Halloween is right around the corner, and along with it comes one of the biggest party nights of the year. On Halloween Night nothing is as it seems - tricks hide treats, ghosts lurk in every shadow and everyone can cast off their ordinary self and become whatever they want for the night!
One of the top attractions of any Halloween party is the costume competition, like the one that Khepri will hold at our Night of the Dead party in our Southport Nightclub on Saturday, October 28th. The winner will win a bottle of Cristal, so competition will be fierce. What will it take to win in this Spooktacular contest?
Making the right choice for your Halloween costume is the first step on your path to lifting the Cristal and being crowned winner of the Khepri costume competition. You have infinite possibilities, so be creative! You don’t have to choose something terrifying or something famous, and some of the most satisfying costumes can be ideas that no-one has had yet. Sure, vampires and sexy cats are classic costumes, but how about Buzz Lightyear or Sterling Archer?
Whatever you choose, make sure that you can execute it effectively – the best idea in the world can’t win a competition if it’s poorly pulled off! If you choose something that will delight the judges and nail the execution, you stand a strong chance of taking home the win. But what should you choose?
Halloween is about scares, more than anything else, and there’s plenty of really terrifying fancy-dress fodder to choose this year. How about Pennywise, the horrifying clown-demon from Stephen King’s IT? Or the Demogorgon, the monster at the centre of Stranger Things?
Iconic characters like Freddy Krueger, Hannibal Lecter and The Joker can all use their star power to make an impact, or something even more creative like a decayed zombie, an alien parasite or a twisted demon can show off your horror chops and help you scare your way to the win.
Alternatively, you can drop the horror and go for gold with something funny. There’s no shortage of joke costume ideas online, and since they adapt with the times, a great one will be new, fresh and hilarious. Maybe you’ll make people think, maybe you’ll go for slapstick humour, or maybe you’ll try to pun your way onto the podium – whatever you go for, just make sure to get laughs!
Of course, Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without the sexy costumes, and the Khepri Night of the Dead party is no exception. If you want to nail your fancy dress while still looking amazing, then something like Harley Quinn, Mystique or even one of the Khepri Firedancers might be perfect for you – and, more importantly, they might put that trophy in your hand!
Go All Out
Whatever you choose – scary, sexy or funny, the best way to win the costume competition at Khepri (or anywhere else, for that matter) is to go all out. Really pull out the stops, let your most creative self out of the bag for the night, and put together a costume unlike any other! If you can do that, you’re in with the best chance possible of taking home the glory (and the Cristal).
