Over the years, I’ve learned to appreciate Halloween. The spooky holiday has given me the opportunity to dress a little slutty without harsh judgments or shameful stares. Now that I am 34 years old and attached, however, I must be more discreet. This year I will give away my dominatrix costume to Goodwill and find a Halloween costume that hides my bosoms.
What can you wear when you are a older, respectable, taken woman? A couple’s costume, of course. Here are some great and inexpensive 2012 Halloween costume ideas for couples!
Sexy Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Granny Wolf
This Little Red Riding Hood and Big Granny Wolf costume is perfect for a Once Upon a Time Halloween theme party. Grab a basket and bring an ax to complete the look. And be sure to give lots of love to your big bad wolf.
Thor and The Black Widow from The Avengers
Ever want to be as bad as Scarlett Johansson? Then this costume is for you. It’s the perfect blend of sex appeal and strength. Thor isn’t too bad to look at either. Now, prepare to battle evil. There are homes to defend from egg yolk and toilet paper!
Edward and Bella from Twilight
Robert Pattison forgave Kristen Stewart so it’s time to expose them! Celebrate their vamp/human love by dressing up like Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. All your honey needs is a wig, bushy eyebrows, and light foundation. For Bella, Glamour Magazine recommends you “really go pale with a foundation lighter than your skin tone.” Apply lip balm and use brown mascara. For the hair, they suggest to “go for a wig if your hair isn’t already long and brown. Otherwise, just brush your hair straight back as you blowdry.” Just be sure to stay away from the sun. And movie directors.
Beyonce, B.I.C, and Jay-Z
Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed Blue Ivy Carter last year just so you can dress your family like hip-hop royalty. How does one exude the majesty of B.I.C and her momma and poppa? NY Magazine has great and simple suggestions. First, there’s Jay Z, who is often seen around NYC in a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a blue Yankees cap. As for B, well, you need to sparkle and dazzle. Wear a fake fur and 4-inch gold heels with a full on bronze wig. If you want to bring the sexy, wear a black leotard ala “Single Ladies.” B.I.C can be introduced like the messiah that she is – dressed in all blue with a crown on her head.
So, get your trick or treat on this weekend and enjoy Halloween like responsible adults. Remember to have fun and hide your lady parts.
Tell me, what costume will you wear on Halloween this year?
