Have fun, but be respectful
Halloween is a fun occasion, but some costumes are frowned upon due to their offensive nature. Pro tip: Go as something that scares people, but doesn’t make them mad! And if you’re not sure on which costumes could offend people, always check with someone who knows. Oh, and don’t play pranks on unsuspecting people if they’re not taking part in this year’s Halloween.
We hope you have a fun Halloween experience this year with these costume ideas!
