Halloween is, after New Year’s Eve, the biggest party night of the year. While going out and getting hammered for its own sake is always in fashion, there’s a good chance you’re also trying to pick up. Halloween not only allows you to be a little more forward with women than you normally would be, it also lets you dress in a way that attracts a lot of attention. On All Hallow’s Eve, you don’t need a pickup line. All you need is a conversation-starting Halloween costume.
Max from Where the Wild Things Are
How To Do It: Wear footie pajamas. You can totally get them for adults. Fashion yourself some kind of crown and scepter and you’re ready to go.
What It Says: I’m not afraid of my inner child… he’s actually kind of a badass.
What She’ll Say: “Ohmigawd! That was my favorite book when I was a little girl!”
Monster With Human Prisoner
How To Do It: Get a monster costume with a top that stands up on its own. Make a phony cage. This is where the upper part of your body goes. Get some fake legs and you’re good to go.
What It Says: I’m kind of weird, but good weird.
What She’ll Say: “How’d you like to make me your prisoner?”
How To Do It: Dress like Michael Jackson. Extra points for being a zombie version. Monkey and medical mask optional.
What It Says: I’m funny in a cruel sort of way.
What She’ll Say: “That’s the scariest costume I’ve seen all night.”
Han Solo, the Carbonite Years
How To Do It: Get a very large box and wrap it and yourself in tinfoil while making the pose. Withdraw your arms. Cut out the entire face because tin foil on the face is no fun.
What It Says: I love Star Wars. I’m kind of a closet nerd.
What She’ll Say: “I love Star Wars. I’m kind of a closet nerd.”
