Confession: I don't really do costumes. I think I dressed up one time during high school (as Snow White) for a yearbook event... and one time as Blair Waldorf during college. And now that I think of it, I think I dressed up like a ballerina freshman year. I get really uncomfortable (read: embarrassed) to wear costumes. Mostly because people tend to use dressing up as an excuse to dress up. Do I want to wrap myself in duct tape or wear a costume out of a bag that would barely fit my newborn self? No.
But... that doesn't mean you have to miss out on Halloween! You can definitely dress up with clothes you already own and dress in a presentable way.
What are you planning to go as? Do you do costumes?
