Booster's Costume Creator is Back!

As Halloween approaches, you probably ask a familiar question: What should my costume be this year? For inspiration, try Booster’s Costume Creator, back by popular demand for Halloween 2015. Go back in time as William Shakespeare, Amelia Earhart, or Albert Einstein. While you're at it, why not teach a quick history lesson in a memorable way? It's easy--just click the creator to view all your options, and then have fun learning about an important historical figure as you dress your avatar. When you settle on a combination that looks just right, pick a message and send your bewitching or dashing e-card to all your friends.   Get Started Here: Choose an avatar. Will it be Lily or Mel? You decide. Your chosen avatar will appear on the right side. Pick a background. Our background gallery lets you set the scene in a ghostly castle's hall, in an Egyptian tomb, or even in outer space. Scroll  through your options to pick a perfect background. Craft your costume. Whether you dress your character as a sinister vampire or as Cleopatra, you'll find costume pieces to match. If you like, mix things up and pair Booster's head with Count Dracula's cape or a pirate's legs. You can make your costume as tame or as wild as you like! Send to friends. Make someone's day with a little spooky fun. Print and deliver your Halloween greeting in person, or simply send an e-card version to anyone you choose.
