Do you like dressing up with someone else? Or do you prefer to go solo?
Although I might be more enthusiastic about it than my boyfriend, we like to play up on current events for our costumes each year. Last year we dressed up as the Ashley Madison scandal. This year we’ll keep it a bit more PG and dress up like characters from one of our favorite shows (Jeopardy).
