The Three S’s of Halloween
The time is drawing near!
Only a week left until Halloween and chances are some of us still have not finalized a costume yet. Not to worry. I have a simple rule to help find the perfect costume. Just follow the three S’s:
Sexy: It really is this easy. Any costume can be sexy, and with the wide range of costumes now for women it is already done for us. New costumes based off the classic horror movie characters such as Freddy Kreuger and Jason have been made into sexy yet tasteful costumes. at The Halloween Costume store on Leetsdale in South Denver, I personally saw a women’s Edward Scissor Hands and Hugh Hefner. Even Marvel superheroes have made there way into the women’s costumes making Batman and Robin sexier than ever. The general rule with sexy is show enough but don’t show too much. For example show the legs, and nothing else.
Smart: Don’t be afraid to be creative. By using thrift stores or going through your own closet you can find a lot of options without going broke and being original. Have an old prom dress? Put on some fake blood and paint yourself pale. Instant zombie prom queen. Have torn-up jeans you have no idea why you kept and a ratty old band tshirt? Tease your hair, add some color and heels. BOOM! 80′s rocker girl. No one will have your same look, and you will be a hit without your wallet taking one.
Scary: Scary costumes are more of a tradition for Halloween mainly because they are fun and have the most variety. You can turn any character into a zombie, a vampire, or create your own take on a classic spook. The key to these is the makeup effects which are extremely cheap and easy to find. Target, Walgreens, or any local costume shop will have the things you need, from gruesome gore effects to pale dead and vampire teeth.
You can also combine all 3 of the S’s to create a look that will truly show off your talent and creativity. Most importantly have fun while you’re doing it.
Now, go out there and make a statement for Halloween!
