Romantic social network Zoosk.com reminds couples of important considerations for their coordinated costumes. Costume suggestions available at: http://www.paradigmpr.ca/ZooskCouplesHalloween
TORONTO, Oct. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Halloween doesn't typically top the list of the most romantic holidays but it's a great occasion to celebrate as a couple. Coordinated costumes are a clever way to ensure you spend ample time with your sweetie on Halloween night. You'll be the life of the party as you flaunt your costumes and make fun memories together.
"While not a traditional approach to chivalry, suggesting a couple's costume can be a romantic gesture," says Lida Elias, a creative date planner and CEO at Toronto-based Save My Date. "It shows a level of commitment. When you display your coupledom to the world with a couple's costume, it's a pretty big sign to let others know you're taken."
Whether it's your first Halloween together or your fifteenth, here are some tips to keep in mind when planning a couple's costume:
Are you both Halloween buffs?
"Let's face it; sometimes opposites attract and only one of you will be really enthused about the idea of dressing up," says Elias. "If this is the case, opt for a couple's costume that can be pulled off with one partner doing most of the heavy-lifting."
You're committed but do you really want to be attached?
People may say the two of you are "attached at the hip," but it will be a new experience to literally be in the same costume. Think practically before getting carried away with a costume idea.
"Do you really want to spend the whole night together?" poses Elias. "How will you navigate bathroom breaks? If you don't feel comfortable discussing those logistics and possibly getting caught in some awkward moments, don't confine yourselves to just one costume for the evening!"
Do you want to make a statement?
If you're in a budding romance, or trying to get there, beware of suggesting something too goofy because it can backfire and land you in the "friend-zone."
"While your goofy get-up may be a hit at the party, it's not the best way to demonstrate that you want to be a romantic couple. Instead suggest costumes that would work as individual costumes, but you want to do together to let the world know you're a pair, for instance a pair of 50s mobsters or a cowgirl and cowboy."
