Exactly when did the so-called Halloween start being much pressure? Let’s flashback. Back in the day, designing a scary monster / cute fairy princess costume meant a lot of fun to us. However, as time went by, Halloween costumes started getting more and more stressful. Talk of the hair, the apparel, the makeup—it was all anticipated to blend like a super pro.
A stressful ordeal
At times, Halloween can blow you up. Yup, I said it. Don’t get me wrong, like most of you the Halloween lovers, I love the thing from the bottom of my heart, but landing on a perfect costume can be a daunting task. Everyone is seems to look fantastic, and there is the fear of being a total Halloween amateur. Banks are broken, and hours burned just searching for that ultimate Halloween costume.
