1

Pick a simple concept and then be the best at it.

Example: the devil. Be the best devil! You don't want people wondering who you are supposed to be.

 

2

Make sure you don't have anything blocking your mouth.

That way nothing gets between you and your cocktail!

 

3

If you can't glue it, don't do it!

Glue is the fastest way to make costumes. Yes that's right girl, you don't need a sewing machine to look good in Halloween drag!

 

4

If you make your shoulders bigger, your waist will look smaller.

Say yaass! to shoulder pads and shoulder decorations.

 

5

Add lights. Tuck battery packs away into wigs hats or pockets.

This extra element will make you the center of attention at the party.

 

6

Show off your best asset. Pick one: legs, ass, waist, chest.

It's okay to be sexy or shocking. It's Halloween!

 

7

Do contour.

Do you know you can contour chest, six-packs, cheek bones?

 

8

Yes Girl: Your shoes must match your costume!

This can easily be done with glue, fabric pieces or spray paint.

 

9

Your costume must sparkle!

Everybody's eyes are drawn to sparkle. So bring down the glitter and runestones.

 

10

Go big or go home.

Halloween only happens once a year!
