Is Halloween Getting Scarier Due To Such High Fashion Expectations?

I myself am not someone with massive fashion sense. I tend to be late to the trends because I am never confident enough to fully commit to them as if I everyone would turn and point and start laughing at me like “I can’t believe she actually fell for it”. Don’t ask why, but that’s how I feel. Having said that though, I feel more and more pressure every year to have the best halloween costume.

The thing is though, the criteria has changed since I was younger. I would always try to find something super creepy because I just thought it would look so cool and I would be “the talk of the town” as if I wasn’t just wearing a flimsy zombie costume with a mask twice the size of my head.

I think the difference in costumes from now and then are so much more noticeable for me because I was kind of a tomboy. Unlike my other friends who would be like a witch or a fairy, or something just more “typical” for a girls costume, I would aim for the more in your face type of costumes.

But now I have grown up, my style has changed and I actually put some thought behind my costumes. Having said that, when I tell you what I am planning to be you will most likely ex off this post and have an existential crisis while wondering how you ever got to this side of google. I’m gonna be… Perry the Platypus.

And just for reference, I’m going to put a photo of who this is because to my shock and horror, my mum literally didn’t know who he was even after I showed her! Somehow I feel like I failed her as a child. Did I not torture you enough with quality cartoons? Did I not make enough -inators?

Quite the catch, no? And by the way, I’m not planning to wear a tail or whatever the fuck you call it because I do want to keep the little dignity I have left. What I’m planning to do is where a blue dress and a fedora and possibly yellow shoes if I can muster up the cash! Which reminds me that you guys can help a girl out by donating whatever the fuck you want so I can fund such brilliant costume ideas and keep this somewhat brilliant blog alive!

Anyways, back to the point I suppose. When coming up with a costume I felt as though I had to find a balance between sexy and slutty and let me tell you something, there is a very thin line when it comes to costumes. I’ll be looking at pinterest and the range they have is either a fully body morph suit that your grandma would love to see you in, or a single thread of fabric. So I mean how the fuck am I supposed to choose? And they usually cost the exact same thing as well.

That’s usually why I don’t go for the proper costumes and I just create my own adaptation because you know me, I love a bargain, so you know Imma be on vinted and depop for this shit. It is quite fun I’m not even going to lie but it takes work to find something good. You also gotta make it creative though because if I were to turn up in a red dress and bang an M on it and say I’m an M&M it would look like I really didn’t give a shit.

I want it to look like I put effort in and actually tried but then again I don’t want to walk into a room full of girls with cat ears on while I just spent 4 hours making it look like a zombie chomped into my arm.

I love to see how other people can be so creative though and when they do cool special effects I find it so cool, or even when they just have a great costume idea and I’m like “why didn’t I think of that” I think it’s so fun. I think everyone’s costumes are amazing, apart from couples… I don’t have anything against your outfit but please just save me the heartache. It’s like ok Mickey and Minnie we know you a couple but don’t rub it in our face.

Overall, I prupose that this year (as in tomorrow) we all just have fun with it and don’t stress out about whether or not we gonna look sexy in an outfit because literally that’s not the aim of halloween. It’s to be scary and have some fun! Honestly though just do you. This year I’m literally being a sexy perry the platypus so you can really just be whatever the fuck you wanna be! I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yousrelf PERIODT.
