably
has something boring like a spooky faerie costume for Halloween... Well, fear
not, dear Neopians, for this article might just be the help you need to pick
out a proper costume (or even better, make one yourself!) for Halloween.
Are you ready? Get out the needles while you’re sewing, I mean, reading, because
this article is about to provide some of Neopia’s most Craziest, Whackiest,
Fine and Traditional costumes. (All in accordance to the title, so please, Lawyerbot-dress-ups,
don’t sue me!)
Neopia’s Craziest Halloween Costumes
The Sloth-a-drone Costume – This costume consists of bits and pieces
of Sloth interspersed with one of his machine drones, perfect for spreading
terror around Halloween. Sloth fans, make sure you grab a well-oiled piece of
machinery to add on this so it’ll look extra authentic. As for the material,
black velvet or anything else dark, rich and elegant should suffice. Don’t forget
the green chicken-head headdress that is trademarked Sloth. (Not to mention
his ballet lesson tutu skirt.) The neighbors will be guaranteed to scream (or
laugh) upon the sight of this costume!
The Valentine Faerie Costume – Okay, so there is really no such thing
as the Valentine Faerie, but it’s okay to be creative when it comes to Halloween,
isn’t it? It’s not very hard to imagine how the costume would look, and it’s
actually a bit of personal preference. Just remember that it should be all pink
and red, and go for that cute Valentine Chia look if you want something ‘in’.
A cupid’s arrow (disguised as a magical item) would be the perfect companion.
If you can’t envision it very well, just remember that the key word here is
‘hearts’. The door-openers will be certain to be very awed and rather shocked
by your attire, leaving a lot of room and time for the practical purpose of
The WeewooMeepit (aka Weepit) Halloween Costume – Just imagine Neopia’s
two most cuddly and cute petpets merged together, and you’ll have the Weepit
(or Meewoo) costume! Depending on your taste, it can either be symmetrical by
half, splitting by the sides, or it could be a more even mix. Much is left to
the imagination, but this costume is guaranteed to be a good surprise! Remember
to polish the details, to give the costume a few ruffled pink featherlike tails
and huge, gooey black, beaded eyes (and so on...).
Neopia’s Spiffest Halloween Costumes
The Hero/Villain Costume – Not very hard to guess, as this is another
one of those ‘mix’ costumes which are so terribly in fashion this year. Take
different elements of hero and villain typical attire, and voila, you’ve got
a good costume! The big pro with this costume is the fact that heroes and villains
are very easy to find almost anywhere, and therefore it would not be a big problem
to find material. Just remember that you aren’t supposed to look totally Meridell
or Darigan but a bit of both, and just for fun, why not alternate your speech
every few sentences? Note that this combo would also work with other opposite
themes, such as rich/pirate.
The Gadget Costume – Another wonderful mix-and-match costume... Directions:
Take anything metallic in vicinity that looks like a product of the VirtuPets
Space Station and put it together with glue or ask one of Sloth’s assistants
to help. Make sure that the metal has holes so you can put yourself in it, lest
it not be a costume at all. To get that extra fancy, spiffeh look, use Space
Station Battledome items instead of just plain junk. Whee and whirr from an
Iceray Bracelet for the cheap neighbors who refuse to give treats!
The Stuff Costume – Something rather original and unusual... There’s
always a model of something out there, and this year it’s the Stuff! One of
those eccentric things, the Stuff’s creepy theme does go well together with
Halloween. Those whose favorite color is pink, squeal away all you like! You
see, the Stuff is a pink little (or large) blob of yucky... well, stuff. Just
bundle a few ripped pink plushies together to make it soft and squishy, and
don’t forget to leave room for yourself. Then, take a nice promenade to watch
in glee how the neighbors flee from the ever-so invading Stuff...
Neopia’s Finest Costumes
The Faerie Queen Costume – A rather traditional one, but you know, girls
need something to do at Halloween too! With the faerie queen costume, drape
yourself in purple all you like. Don’t forget the staff, and add a rose for
just the right touch. Note that fine costumes should be finely made with details,
and elaborated greatly on for their beauty. One can also play around with some
alternatives, such as a Faerie Queen Doll costume or perhaps just starring as
the Faerie Queen (TCG)!
The Nox Costume – What is finer at Halloween than a legend of Hubrid
Nox himself? Well, it’s the famous Neopian in the Haunted Woods (also in Neoquest
II), and for one day, you can be like him! Note that Nox has a lot of minions,
so gather up your friends to be Hands and Hearts of Nox. As for Nox himself,
there are lots of fine details such as Color-Me-Blue Face Paint and fake plastic
teeth. The costume should be very elegant with many details, and don’t forget
all that drab blackness which totally signifies Nox. This costume is best suited
for Neopians of small stature, seeing as Nox is a Chia and not very big in size.
Neopia’s Traditional Costumes
The Von (Insert Evil Name Here) Costume – Come on, that’s is such a
traditional thing... Who hasn’t heard of the Von Evil Guy costume? Dress up
as some fancy villain, loads of them around here in the Haunted Woods... There’s
Von Roo, though he is out and about at Halloween, but I’m sure he’d appreciate
copies, and there’s also the fact that a Von Roo costume can be store-bought.
(No more sewing, yay!) There is also the less-famous Von Kougra from the Wheel
of Misfortune, but more evil-looking - perfect for pets who walk on all fours
and still plan on looking evil. Remember to have a lot of black and orange for
this costume, and maybe a fake fang or two.
The Witch Costume – Another costume that could be changed to suit multiple
characters, so this is more of a traditional costume that can be stretched a
bit. Basic requirements: Typical green, glow-in-the dark fur patches to show
that one’s a witch and magical. Black robes or long, billowing garments that
form like a dress. Add a black, pointed hat to that, and perhaps a wooden wand,
and there you have your average witch! Of course, you’re free to choose a famous
Neopian costume, as those are rather popular these days too. Edna the Witch,
with her bubbling cauldron of candy, or maybe Sophie the Swamp Witch?
Well, that’s about it for the costumes, and I hope I’ve entertained you with
this little article of mine. Remember that this is the reason why one should
always keep one’s sewing skills limber, and take your pick. Of course, this
is just a mere introduction, and I’m sure your imaginative mind can think of
nice, odd tidbits and other equally important things when it comes to costume-making.
So what are you waiting for? Make your costume and start asking for candy!
Remember, my friends, that trick-or-treating includes the unstable word ‘trick’,
which means one should always have a good basket of rotten/ferocious/fish neggs
close by. That is the moral of this article, to never go unprepared into a dangerous
house in a ridiculous, possibly hindering costume when trick-or-treating.

"Vampires and ghosts are too common," she mumbled
to herself. A thought occurred to her, and she said aloud, "I know - I'll dress
as a Light Faerie! No one does that around here!"

While the search for Sahkmet may seem innocent enough, we beg of you to understand
what this whole event is doing to our planet. An obsession with this “Lost Desert
