Top 3 Overplayed Costumes

We’ve all been there… it’s the day before Halloween and you’re completely desperate for a costume, so you resort to a “basic” or “classic” costume. Sometimes, the oldie-but-goodies are not so good! Steer away from these bad boys if you’re over 18!

1. The Witch

We all love the witch costume, but save it for the little kids! I feel as though the witch costume loses its luster because women try to make it “sexy.” Witches aren’t sexy…they are green and mean!

2.  The Pirate

I know there’s a little Jack Sparrow in all of us, but we don’t have to express it via eye-patch and peg leg year after year.  If you go to a Halloween party and there’s more than one pirate there, then you know the costume is overplayed! Again, the pirate is adorable on little kids but it’s just seen TOO much on adults. I still have faith in the sailor outfit though–keep em’ coming!

3.  The Cat

The cat is DONE. Many girls tend to find this as a last resort almost every year and it’s a big no-no! The eye-liner whiskers, the clip-on tail and the furry-ear headband need to go.  Cats may have 9 lives but that doesn’t mean you can be a cat 9 times! Save this costume for the kitties (hehe!). On the other hand, if you still have a passion for your furry friend, try being Cat Woman.  Cat Woman throws an eccentric spin on the original cat costume.
