In the last few years, the COVID-19 pandemic has definitely changed the way we’ve been experiencing Halloween. While for many people, things are largely back to normal, the spread of COVID-19 is still a concern for many individuals, especially those at higher risk or those who regularly interact with high-risk individuals.
Whether you’re just thinking about the traditional Halloween safety or you’re trying to keep COVID-19 precautions in mind, here’s how you can celebrate more safely no matter what spooky experiences you’re interested in.
Tips for Decorating
Decorations are one of the best ways to celebrate Halloween in a way that’s incredibly safe. A haunted mansion on the outside of your home can make guests feel the spooky spirit instantly, whether you’re doing a Halloween party, trick-or-treating, or just leaving candy on the porch for people to grab.
Drills, jigsaws, and electric knives can also take your pumpkin carving game to an amazing next level. Plus, if you have friends over, you can all try out your hand at pumpkin carving that’s even more enjoyable than the traditional kind.
On the outside, there are a number of ways to pump up your décor:
- Make your own fake spiderwebs by taking cotton balls and unraveling them, stretching them out over chairs and walls.
- Purchase Styrofoam slabs from your local arts and crafts store, then cut them into headstone shapes and paint them to look like a headstone.
- Put a Styrofoam ball on a post, then stick it firmly into the ground and add a sheet from a thrift store to make ghosts.
- Replace some of your normal light bulbs with black ones for some drama and mystique.
A stop at the local arts and crafts store, plus another stop at the local hardware store, can give you everything you need to create a spooky spectacle.
What if you’re having an adult-themed Halloween party and want to really amp up the sexy aura? There are plenty of ways to make your Halloween party a little sexier:
- Get a chocolate fountain and set up a “body painting” station.
- Provide some adult-themed take-home goodie bags, filled with products like condoms, flavored lubricant, and massage products.
- Put on a burlesque show. It'll encourage people to dress up and get a little wild.
- Provide drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), as well as finger foods. Ideal snacks include oysters, which serve as aphrodisiacs to get people in the mood for the rest of the night.
Dressing Up With Friends
Dressing up is one of the most exciting parts of Halloween, and the best part is that you’re able to choose the direction you want to go. Are you trying to create the spookiest look? The sluttiest? It all depends on your personal parameters.
It’s common for workplaces to hold Halloween costume events, and whether you’re working remotely or you’re in the workplace on Halloween, you can get your coworkers in the Halloween spirit and get excited to enjoy yourself. You can even dress up a little bit every day in October, leading up to the big day.
Additionally, if you’re lucky enough to be seeing your lover on Halloween, you can really pull out the stops with a super-sexy Halloween costume. Whether you want to be a naughty nurse or create the sexy teacher fantasy of your dreams, HUSTLER® Hollywood has fetish lingerie and fun costumes to help you turn up the spice.
No matter what Halloween dress-up and accessory needs you have this year, HUSTLER® Hollywood wants to help you find the perfect costume. You can do whatever you need to be safe, from in-store shopping to local pickup and shopping in the HUSTLER® Hollywood online store.
The Best Food and Drinks
Whether you’re just collecting candy or you’re making snacks for all your friends, food and drink is one of the best parts of Halloween.
Squash dishes are a solid choice for the autumn months, like Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese or Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup. Additionally, remember that you can roast and salt squash seeds just like pumpkin seeds.
Pumpkin spice is also a solid choice for the fall; plus, it feels like everyone’s agreed that pumpkin spice is actually super tasty. Take your milk frother and add a scoop of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice for a morning treat that tastes even more decadent than the classic PSL. You can also bake pumpkin cookies with fun shapes and unique decorations.
Witch’s Brew is another great option for parties, as it’s a party mix that tastes amazing and is exciting to serve. Plus, you can add a few cups of vodka if you’re hosting an adults-only party.
For adults, consider grabbing something that you can take your shots through, like the Huge Penis Ice Luge. Not only is it super fun to take shots out of, but it’ll keep your drinks cold and add an incredibly sexy appearance to an already-sexy party.
Enjoying a Drive-In
During the COVID-19 pandemic, drive-ins definitely had a revival, and you can check to see whether there’s a drive-in near you playing fun shows. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a classic to show on Halloween night across the country, and other classics like Frankenstein and Dracula often pop up.
If there isn’t any drive-in in your town, then you can craft your own spooky horror movie night. If you can get your hands on a projector and screen, then you can even make it possible for your whole neighborhood to come over and watch with you.
Dancing and Enjoying Yourself
Finally, nothing is more fun than the Halloween favorites that stalk playlists during October. From “The Monster Mash” and “The Addams Family” to Siouxsie and the Banshees, there are plenty of exciting Halloween tracks that you can enjoy come October. Seek out some playlists on your favorite streaming service, so you’re ready to go before the dance party happens.
Whether a Halloween party is on your wishlist this year or you plan to stay in with your family, you can enjoy yourself all October long. Remember to stay safe with these tips and tricks and shop for the sexy parts of your upcoming Halloween costume at HUSTLER® Hollywood.
