Halloween – Dress up, don’t mess up.
Halloween is all about going all out with your costume. There’s no time for half measure, no cutting corners and no excuses not to look your absolute Halloweeniest. (Yes, that’s a word!)
Yes, there are those who get frightened at the sight of anything remotely scary. (Jess, it was a dragonfly in the garden not a mini spy copter) and some go full on scream out aloud seeing anybody in a cape.
Then there are those who go a bit too far with their costume and get a bit too much into character.
Yes, I’m talking about you Christo with your villainous vampire act. Kelly didn’t like the ‘little nip’ of your teeth – big Fangs for nothing and it took three weeks for that ‘love bite’ to fade away you zombie.
Having a laugh and dressing up is the idea – but messing up is all too easy. Make sure you get a funky and freaky Halloween look.
Don’t make it difficult and always (ALWAYS) get a second or third opinion on your outfit.
What seems like a good idea in your head may not make it out in the real or surreal world.
A FREAK-OUT FAIL
How’s this one?
A girl got all outfitted and made-up to look a million dollars as a Princess.
Tipped over into the OCD side of things about how important the costume was. She runs late for the party and can’t find parking in the street. Has to go blocks away and head there on her golden slipper feet.
She stumbles on the heels and falls into a rosebush. Struggles to get herself free. Rips and tears her costume, has a couple of scratches and a cut on her forehead.
Manages to find her way to the party but slips on the polished floorboards as she walks in.
She has a back that’s stiffer than an ironing board as she’s helped to her feet.
Her best friend comes rushing over and there she is – a bloodied face, tattered clothes and she can only take a stuttered step to the safety of a chair.
A nightmare on what should’ve been one of the nights of her life.
Funny thing is she ends up laughing her head off because she wins Best Dressed outfit because everyone thinks she’s come as a zombie!
It happened to my best friend’s cousin’s room-mate.
DEAD SET DISASTERS
Here’s a few other stories of costume chaos.
One guy was super lazy about his special Nerd outfit. In a last minute rush, he bought a pair of glasses without paying any attention to the strength of the lenses. The glasses were seriously thick.
Cut to a pretty drunk dude who has left the glasses on all night. See, the glasses were a proper prescription pair.
The party is over and he wakes up to four straight days of a splitting headache, and feeling dizzy. He’d spent all night straining his eyes wearing heavy prescription glasses meant for a person who is nearly blind.
Do not muck around with real glasses. Get coloured Halloween contact lenses instead. Safe, easy and just harmless fun.
Getting dressed up as a mummy by being wrapped from head to toe in – no, not bandages – but toilet paper. It completely shredded by the time the wearer got half way to the car. Returned home in nothing but underwear and complete devastation.
Special Note: Any toilet paper costume is a sh** idea.
Goodbye Halloween and Hello Humiliation.
Now, these are going to be great stories to tell AFTER the fact, but you don’t want to go through it in the first place.
AN OUTFIT THAT FITS
Yes, you can go hell for leather at Halloween, but unless you are an Olympic athlete or you train every day for hours, don’t wear leather, lycra or anything body hugging. Sorry, but everyone is going to see that cake you had three days earlier. Trust me!
THE EYES HAVE IT
For what it’s worth - they are pretty much perfect outlay - you can’t go past Halloween contact lenses. They don’t cost the earth and you can look like something from another world.
Even if it’s not the most unforgettable Halloween party ever, people are sure going to remember you and those devilish eyes.
