CHICAGO, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you thought about dressing up as a Hollywood idol from the 1930s, '40s or '50s? Maybe James Dean or Bette Davis? Or even Cruella de Vil from The Hundred and One Dalmatians?
It's a lot of fun to dress up as a star of yesteryear. Many of them were so stylish and distinct they are easy to identify whether or not you look like the star, as long as you have the right outfit and props. And that is where it gets tricky rather than treaty.
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
Maybe you've ruled out dressing up as certain vintage Hollywood stars because they were such well-known smokers it seems impossible to capture their look without a cigarette. And an old school tobacco cigarette is not such a hot idea for many reasons. A Halloween party full of creative costumes is the absolute last place anyone wants to see a lit tobacco cigarette. It is a hazard not only because of the long-term health risks but also because of the very immediate risk of causing a fire when a flammable fairy or goblin dances by you. Those old cigarettes aren't considered a treat by too many people anymore.
Sure, you could just not light it, but then you can't blow smoke rings or exhale glamorously. And if you are a former smoker, a party is not the place to set yourself up for temptation. You could try to make some kind of fake cigarette, but you'd probably spend most of the night explaining what it was. You do have one more option: the e-cig, an electronic device that runs on a battery and emits vapor instead of smoke.
Seeing Stars and More
"We've definitely seen more interest in using e-cigs with a Halloween costume," said Chad Maynard, spokesperson for ElectronicCigarette.net. "They offer a safe way to capture that old Hollywood look without accidentally starting a fire or getting kicked out for smoking."
While many users purchase starter kits when they take up vaping, you can also find single devices at a growing number of convenience and liquor stores so you can have one for Halloween without investing in a whole kit.
"Some of the options out there really look like traditional tobacco cigarettes," said Maynard, "but there also some really striking and unique choices as well."
A traditionally styled one might be just the touch for a Humphrey Bogart or Joan Crawford costume, while a more snazzy style could resemble an old fashioned cigarette holder. Some of the more unusual ones could even inspire whole new costume ideas – maybe a steam train or a wacky robot!
