Masks and Costume Fashions
October 24th by Staff Writer
It is a fascinating experience for women and men, this selecting a Halloween costume can look at the variety of colors endorsed by fashion this season, and the endless variation in designs and patterns and in combinations of colors and materials.
Masks keep pace with fashions in costuming. This season, more than ever before, they are striking and attractive. That is partly because, in the evolution of fashion, masks have become the most conspicuous and hence the most important part of their costumes.
While you are selecting or preparing your new costume, the one thing to bear in mind is that masks need to harmonize with the other details of costume.
The chief ambition this Halloween, in choosing footwear, is that the shoe be a pretty one, to add to the attractiveness of the costume.
The Costume Fashions display of Halloween and costume masks for women and men includes all the best-accepted styles in boots with black or colored tops, and in handsome low-cut effects with short tongue, or straps, some with colored quarters, some plain.
Now is the best time to make your purchases, when the assortment offered for your selection is more complete than it will be late in the season.
In the areas of fashion, costume especially has become so linked in the public eye with the term "fashion". The more general term "costume" has been relegated by many to only mean fancy dress or masquerade wear, while the term "fashion" means clothing generally, and the study of it. This linguistic switch is due to the so-called fashion plates which were produced during the Industrial Revolution, showing novel ways to use new textiles.

One of the most stunning costumes worn by a leader of the beau monde was of silk and chiffon in green, white ruching. An applique of lace adorned the silk, and a vest of the soft white chiffon softened the silk of the bodice. This, too, was trimmed with an applique of cream lace. In the back the seamless vest of chiffon was drawn through a buckle of brilliants, the chifon falling to the skirt in broad sash ends.
