Be scarily good and not horrifically bad at Halloween
Here’s the best way to get a great look for Halloween. You can avoid making the classic mistakes that others have made (and still do) and dress up without stuffing it up.
There are way too many horror stories of people going down the wrong path and being haunted by their poor decisions for years to come. (Let it go Suzi, it was a wardrobe malfunction with the pumpkin suit).
Don’t join the queue of those who put the boo in major boo-boos. Here’s a few handy tips to help you miss the traps of losing your way.
The first thing you need to understand is not to over-think things. It’s Halloween, not a Royal Gala Ball. Halloween is supposed to be a fun time, so don’t be THAT person who you can tell is just a real stick in the mud because there is one up their… Arsenal football top.
You know the ones. They clearly have spent every waking minute working on their costume and though it looks dead gorgeous, you know they need to get a life! It’s not a school project Samantha! Who cares if the Wonderwoman cuffs and tiara have a red star on them or not?
It’s a Halloween party not a friggin’ audition.
You’d be sooooo better off putting in some amazeballs Halloween contact lenses like a She-devil, Vampire or Zombie and going from there.
MISTAKES TO AVOID (at all costs)
Whatever you do and however great you looked at the last Halloween or costume party – DO NOT go as the same character. It’s stale, it’s stupid and it’s super lazy.
Yes, you looked incredible – keep the golden memory.
Think of something else and stop trying to recapture the magic. It’s like going to a school reunion – every year. We get it Annie, you miss everyone from school. Time to move on.
NO CLUNKY CLICHÉS
Think about what is the most popular dress-up character and avoid it at all costs. Who wants a party chock-full of Handmaids or Whitewalkers or Donald Trumps (yesterday’s news or fake news)? Not me!
Think outside the box and try not to leave it too late.
Going as Daenerys from G.O.T is not the best choice either. I mean, hello? She went all crazy in the end and you’d be nuts to try to pull that outfit off only to cop a truckload of flak for the whole night.
SOME HORROR STORIES TO KEEP IN MIND
There are some true horror stories of Halloween costumes gone wrong.
Take the time to make sure you’re not making anything like the same mistakes.
A friend who loved Dr Who was dying to dress up as a character from the show and thought he’d go as – no, not Dr Who – but the Dr Who Tardis. Yeah, the thing that looks like an old phone booth.
Now, don’t get me wrong, the thing looked pretty spot on but walking around in it was almost impossible and dancing actually was. If you could actually travel in time, you’d go back and think of something else. Bup Bowrrrrrh! Try again.
FREE TO HAVE FUN
Now there’s a load of Halloween costumes that look good on paper and that’s where they should probably stay.
Avoid the idea of going as something that is too big, too bulky and just not flattering.
It’s fine to think that a Styrofoam coating will help you pull off the outfit of a world globe or a bowling ball.
Seems pretty funny until you think about how you’re going to get about in that huge thing.
Need a little push to get through the door? Can’t see your feet so you’re a tripping hazard just waiting to happen? Oh, and if you do fall, better call for rescue from friends because when you do fall flat on your back, you can’t get up again without assistance.
Drop the big ideas and go for something small but effective.
Something that looks like you visited a special effects department on a movie set. That’s where the top choice in Halloween contact lenses is one hell of a powerful ingredient.
EXAMPLES TO SAMPLE
Let’s say you want to go as a creepy vampire or a freaky witch.
You can do the cape and fangs or the black hat and hooked nose, but it’s the eyes that will add all the power to the costume.
Blood shot eyes or devil lenses are pretty awesome and green eyes or all black wonders for the witch look will haunt people for ages.
That’s the dead set beauty of using great Halloween contact lenses.
It’s something to build on and you’ll have a costume that will show you’re worth the attention.
