Believe it or not, Halloween can actually be a total advantage to you if you are on the prowl for a date. It is the only time of the year that you can get away with some truly outrageous or interesting looks. So, why not make it work for you and snag yourself a date while you are it?
Of course, most people can stumble a bit when it comes to putting together the perfect Halloween costume. This is because you have to make sure that all of the elements are working together perfectly. If you want to learn the secret of getting this right, here is what you need to know:
Make It Interesting
Gals and guys alike need to focus on making their costumes as interesting as possible. Why? Well, with an eye-catching costume, half the work will be done for you. All eyes will be on you the moment that you enter a room. This means that you may not even need to walk up to the hottie that you just saw – they may just come right over to you!
Another bonus is that a fascinating costume can be an excellent icebreaker. The cooler your duds are, the more positive comments that you will get when people first talk to you. This will get the conversation rolling in the right direction and give you plenty to talk about.
Keep It Relevant
When you are looking for a date, first impressions matter. This is why it is so important to make sure that your costume is relevant. It will prove to potential partners that you are living in this century and are up-to-date on all the latest news. Wearing something that was hot last year can make it seem that you are out of touch or just plain uncool.
So, how can you tell your costume is relevant? Hot tip: a current costume is going to explain itself. If most people can identify your costume without any trouble and compliment you on it, this is certainly a good sign. Therefore, it is a good idea to get some feedback from your friends before you go all in on your costume.
Walk the Line Between Sexy and Classy
Halloween is the only time of year that you can add sex appeal to any uniform or outfit. Now, while it can be tempting to take full advantage of this, it is best to not go overboard. Remember, you are looking for a date and a costume that is too sexy can send the wrong message.
A sexy but classy costume will highlight your best features and really make the outfit work for you. So, a little bit of skin – for women and men – will go a long way. At the same time, you don’t want to seem like you are trying too hard. So, it is best to leave sexy nurse and nun costumes at home. And guys, if your costume ideas involve a cowboy’s outfit with chaps or Tarzan, then you need to work on your options a little more.
Dress for the Date that You Want
Finally, when picking out your costume, think about the person that you want to attract. Are you looking for someone with a sense of humor? Then, find a costume that is sure to draw some giggles while still keeping you looking hot. You can then spot your perfect date when he or she mentions how hilarious they find your costume.
Want somebody who’s more intellectual? Then go ahead and dress up as your favorite literary character or a historical (but sexy) figure. When they immediately guess who you are going as you will definitely know that they are the ones for you.
If you want a partner that is more passionate, then make sure that your costume is sizzling. Someone who shares your lust for life will definitely find this alluring and make a beeline for you. Not to mention, they will probably be dressed in a similar fashion, making it easy for you to spot them in a crowd too.
If you are looking for the perfect date, then your Halloween costume may just be the key to getting you one. So, put a little bit of effort into deciding which one is just right for you. It may just end up making all the difference.
