Should You Join In?
It all depends on the party and where the location is at. If you trust and know where it is that’s great, if you’re going with a friend that you trust, that’s alright too. Just as long as you feel as safe as possible. Just as long as you are doing whatever you’re doing safely. I’ve already been invited to multiple parties. Some are costume parties and some are not. I know at least one person that’s going to a party on the weekend of Halloween. Mostly because Halloween is on a Monday this year which is a hard time to have parties but I wouldn’t be surprised if someone had a party or two. I haven’t said if I’m going or if I’m not going to either of the parties but if you want to join in on the party go ahead.
Are you too old for costumes?
I personally don’t think that you get too old for costumes. One of the parties I was invited to is a costume party. I have my costume locked and loaded which is Max Mayfield from Stranger Things, specifically season 4. Plus my friends and I are thinking about doing something on that Sunday with our Halloween costumes and just having a dinner of some sort. Even though you might not go door to door for candy you can still have fun with your friends and dress up like your favorite character. That is why I love Halloween costume parties even when you get older.
How To Choose Costumes
It’s hard to choose something you want to wear any day of the week and the stress of Halloween just adds to the pressure of the matter itself. Creating a costume is hard and everyone expects you to choose a costume from one or even two days out of the year. I decided between multiple costumes before deciding what I wanted to be. I thought about Freddy Krueger from a Nightmare on Elm Street, Dr. Facilier from The Princess and The Frog, Kate Sharma from Bridgerton, or Max Mayfield from Stranger Things. You guys know I chose Max because her jacket is awesome this newest season plus we get see her in a really dark place trying to get back to how she felt before Billy’s death.
Homecoming this year falls on Halloween weekend which is interesting. I mean it will definitely have joint party events going on. Even though this year the Hawkeyes haven’t been playing their best this year people are still going to celebrate homecoming. I’m planning on going to some events on campus to celebrate but also with not getting tickets makes it harder to motivate me to celebrate. I’m a football fan and I was disappointed I wasn’t able to get tickets for any of the games. So this year is going to feel different without a football game but it’s okay. Even if you can’t get tickets you can still celebrate with your friends.
On Friday my friends and I who love horror films are going to be doing a Saw marathon starting that afternoon. I have class so I’m going to book it over to my friend’s room to start the marathon. I think I’m also going to watch some more horror films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and others. I’ve also watched some good old Halloween Disney movies along with Halloween episodes from certain shows of my favorite back in the day. But if you can’t go on a binge of movies just try and make time for that one Halloween movie you always love to watch. Mine this year was Hocus Pocus and Hocus Pocus 2.
Halloween grows as you grow up, whether that’s costume parties, movie marathons, or just plain walking around in a safe place. Whether or not you go to a costume party or a regular one just know that if you’re with people you like you will always have a fun time. Plus being able to just try new things when Halloween time comes around. Thank you guys for taking the time to read this post and I hope this can help you figure out what to do for the Halloween season. Have a great day, week, month, and year!
