It gets cold at night:
Start with a plan that involves layers. Some examples would be
Antartic mummy, complete with snow suit.
Flannel salesmen, complete with wearable samples
People have cameras and Facebook accounts:
You don’t want embarrassing pictures of you popping up all over Facebook. Find a good balance between fun and appropriate. Or…you can wear a mask.
You can do a lot with household items:
Halloween stores are great, but you probably have a bunch of stuff lying around that you can use for this year’s night out.
It’s okay if someone else is wearing your costume: Don’t feel as though you have to go above and beyond and think of something wholly unique. Just wear what you want and roll with it.
You will lose a piece of your costume:
If you have hats, sunglasses, bracelets, capes, or fangs, you will not have them by the end of the night.
