If you have not asked your guests to come in Hallowe’en costume, start off your party by presenting each guest with some sort of simple costume and cap. You can slap them together in no time if you use some of the designs of crepe paper printed in Hallowe’en patterns. They will add so much to the enjoyment of your guests that you will be more than repaid for your efforts.
Costumes that are called “slip-over” will answer beautifully if you must make enough costumes for the whole crowd. You
can make two from one fold of crepe paper, and it will not take more than ten or fifteen minutes to make one, so the expenditure of either time or money will be negligible. A .
piece of crepe paper twice the length from shoulder to the waist line or below, with an oval piece cut out for the neck, is the foundation. To it you may fasten two extra gathered pieces for the skirt, a bit of fringed paper on either side for trimming, or the slip-over may be perfectly plain and held in place with a crepe paper sash.
For the boys, slip-over jumpers may be made, or some simple
ruffles that may be tied around neck and wrists to form imps’ costumes.
