What You Halloween Costume Reveals About You
Halloween costumes are a great way to peer into your friend or loved one’s mind, personality or mood for the day! They are also good reflections of one’s inner, hidden desires that they may be afraid to express. And it allows teens to explore alter egos or their identity and for adults to be kids again.
For example, individuals who choose political figures may reflect party affiliations, who they consider to be polarizing news figures or preferred candidates.
Guys who opt for a pirate costume may reflect their inner rebellious spirit, fearlessness, or secret desire for criminality and decadent behavior.
A sex kitten may reflect a woman who wants to exhibit sex appeal but is not allowed to express that side for fear of judgment while a nurse may want to exhibit warmth and care during the day and sexuality at night.
And finally men who fantasize about being a super hero such as Batman, Spiderman or Superman, may be tapping into their inner savior who wished they could rescue the world while being adored and remaining private.
