Not sure what to be for Halloween this year? Thankfully, there are plenty to choose from this year. Whether you’re going alone, with your significant other, or with your friends and family, there’s a Halloween costume that will fit everyone’s personality and budget. And if you’re a woman, you don’t have to fall back on the regular sexy (insert blank here) costume that’s offered in every costume shop.
Some couples may find that dressing for Halloween can be particularly difficult, especially if you have different ideas in mind. Some popular ideas for Halloween 2015 include the sweater weather and pumpkin spice latte costume, wine and cheese, squirrel and acorn, Curious George and the man in the yellow hat, rival fast food brands, or any couple from Hot Wet American Summer. Check out the rest of the Halloween costume ideas for couples at the Bustle article.
If none of these ideas tickle your fancy, then you may want to go as “Netflix and chill.” Seriously, the date night that’s synonymous with sex now its own Halloween costume. If you ask someone to “Netflix and chill,” you’re probably to do more than watch a movie. What you need to create this costume is a shirt printer so you can find a Netflix logo and print it on a red T-Shirt. You should also print out the word “chill” and print it out in a white T-Shirt. Some props you may want is a bag of popcorn, a Hollywood movie clapper, a lamp or nightstand, or a bag of ice. You may want to use fake ice or plastic ice that won’t melt through the bag.
