Speaking of Disney movies, Toy Story is back. We thought that Toy Story 3 marked the end of the series, but we were pretty happy when Pixar announced the third sequel for 2019! Another gem in the series, Toy Story 4 brings back the classic characters and mixes in some new favorites. That means Buzz Lightyear costumes and Woody costumes have made a huge comeback. Kids and adults alike will want to relive the classic scenes from their favorite movies. Our Jessie Toy Story costumes are also shaping up to be a great costume idea for girls. The best part about these costumes is that they're entirely family-friendly, so if you're looking for a group costume that everyone can enjoy, then this is definitely the way to go in 2019.

Turn your favorite Instagram filter into an easy costume. To make it, pull up Instagram stories on your phone and select the dog filter. Then, point the phone at a blank surface like a wall, and take a screenshot. This will give you the bottom of the app. Send the screenshot file to a printing or office supplies store to have it blown up and printed on a thick board. Then, cut out a part in the middle for your face. For this filter, use makeup and accessories to recreate the filter's effects.

The practice may have originated in a Celtic festival, held on 31 October–1 November, to mark the beginning of winter. It was called Samhain in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man, and Calan Gaeaf in Wales, Cornwall and Brittany. The festival is believed to have pre-Christian roots. After the Christianization of Ireland in the 5th century, some of these customs may have been retained in the Christian observance of All Hallows' Eve in that region—which continued to be called Samhain/Calan Gaeaf—blending the traditions of their ancestors with Christian ones.[2][3] It was seen as a liminal time, when the spirits or fairies (the Aos Sí), and the souls of the dead, could more easily come into our world.[4] It was believed that the Aos Sí needed to be propitiated to ensure that the people and their livestock survived the winter.
