    The definition of the ultimate Halloween costume?

    A piece of clothing that brings out the terror in us all. Something that scares the living be-jesus out of anyone who gazes apon it.

  • Tayla

    The definition of the ultimate halloween costume for me would be something that combines sex and death something slutty with that little added extra to make it scary.

  • Chanelle

    The definition of the ultimate Halloween costume: It has to look the part(no skimping out on a sort of the correct thing), BE scary and if possible something that hasn’t been done to death, I’m looking at you fake-blood-just-smeared-onto-old-clothes-guy. All comes down to one thing be creative!

  • Laura

    The ultimate Halloween costume has to be tied to the identity of our inner demons in order for them to come out and play with one another on the one day society doesn’t condemn us for showing our darker side.

  • Jared

    The ultimate halloween costume is to be a dustbin. Look as much like a dustbin as possible, and then when people want to throw their trash away jump out and scare them. That way, not only are you saving money on a costume because dustbins are everywhere but technically you’re also recycling by turning trash into comedy and vice-versa so you’re doing the world a favour

  • Quinton Dos Santos

    The ultimate Halloween costume consists of three parts:
    1) Sexy or funny – these are your options, in-between is boring, make and effort.
    2) People have to get it! Its really sucky to have to explain who or what you are the whole time. So go as something simple or popular, one night in the mainstream wont kill you….
    3) Your costume has to suit you. Unless you have the body and personality for it – don’t go as Harley Quinn – need I say more?

  • Anriette

    The Adams Family. They define Halloween in every aspect – from their looks to their personalities!
    Halloween shouldn’t just be scary, there should be some dark/sarcastic humor as well, just like we know the Adams Family
    Morticia Adams and her dress, make-up and especially the “white” focus on her eyes are astonishing. I would totally wear her for this event (with a dash of millennial-style).

  • Johan

    Hallow was originally about impersonating spirits of the Otherworld, and it was believed that the dead would reunite with us on Hallow’s End. So i think the costume should be either otherworldly (whatever that might be for you) or death related.

    But more than that how well you can fit into the persona you created for yourself!

  • A real Halloween should capture the spirit and also be original with a DIY style of Costume n decorations. Making your own is so much meaningful than buying. The spirit is in believing in Halloween

  • Cailin

    My definition of the ultimate Halloween costume? Well, a costume that allows you to be something/someone that’s completely different to your usual self, because no matter how old we are – dressing up is always awesome!

  • Elmarie May

    Mens moet darm so bietjie effort insit en kreatiwiteit! Nie sommer net n hoed opsit nie 😀

    Die jaar is ek Hermione Granger

  • Mike Addison

    The ultimate Halloween costume for me is something that will turn heads, make people laugh and of course get you in a photo or 20. It has to put you out of your comfort zone and add to the silliness of Halloween but be sweat resistant for the electro stage. The ability to hide a drink or two in your costume is a bonus. If you don’t feel embarrassed showing your parents your costume then you simply aren’t trying hard enough! It’s just one night, no reason to not put in that extra effort. Be different, be stupid, but don’t just be yourself.

  • Rob Mitchley

    The ultimate Halloween costume is an outfit, of a slutty/scary nature…maybe even both, that would not be deemed appropriate on any other day than Halloween. Think of going about your daily routine in a Slutty Pumpkin outfit or as a bloodied zombie. Normally that would be frowned upon, but on Halloween it’s awesome! If it will turn heads and give Tannie Sandra a heart attack you’ve got a winner!

  • Rowan

    One that is dark but funny. People should be able to catch on if they know what’s going on in the world.

    For example, I’ll hypothetically be going as a hunter and my girlfriend as a lion…

  • Re

    The ultimate halloween costume, or rather each halloween costume, should be an outfit which will scare people. Halloween is not a fancy dress up party, or a chance for girls to slut-out, contrary to what they were all taught in Mean Girls back in 2004. It should be all about the FRIGHT!

    Now if you had to ask me what was the most frightening thing in this world, it have to be a serious commitment. So a girl in a wedding dress ready to pop the big question would haunt me for days! That’ll be the ultimate halloween costume.
