Not only will this advice help you look great on Halloween, but it’ll make you more popular too! Looking your best on Halloween can be a way to show others how awesome and cool you really are.
Tip One: Fit Your Personality
I’ve always been known as a fun, popular guy. So, I try to pick costumes that are fun in some way. Even if I decide to go scarier or darker, I still try to keep it lighthearted and fun too. If I tried to go truly dark, it wouldn’t really work because that’s not who I am.
So, pick a costume that fits with your personality. Let your best traits shine through in your choice. If you’re quirky, be quirky. If you’re a little outrageous, then be a little outrageous. Don’t just follow the crowd, but let your personality shine through. But, if your personality is bland, then go straight to tip two.
Tip Two: Be A Little (Or A Lot) Bold
I know a young man when I taught high school who was pretty straight laced and conservative. The guy rarely said much of anything. For Halloween dress up day his senior year, he came to school in a creative, funny costume. For him, it was a very bold move and everyone loved it! He became much more popular after that. The ladies especially love it.
If you are known for being a follower who goes with the flow, then maybe your costume can be a way to break out of the mold and be a little more exciting. On Halloween people expect you to be creative, funny, and a little crazy. Use this as a chance to show them how awesome and fun you can be! It could actually make you more popular, like it did with my former student.
