Halloween: A Great Time to Tap into Your Creative Side


Halloween is such a great time to tap into your creative side. On BIGG Success, we often spend time looking at our personal lives and ways those activities can benefit us professionally as well. We’ve talked before about why it’s important to tap into your child-like nature and use your imagination.

Halloween offers the perfect opportunity to be a BIGG kid again. When you get invited to a costume party, don’t be a stick-in-the-mud. (Although, come to think of it, that would be a great costume!) Play along. Have some fun.

One of our favorite local lounges is tapping into their creative side by turning themselves into a speakeasy this year. Yep, that’s right … we’re going back to the roaring 20s!


marylynnI went as the waitress from hell one year. I wore an old dress with one of my old aprons, and I had a tray for serving up eyeballs and all kinds of nasty things. This year, I think I’ll be the freaky flapper girl. Instead of a feather boa, I’ll wear a spider web!



georgeI had thought about being a gangster, but that may be a bit too obvious. We had dinner with some friends the other night. They have a friend who just got married so she’s hyphenating her name now. It’s Butts McGee. I love that name. I immediately pictured a beat reporter from the 20’s. So I’m going as Butts McGee!


3 fun costume ideas

We found a list of great costume ideas over at the Hollywood Flakes sight. Here are our three favorites, but check out her full list for more great ideas:

Nudist on strike
This is a really simple costume that can be created at the last minute. Dress in your normal clothes. Make up a picket sign that says “Nudist on strike.” Just make sure you’re home before the strike ends!

Chick magnet

This is another very simple idea, although perhaps not the cheap. Get a bunch of Barbie dolls and attach them all over your body. It’s every guys dream, right?

Miss Conception

This is the perfect costume if you’re pregnant, but it can work for anybody – just use a pillow. Get a glamorous gown. Do your hair and your make-up like you would for a beauty contest. Make a sash that says “Miss Conception”. Then just smile and wave all evening!

Play time is important. A Halloween party is a great way to spend time with friends. Sometimes, it’s good to be a BIGG kid again!
