Halloween is the one time that adults are allowed to be as goofy and as playful as the kids and dress up in awesome costumes to go to parties. Some adults plan for this the whole year. Others simply cannot be bothered, and end up frantically knocking on costume shops at the last minute to find something to wear. For those who are at their wits’ end on what to do, here are some tips that will help you out.
Change Your LookOne of the best ways to get a costume for Halloween is to simply change your overall ‘look.’ If you usually stick to classic styles and sensible hairstyles, go crazy for this one. Wear a rocker T shirt, spike your hair, colour it, do a buzz cut, use beard balm Australia to slick it down to a goatee etc. Ladies, you can try wearing bold colours, crazy hairstyles, sparkly make up etc. Think of every makeover movie ever. The bigger the difference between the earlier and later you, the more it will seem like a costume. And who knows? You might even want to keep some of the elements in your wardrobe afterwards.Something BorrowedRaid your mother’s or father’s closet for a retro style look on Halloween. Chances are, they still dress in the style of 20-30 years ago, so finding retro clothing won’t be that difficult. If you want to go even further, look for stuff in your grandparents’ closets too. They are more likely to have kept things from their time so it won’t even be retro, it’ll be vintage. However, trends change so fast these days that even clothes borrowed from an older sibling or cousin would fit the bill. You can go dressed as the dorky older generation that doesn’t understand fashion.Radical ChangeAnother thing you can do is a radical change for Halloween. This is similar to changing your look but is more about doing a semi-permanent change to yourself rather than simply changing clothes. For instance, a temporary tattoo on a prominent place in your body; or a completely new style of hair and then using best beard oil to shape it to match the hair; long coloured nails; dark lipstick that you never usually wear; or some insanely high shoes. Any one of these radical changes to your wardrobe should count as the bare minimum of a costume, should you pull it off.So the next time Halloween is around the corner and you don’t have anything planned – don’t panic! Try any one of these tips and amaze your friends with your inventiveness.
