Halloween Costume Notes

Some random thoughts on Halloween costumes, and costumes in general, based on observations made over the weekend.
  • If you are going to an event where food or drink will be served, consider how you're going to eat while in costume. Full-face masks and vampire teeth aren't much good in this respect.
  • Make sure that you can go to the bathroom in your costume.
  • If your costume involves lots of makeup or colored hairspray, keep in mind you really need to wash it off before you go to bed. Plan accordingly.
  • The better it looks, the more of a pain in the ass it's going to be.
  • Keep in mind you have to fit the costume and you in a vehicle to get where you're going.
  • Check your range of motion before you go out. This may avoid trouble later.

I'll close out with a pet peeve: don't half ass it. If you're going to go in costume, go in costume. Don't slap a dollar mask from the drug store on with your jeans and t-shirt and call it a costume. You just look like a schmuck.
