Every person you’ll see at Halloween Hive tonight
That’s a lot of Harley Quinns
Halloween Hive is upon us tonight (already?) and we’ve compiled a definitive list of people (including yourself) you will see. You’re all so original.
The people who go all-out
Just like Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls. These people didn’t get the memo stating that Halloween equals shameless slut dressing. I mean, have they not memorised the classic quote, “Halloween is the one night of the year that a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girl can say anything about it”? Instead, they’ve opted for straight-up scary and now they stand out like a sore thumb, or should I say an incredible hulk in the middle of a crowd of sexy cats or Harley Quinns. Fuck it, they should work that horrifyingly realistic zombie bride – they don’t need no sexy devil costume to get them through the night. Who cares if everyone in Beer Bar quite literally jumps back in fear every time they walk past them.
The people who get too drunk to tell what they’ve come as
You’ve just left pres and they’re heading to Halloween Hive with their tipsy costume -clad squad. You’ve nailed it – there’s a nice buzz going, ready to hit the bar and down a pint of fun or two. And then you spot her. The person who got a bit over-zealous at pres and is now drooling from the mouth, crawling up Ashton Lane. Are they a zombie? Are they an animal? Who knows. This person is so steaming that their carefully applied special FX make up is dripping down their chin and their costume’s got some particularly realistic looking vomit stains down the front. Whatever they were meant to be dressed as, they’ve ended up as a state. It’s a scary resemblance to Donald Trump.
The make up junkies
We all know the types. Those that cover up their dismal, less thought-out costume with the gruesome latex SPX wounds or fancy face-paint. When you first glance you’re impressed but when you look closer the leggings paired with a striped top is less than impressive. They’ve thought about their face but their costume has clearly been pulled from the dark corner of the wardrobe that no-one ever uses. The clothes that are reserved only for Halloween and never see the daylight or even the washing machine.
The people who thought they shot-gunned Harley Quinn
Lol. They’re in for a shock. But who cares? Thanks to Suicide Squad, one of the most hyped movies of 2016, women across the country have the perfect costume for Halloween – Harley Quinn. She is the definition of sexy, dangerous and sneaky, and her outfit was totally adorable. Even though there will be loads of mock Harley Quinns everywhere, in a way it is teaching girls to own their body and be confident. A pair of pigtails, fishnet tights and a baseball bat can do no harm to anyone, surely. However, when you do see a Harley Quinn on Halloween I bet she didn’t remember to bring a jacket as Scotland’s weather is debateable at the best of times.
The people who have no imagination
Shock. Rugby boys, we’re looking at you. A ripped, skin-tight white tee with blood spattered all over it. Perhaps a badly-applied scar on the face. True, rugby boys look scary enough as they forcibly battle their way to the front of the Beer Bar queue, but they could at least put some effort in instead of re-using last year’s white, blood-spattered tee. High five for originality.
