Staying warm while looking hot this Halloween
It’s time for everybody’s favorite holiday for dressing scantily and scandalously, Halloween! It’s the chilliest time of the year to be trying to be outside in costumes that sometimes amount to not much more than a bathing suit. I don’t know how those NFL cheerleaders in cities like Green Bay, Denver and Foxborough do it! I guess all that jumping around and dancing keeps their core body temperature up.
But if you are planning to dress up this year in any costume that has the word “sexy” attached to it .. followed up by your favorite noun .. nurse/police officer/beer wench/ construction worker/ Girl Scout/schoolgirl/librarian/mermaid/CareBear/pirate/kitten/cowgirl/waitress/cheerleader/vampire/Mouseketeer/pumpkin. Let’s be real: If your evening involves any outdoor activities, no matter what part of the country
The primary problem here is that the minute you put on a coat to get cozy, you might as well not have dressed up at all. And inevitably the one cute single guy at the party is going to choose that moment to walk over to you and ask: “So… what are you supposed to be?” Hint: If someone asks you this question and you are indeed wearing a coat, just say “stripper” and walk off haughtily. They will follow you like a little panting puppy with their tongue hanging out. What you do with that is up to you.you live in, you are probably going to be cold.
How to stay warm without covering up? Here are a few creative ways:
-It’s not so much about your bare legs and arms as it is your extremities. So if your head, neck, hands and feet are warm, the rest of you can probably stand a little bare skin. Rock some cute boots with your costume, that shouldn’t be hard to do. An adorable hat or hairpiece is another must. If it’s possibly going to be really frigid out, gloves and a scarf in theme with your outfit should do the trick.
-Don’t get wet. Whether it’s a rain shower, a spilled drink or a wet t-shirt contest, getting wet is what’s going to make you really cold. So stay dry! If you’re wet, find a towel or a bathroom with an air dryer and remedy that situation ASAP.
-Find a heat lamp and stay there. You will surely meet many interesting (but also cold) people who seek solace there as well during the course of the evening.
-Start dancing. Like we said at the beginning, those cheerleaders know what they’re doing!
Have a safe, happy, fun, and scantily clad Halloween.
