I do so love Hallowe'en. Enough to honour the word with its traditional apostrophe, it seems. But what about when good Hallowe'en ideas go bad? It can happen. Trust. So perhaps we'd best go over a few things together to make sure we're all making the best decisions we can make for our annual costuming. And that brings us to DOs and DON'Ts: Hallowe'en edition!
DO get crafty! Pinterest is a great resourse for Hallowe'en DIYs.
DON'T false advertise. Fool me once, Dr., shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you!
DO plan ahead. You don't want to end up wearing the only Hallowe'eny thing you could find around the house.
DON'T sell yourself short. With those prices, you're not gonna make enough to buy the cold sore medication you'll require.
DO go traditional! Witches, mummies, and ghosts are classics for a reason, though I think if my skeleton actually looked like this, childbearing would be out of the question.
DON'T conspire to keep your lady away from your hot bod. Dude, you're your own worst enemy! Don't wine to me when you're actionless. Get it? Wine?
DO go sexy if you want. Whatever, I've been a Playboy bunny a time or two. It's kind of fun. But can we please keep it in the realm of identification? This chick is supposed to be Nemo. Oh, and it's another yandy.com gem! No shocker.
DO work with what you have around the house! I might be a clown using only my little brother's regular clothes! (Why am I always picking on S.J.? Poor kid.) But anyway, you see how you can create Rosie the Riveter and other characters from your own closet.
DON'T think a boxed costume is going to win you first prize in a costume contest. Actually, upon closer inspection, these may be pyjamas from the little boy's department. Even less great.
DO go creepy! Although, maybe not this creepy (yandy.com, you're making my life so easy!)...
DON'T make it impossible to hold a drink. I've seen robots dying for a sip of beer and it's a sad scene. And for real, how you gonna take a shot wearing these things? YOU AIN'T. It's a double whammy for this guy. Buddy is having the worst night ever.
DO dress up at any age! Wait, is this a do?
And one more DO: Theme it with your bestie!
Trick-or-treat, y'all! Have a fun and safe fright-night :)
