There are so many options when it comes to choosing a Halloween costume. Options such as different themes, fit (lose or tight), warmth, etc. Seeing as there are so many options, we can all choose a costume in which we will feel comfortable in, be warm in, and look amazing. So here are some of our do’s and don’ts when it comes to Halloween costumes.
Dress According To Your Plans For The Night
First tip is to dress appropriately for the event you are going to or activity. If you are going trick or treating or going to a family event, make sure your costume is more conservative when it comes to showing skin. However, if you are going to a house party or a night club, showing a bit of skin is acceptable. Remember to dress according to the people you will be spending time with on Halloween.
Wear A Costume Which Makes You Look Good
Not all costumes suit all people, and some look way better on some than others. When choosing a costume, it may be a good idea to choose one which compliments your weight, height, and other features. So if you had a few extra pounds to play with, choose a costume that plays a larger character. Or if you’re tall, try out a costume like the Hulk or Andre The Giant. If you’re short, perhaps try the Penguin from Batman or Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Dress For The Weather
Another really important one. Before you choose a costume, try and work out exactly what you will be doing on Halloween. Halloween is during a pretty cold time of the year and sometimes temperatures can reach below freezing. For this reason, it is important that you will be warm enough for your activity. If you freeze your boots off, you will not have a good night! So if you’re heading downtown and plan on being outside for some time, perhaps try wearing a full costume which is warm and perhaps even a mask. This should keep you nice and warm. However, if you’re headed to a house party and will be taking a taxi, it is much easier to show a bit of skin and wear something with far less clothes. Also, perhaps house parties are not as good to wear those thick bear suits because you may be too warm.
