Swap screams of terror for screams of laughter this October 31.
Sure, you can go for costumes that focus on gore and guts on Halloween. But there’s a more whimsical side to this holiday, too. Why not make people (including yourself!) LOL instead? After all, Halloween is the chance to act silly, step outside yourself, and be someone—or something—you’re not. And we can all use a little escape from reality sometimes!
