Halloween. Definitely one of the top 3 party holidays of the year (Although I personally prefer Thanksgiving Eve as far as fall drinking holidays are concerned).  A great excuse to dress up as anything.  Nothing is off limits; celebrities, historical figures, inanimate objects, you can literally be anything you can gather up a costume for.  The art of choosing a Halloween costume is not easy, and if you want to succeed in achieving Halloween perfection, a lot of factors have to be considered. Group costume? Couples costume? Solo costume?  Classy or trashy? Fiction or non-fiction?  Picking a costume is hard, and almost inevitably, this is how the choosing of your costume will play out.  It happens every time.

Step 1 is to actually be invited to a party.  No invites, no costume necessary.

Now that you have a place to go, you need something to wear.

Nobody wants to be that doofus that shows up without a costume.

Or be that guy dressed up as something nobody else has ever heard of.

Both of those just lead to too many questions, which can seriously interfere with your celebrations.

The perfect costume needs to find just the right balance between cute…

…and scary…

…with just a touch of sassy.

The cooler and more unique your costume is, the better.

But you know what, even when you come up with an awesome idea, making the costume is a lot of work.

Other things are more important.

And before you know it- It is the day of the Halloween party, and you have no costume.  The panic sets in.

But it’s whatever.  You just start pregaming.

Because in reality, you knew you would never make an actual costume.

This whole time you knew the inevitable would happen:

No matter how hard you try, slutty anything is the go-to costume.  It’s just the way things are, and the way Halloween will always be.  All any college student really needs for Halloween is a very small article of clothing, and some cute little animal ears. It’s really just that easy.  And gentlemen, this could work for you too, man slut costumes are usually pretty funny.

What are you going to be for Halloween?
