Now Halloween approaches and presents an opportunity for children and children at heart to dress up as various cartoon characters. With Japanese animated programs (aka anime) being a huge hit on American shores, anime costumes are also a viable cartoon costume choice. I've noticed a severe lack of guides for doing specific anime costumes on Associated Content and am working to fix that problem. Until I get my anime costumes published, here are my ten favorite cartoon and anime costumes on Associated Content in no particular order.
One of my most memorable things to do for Halloween was dress up as my favorite cartoon character for trick or treating. Perhaps this childish ordeal of being able to escape the monotony of reality in exchange for taking the persona of the character whose costume I was wearing while getting free candy out of the whole deal is what inspired me to take costuming as a hobby during my adult years.
