Adult Halloween Ideas When You Don’t Have Kids
You may be too old for trick-or-treating, but you can still enjoy the Halloween action. If you live in a neighborhood where you know lots of kids come around every year, decorate the front entrance of your home and make it welcoming in a spooky kind of way. And don’t stop there. The best Halloween adult costumes are limited only by imagination. Create your own, or buy one of a well-known action figure that kids can relate to. When you open the door and the kids shout “trick or treat,” the trick will be on them!
Best Halloween adult costumes
Whether you’re at home surprising the neighborhood kids on Halloween night or attending a Halloween party, you’ll want to be hip to the best adult Halloween costumes this year. Traditional scary costumes are always in vogue, especially if you invoke your inner sexy witch or freaky zombie. Historical characters can also be fun, such as a saucy pirate or a Greek goddess for women, or the Lone Ranger and Al Capone for men. Couples often pick a similar theme and dress up as their favorite famous pair, such as Superman and Lois Lane.
Adult Halloween decorations
Host a party at your house, or get together with friends and borrow or rent space elsewhere. Pick a Halloween theme – famous couples, a decade such as the psychedelic ‘60s, favorite literary characters, or television and movies. Your decorations can be as simple as orange and black streamers, a table centerpiece, plain or carved pumpkins, and pots of fall flowers. Or you can kick up the scary quotient and cover windows with cobwebs and spiders, hang skeletons and scatter fake bottles of poison around.
Host a scary adult movie night
Take a silent poll among your adult family and friends and pick the horror movie that creeps out everyone the most. Give each of your guests their own Halloween snack bag filled with movie theater popcorn, nuts and Halloween candy. Wash it down with soft drinks or some adult beverages.
Adult Halloween ideas for drinks
Immediately set the Halloween mood when you greet your guests with a colorful, spooky drink using a small amount of dry ice. The fog lifting from the surface is an instant conversation starter. You can also find recipes online for a candy corn martini (vodka infused with candy corn) or a blood-red martini. An olive dropped in the bottom of any drink becomes an eyeball.
