‘Tis the season for lingerie and long wigs and oh what a season it is.
Halloween is the one night in the year when racoon eyes are the goal and wearing, what my dad would call, “half an outfit” is socially acceptable.
Halloween is all about pretending to be someone you’re not. When you were little, Halloween gave you the opportunity to be the Disney princess you always dreamed you’d be or maybe you wanted to see what life felt like on the dark side and fill the shoes of a blood sucking vampire for the night – the beauty about halloween is it lets you be whatever you want to be. So if you struggle with body confidence or self love than why not be your sexy alter ego for the night? Put on a wig, slip into some sexy lingerie and adopt the attitude of a sexier version of yourself. It gives you the chance to test the waters, to explore a version of yourself you may want to be without having to commit to it – if you want black hair but aren’t confident enough to take the plunge then why not wear a black wig for halloween, if you don’t get the reactions you were hoping for you can put it aside after the night and close that door. If you’ve been feeling down in yourself, you got sucked in by all the beautiful airbrushed Instagram beauties and now you’re saving your pennies for liposuction so you can get Kim K’s waist, then Halloween could be the pick-me-up you needed. It’s an opportunity for self love, staring yourself in the mirror you’ll see a Victoria Secret Angel version of yourself – you will be the sex symbol you’re usually in awe of. You’ll feel how you look: sexy. And when you look sexy, confidence will come naturally.
And yes, of course, there’s the haters who will label you a slut and such, but the reality is no matter what you do in life there will always be people against you. We all must accept the fact that no matter how much we may want to, controlling other people’s thoughts and actions is ultimately out of our control. All we can do is control our own. So you must make the choice; Do you live your life a certain way to get the approval of certain people? Do you live your life the way that makes you happy and gains YOUR OWN approval? Regardless of what decision you make, hate is inevitable.
