About Raven Costumes
"Quoth the raven, 'nevermore.'" A raven costume is a great match for the dark and scary atmosphere around Halloween. In Edgar Allen Poe's poem, "The Raven," the black bird is a figure of darkness and foreboding, adding a very creepy touch to the verse. In many cultures, the raven is a symbol of death, lost souls, and bad omens, giving Poe and other poets lots of inspiration for their darker verses. In the Native American cultures of the Pacific Northwest, the Raven is a trickster figure, but he is also a creator and a friend to humankind. Whether you want to dress up in a gothic style costume that symbolizes death or have fun playing a trickster for a night, a raven costume is a great choice. Pair some black wings with a black dress or medieval armor or wear a mask with a long beak. Sellers on eBay offer lots of different styles of raven costumes for men, women, and kids.
