#Halloween Costumes for Adult Couples #BBNshops

Here is what Wikipedia offers regarding Costumes and Halloween:

“Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. Over time, in the United States the costume selection extended to include popular characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas and princesses.[71]

Dressing up in costumes and going “guising” was prevalent in Ireland and Scotland at Halloween by the late 19th century.[106] Costuming became popular for Halloween parties in the US in the early 20th century, as often for adults as for children. The first mass-produced Halloween costumes appeared in stores in the 1930s when trick-or-treating was becoming popular in the United States.

Rev. Dr. Eddie J. Smith, in his book Halloween, Hallowed Be Thy Name, offers a religious perspective to the wearing of costumes on All Hallows’ Eve, suggesting that by dressing up as creatures “who at one time caused us to fear and tremble”, people are able to poke fun at Satan “whose kingdom has been plundered by our Saviour.” Images of skeletons and the dead are traditional decorations used as memento mori.[139][140]”

All that being said: Are you ready for Halloween? Yes. You. Not the kids. You.

Your check list might include:

  • Treats for the kids
  • Treats for the adults (you)
  • Decorations for the house
  • Camera for all those greats photo ops
  • Costume for yourself

Costume for yourself? Have you thought about what you are going to wear when those trick or treaters come knocking at your door? When you hand out the treats will your costume help set the scene?

If you do not have a costume ready, then pay attention. I have some great costume ideas for you. Who says only kids should dress up and have fun on Halloween?

    I haven'had a trick or treater in years! In my neighborhood in Florida they banned it and folks had house parties for their kids instead. Now in SC, I am in a condo building for adults only πŸ™ I miss seeing the kids all dressed up. They were fun!

    • Cheryl says:

      Sounds like some good reasons for creating some of your own fun. πŸ™‚

  2. Susan Cooper says:

    Well since my husband and I both love to cook, I think the bacon and eggs costumes would be appropriate for us. Plus it’s super cute!

    • Cheryl says:

      Send photos please! πŸ™‚

  3. I'm a real party pooper when it comes to Halloween & while we always have candy for the kids who come by, I never get dressed up. Just wasn't a thing where I grew up, so never got in the habit.

    • Cheryl says:

      I guess that means you will be dressing up as yourself. πŸ™‚ Nothing wrong with that.

    I like the idea of the Day of the Dead tattoo just because… I don't mind going out for dinner on Halloween, but have never been much for noisy parties. That being said, the dirndl and lederhosen we picked up last month for Oktoberfest will now serve as our Halloween costumes for all of eternity πŸ˜‰

    • Cheryl says:

      And you just happen to look great in them as well! πŸ™‚ Tattoo? As long as it's temporary. LOL

    About 3 years ago my husband and I wore that couples bacon and egg costume!! Truly, I loath Halloween. I didn't particularly care for it as a kid, cared even less for the costume parties as an adult. I'm so excited this year because … we'll be out of town! Hooray.

    • Cheryl says:

      Truth be told I am not into Halloween parties. Too noisy… I don't mind wearing a scary t-shirt though. Makes people wonder you know. LOL

    Since my birthday is on Halloween and I had to stay at home to hand out candy, I have decided this year I am celebrating my birthday. I do love the time of year. I am passing your post to my son-in-law as he likes to get dressed up to hand out candy. He can be the bacon and maybe my grandson can go as the egg.

    • Cheryl says:

      I can't imagine having to give out candy to other kids on your birthday. What a bummer… I wish you a wonderful birthday this year! πŸ™‚
