Now the Halloween that we know of usually falls on the sexier costume side of things.
The "i'm a bunny" costume or "i'm a cat" costume is probably one of the most over used costumes but will never go out of style. It's so simple, get a cute dress, animal ears, draw some whiskers on your nose and BOOM you're good to go!
Not into sexy animal costumes? Have no fear there's some pretty easy costumes you could create just by using the clothes in your closet. Just grab a needle and thread or glue stick and scissors and follow one of these super easy DIY costumes from Pins and Procrastination: http://pinsandprocrastination.com/13-easy-last-minute-diy-halloween-costumes/
Ok so you're not into costumes. How about face paint or makeup? Sometimes a spooky face is all you need to take your look over the top or make an everyday outfit a costume. Need some inspiration?

However, a lot of people often run with the joke that Halloween is when the "hoes" show their true colors or "come out at night". Which unfortunately could lead to some very awkward and unwanted advances. We all know that the clothing you choose to wear does not imply that you "wanted it" #metoo. So if you're deciding on going out this Halloween dressed in a spooky costume or the classic "I'm a mouse", here are some tips to stay safe:
Buddy system- I think this rule should apply whenever you go out at night, whether its a bar, house party, or club.
Drink what you can see- If you're at a club get your drinks directly from the bar. People get weird during Halloween and may try to spike your drink. So don't just accept a drink someone hands out to you. This also applies to party punches, if you don't trust it don't drink it.
Keep cash on you- During this time Uber/Lyft can be expensive do to high demand so make sure to keep some cash on you in case you have to grab a city cab.
Until next time, stay safe and have a spooky Halloween!
