Halloween is just around the corner. I love Halloween because I get to be creative and wear an outfit that I couldn’t get away with on any other day of the year. I will take any opportunity to be over-the-top with my hair, makeup, and fashions. It’s always fun to talk to my clients and hear their great costume ideas and fun Halloween plans. It got me to thinking about all the costumes that can look even better and more complete with a smokin’ hot tan. Here a few of the ideas I came up with:
- Lady Gaga—I am dying over all the awesome Lady Gaga costumes that are at the pop-up Halloween stores and even at Wal-Mart. You can buy Gaga wigs, hair bows made of hair, kooky sunglasses, and some of her most memorable outfits. I had my eye on the blue one from her Poker Face video, but I have deemed it too skimpy for me. No matter how strange and wacky her outfits are, she always has at least a light healthy glow on her. Did you see her glowy spray tan at the VMA’s? Ah-mazing!
- Jersey Shore cast—You can’t even bring up Jersey Shore without mentioning tanning. I’ve heard that several girls are going as Snooki this year. It would be so fun to pouf up my hair, wear a leopard cocktail dress, and put on some big sneaker-shaped slippers. Although we can’t give you a crispy-fried tan like Snooki’s, we can definitely have you looking like you spent two weeks in Jamaica.
- Greek goddess—This is always an easy go-to costume. There are always several variations that can be bought at the store or even done right out of your own closet. No goddess costume is complete without a golden tan. I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a cream tunic in the middle of fall without a little color on my skin!
- Any costume that shows the legs, midriff, and chest—I think many of us gals are guilty of rocking the token “scandalous” Halloween costume: naughty nurse, sexy schoolgirl, flirty pirate, etc. Like I said, Halloween is the one day of the year that you can get away with nearly anything, so why not do it? And when you are showing that much skin, a tan is a must!
