Choosing A Couples Costume Partneradmin February 21, 2012
If you really want to thrill at this year’s Halloween bash, why not take part in a hallowed Halloween tradition? Dress up in a couples’ costume! It’s the perfect way to spice up a committed relationship or take a new one to the next level. But whether you choose an old flame, new flame, or just a friend, be sure your potential Halloween partner has the following characteristics.
A Sense of Adventure
Two people may mean checking out two parties (or even more), so be sure your Halloween buddy is prepared to meet new people and try new things together.
A funny bone
Even if your couples’ costume is deadly serious, super scary, or even sexy, Halloween is as much about pranks and games as it is about glamour. Don’t choose someone high maintenance who can’t abide a hair out of place. Halloween fun means getting your hands, claws, or flippers a little bit dirty.
A Shared Vision
Just because you LOVE Battlestar Galactica doesn’t mean your office crush will be game to go Cylon too. And if you’re gaga for Lady Gaga, don’t expect your boyfriend to fill out some fishnets at your command. If your couples’ costume idea simply can’t be compromised, find a partner who shares the passion and give your significant other the night off.
An Open Schedule
Before committing to a look, commit to a mutually convenient schedule. Between office parties, family obligations, and the best cocktail specials, you’ll want to plan when and where you’ll be making your fabulous joint appearances.
Think you’ll be stag but still want in on the fun? Try asking a friend, co-worker, or even the crush you’re dying to get closer to! A couples’ Halloween costume brings people together and will get people talking about how great you look as a pair. Bonus: shopping and brainstorming couples’ costume ideas can turn into memorable first dates.
