When I was a kid, Halloween was all about trying to get the best candy and dressing up as your favorite superhero. As an adult, Halloween has evolved into a night out with your friends that may or may not include an occasional dance floor excursion. Among all of the things you will see on Halloween, nothing will be more obvious than the sheer number of costumes! Costume contests, costume sales, costumes everywhere.
If costumes are going to continue to be a thing (as they have been for forever) then it is critical that you put the proper thought into your choice.
Halloweens are ruined every single year for individuals because of poor costume choice; do you want to be that person? Of course not, but that is where I come in to point out some of the more common blunders when it comes to dressing up.
There are several factors that you need to consider. Is your outfit going to be warm? Is it going to be way too common? Can you coat check Thor's hammer? All valid questions, but whether you are thinking of going with a classic, or trying to create a unique spin, Halloween can be a great night for creativity.
For a costume to be a success, it needs to be both comfortable to wear and able to withstand whatever the night will throw your way. But have no fear dear reader, because here I have outlined some common mistakes that you can now avoid! Rock out on Halloween and do so in a stress-free environment, knowing that you already have the basics locked down when it comes to your costume. Still looking for a costume? Great, here are also some examples of things you may think are practical and easy, but there is more to a great Halloween costume than meets the eye!

When you are coming up with your final costume suggestion, make sure you can, y’know, get around in it. Some costumes can be really stiff or unpractical to move around in and that can really put a cramp in your night. You want to go as Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump? Awesome…except now you can’t stand all night. Want to go out to a bar or anywhere in public? Have fun finding somewhere to store your wheelchair. Want to get your dance on with your girlfriends? Here's hoping your shoes promote both your costume, and proper blood circulation!
