Halloween allows us to take ourselves out of the struggles of midterms and parking tickets, and puts us in a place we wouldn’t experience otherwise. But sometimes couples take this “new place” too far. Here are the costumes we hope to save our eyes from at Midtown on Friday:
I’m not sure who thought of costumes like “the screw and the bolt” or “they key and the lock,” but they take all of the fun out of Halloween night.
Sure it’s funny if you’re at a party and the contest is funniest costume or most awkward thing you could show up to a party in. But wearing these to Grog House Bar & Grill is awkward, and most people will stare at you with judgmental eyes.
Hugh Hefner & his Playboy bunnies
Before anyone questions this, let me say the only thing that creeps me out about this costume is Hugh Hefner is actually older than my grandfather. If my boyfriend tried to resemble that on Halloween and expected me to wear a sexy bunny costume, I would be going to 101 Cantina alone.
Don’t get me wrong, though, I’m all about being free in wearing whatever and however little you want.
Warriors with Their Prize Princesses
I never had an issue with this one until I went to the Halloween store the other day and saw the Greek warrior costume next to the “Grecian Love Slave” dress. I'm sorry, what? Grecian love slave? Who voluntarily wears a costume about being held against your will to please a man?
I’m usually not one to shout from the rooftops about stuff like this, but as a woman, a Greek one at that, I’m actually appalled that someone would think that’s a “cute idea."
At the end of the day, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I will forever 100 percent respect that. You do you Gainesville because truth be told, how different we all are is one of my favorite things about this school.
