Never once in my life have I worn a costume on Halloween.
Not even when I was a kid, the religion I grew up in forbade celebrating the holiday. And even when I left the religion, most Halloweens were spent at rock shows or private parties.
Costumes just aren’t my style, but over the past few years I have found a ‘trick’ that has led me to some dirty little female treats on this day of decadence.
The first thing you have to do is dress well. Look as good as you can. I wear slim black jeans, Dalton Boots, a slim black button down shirt, lots of jewelry, and a hat. If its cold out a fitted pea-coat and scarf go over everything.
I usually throw a bunch of silver glitter on my face and in my beard for some extra panache.
When you go out looking good, you usually stand out more from the parade of clowns that will be stumbling everywhere.
Walk around until you find some girls who are sexy and having fun. Approach them and tell them they look interesting. If they are wearing a lot of make-up ask them if they have any eye-liner. Then ask them if they can put some on you. Try not to cringe in pain as the liner goes on. I don’t like it overdone, but just the right amount actually looks really cool (for Halloween).
Say thanks and hang out with them if you want, but it’ll be more fun to roam around for a while and fuck around.
I usually go to a party or a crowded bar and just stand around looking at people until I catch eyes with a girl I like. With the eyeliner on, you will get a lot more eye contact.
Approach the girl and say hi. When she asks what you are supposed to be, you can say ‘a stranger’. This will usually get her laughing. From there, feel free to get weird and escalate very fast.
This year, I’ll be working on the Fantasy Project and will spend most of my time trying to make weird shit happen, and I predict that going out without a costume will lead to better results.
