Spooky season is upon us, and with it comes the return of some of our favorite looks as well as looks that are … well, quite memorable, to say the least. Below are four looks you’ll be sure to see this Halloween season, as well as a few thoughts regarding these types of costumes.
#1 Angel and devil
If you’re out and about Halloweekend, you’ll be sure to encounter our first type of costume: the angel/devil duo. Just throw on a white skirt or red bustier and you’re ready to go. Whether you go to the Friends of Rigby Halloween bash or a sweaty Henle, you’ll be sure to see way more than your share of angels and devils.
#2 You’re not quite sure what they’re supposed to be
They’re wearing a black outfit and a yellow wig — are they supposed to be a yellow M&M? Is this costume supposed to be a rendition of Violet from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”? Asking them can only end in two ways: either you offend them, or you risk looking uncultured once they point out the character they’re supposed to be.
#3 The one using Halloween to live out their cosplay fantasy
Don’t get me wrong — everyone loves to dress up like their favorite character on Halloween. There are those, however, who treat Halloween more like a cosplay event than a light-hearted holiday. Did they take four hours to complete their Harley Quinn makeup to absolute perfection, or have they been doing it for awhile?
#4 The Sexy *Anything*
There’s no doubt that we all enjoy taking advantage of the ~ creative ~ liberties Halloween provides us with. It’s a time you’re free to do your hair and makeup however you wish, and it’s also the time to show as much or little skin as you desire. Pretty much anything has a “sexy” version of it marketed for Halloween.
