Call in to speak with the host
Kick off the Joy of the holiday season with a Happy Halloween Fashion Show. Get out the cameras and have a Halloween fashion show. A treat for all ages. Bring your own camera is the message on the invite. You'll be surprised to learn a friend is a budding photographer.
Focus on a best costume contest and a best photo contest. Have everyone contribute a dollar, and divide the money into two categories. The winners of best costume and best photo gets the money.
Your Halloween party will have added fun with all the fashion posing that will be going on. Encourage guest to take some unposed for photos.
Create a fashion runway. Use ribbon to designate the runway area, or line up chairs, or place graffiti on the area, or hang something from the ceiling to highlight the runway. Even use of a spot light can create a runway atmosphere. Make it bold and your guest will talk about it for months.
Suggest to guest that the purchase a costume, make a costume or use an outfit you already have. Purchasing an outfit that can be worn later is a good use of money. They can buy an outfit and add accessories or use an outfit they already have and buy a Halloween accessory for the event.
Turn almost any outfit into a Halloween fashion by adding accessories like a witches hat, tiger tail, white sheet, Dracula cape, mask, etc.
Music can be current, music from a time gone, Halloween music, or music your guest might enjoy for whatever reason.
It's good to talk.
