If you are going to a Halloween party this year, dress up! Take on the task and have some fun with it.
There is nothing more lame than showing up at a big Halloween bash dressed the same way you dress the other 364 nights a year.
It makes you look too cool for the room.
Don't bother coming if that's the case.
How can you come up with a costume? Brainstorm with some friends.
Who or what would be fun to be? What's hot this year?
Celebrities, politicians, athletes. Who got in trouble this year?
Who died this year?
I know that might sound a bit morbid but they show up every year.
Traditional monsters, sexy anything for women, maid, nurse, naughty cop etc. Classic movie characters.
Last year I saw a group go as the entire cast from the Wizard of Oz .
One group showed up as one of the teams from the movie Dodgeball.
This year I'm sure we will see a bruised Tiger Woods, an orange jump suited Lindsay Lohan, screaming Mel Gibson, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Snookie.
Personally I am holding out hope for a few Carl Paladinos.
The point is have some fun with it; escape reality for a night.
Complete strangers will greet you in character.
Hey it can be a great ice breaker.
You'll find you will have a much better time.
So this year don't be that guy.
I'm Ted Shredd and that's My 2 Cents.
