Five Outfits To Wear for Halloweekend

It’s officially the season for all things dark and macabre. Whether you’re watching 31 horror movies in 31 days or taking the kids trick-or-treating, Halloween is a fun time for many. Many adults like to get together and throw themed parties with spooky drinks and foods, some of us like to hang out at home, and others may want to go out on the town to enjoy drink specials at their favorite bars.

If you’re looking to go out during Halloweekend but are not interested in putting together a costume, there are some looks you can put together that will stop the show while also being comfortable enough to dance in. Who knows maybe you’ll snag a cutie while you’re out!

  1. Love these for femmes. May we get one of these for tomboys or butches who prioritize comfort and utility? (I.e. personally, I will never squeeze my toes into pointy shoes, or put all my weight on the balls of my feet in heels, ever again!) What screams, “I’m comfortable, could fight like Buffy at any second, AND I’m sexy” to the gays?

  2. I know this piece is about non-costume outfits for Halloween, but I’m dying to know if there will be costume-related content between now and November. All the costume content I found was from the past and I was hoping for a current photo gallery of queers in their costumes…
    Especially since there are so many revelatory new queer characters to dress up as this year, I want to see us dressed up like our faves!

  3. I realize this piece is about non-ensemble outfits for Halloween, however I’m passing on to be aware on the off chance that there will be outfit related content among now and November.
