With tomorrow being Halloween, I thought it would be fitting to give everyone a little reminder of the Halloween do’s and don’ts, especially in the costume department.
Granted, these tips are for anyone under the age of 30, but please read along, I promise it’s entertaining.
Tip number one: This goes to all you high schoolers out there. If you go to the door to trick-or-treat and the person doesn’t immediately say “Aww” or “Aren’t you so cute,” you’re too old to go trick-or-treating. I get it, we all want candy, who doesn’t? But there comes a point in each of our lives when we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and admit we are too old to participate in the ever so fun event of trick-or-treating. Besides, you have money, go buy your own. Also, technically, you would be taking away candy from kids. Do you want to be that person who takes candy away from children? Didn’t think so.
Tip number two: This one’s for the ladies. Alright, so you want to look cute on Halloween. Again, I get it, I too share the feeling, and honestly I’m all for a little risque costume here and there. It’s Halloween, so why not live it up? However, some Halloween costumes should not be “sexy.” For example basically any type of animal. The fact that there are costumes that say “sexy bumble bee” or “sexy lady bug” disturbs me. I don’t know about you, but never in my life have I seen a sexy bee or bug. Seriously, girls, think of something else, because an animal really isn’t all that cute, it’s just weird.
Tip number three: Speaking of animals, and this one is just for my personal enjoyment, but anyone who has any type of pet — dress them up. It’s adorable, and while your pet may hate you for a few hours, the pictures are completely worth it. Just make sure to give them a treat afterward.
Tip number four: Have fun! Whether you’re at home passing out candy or going out to a Halloween party, the point is to just enjoy yourself and go all out. If you have a crazy creative costume idea, run with it! Do-it-yourself costume ideas are always the best and get the most attention, so even if you’re passing out candy at home, why not dress up? Just because you’re too old to trick-or-treat doesn’t mean you’re too old to have fun on Halloween.
As for me, per-usual I will be in Mankato where I will be dressed up as a Girl Scout — yes, I will have actual Girl Scout cookies to pass out — and my boyfriend will be a Boy Scout. Oh yeah — if you’re married, dating, engaged, whatever it may be, do a matching couple costume. Once again, it’s adorable.
Everyone, have a safe and fun Halloween, and don’t eat too much candy!
