Dressing up in Halloween costumes is great, but it can also be hard, weather-wise. The end of October is a time of year, in most parts of the country, where it’s just cold enough to make going outside without a jacket pretty miserable – and everyone knows that throwing a jacket over your carefully constructed costume is pretty lame. Is an awesome Halloween costume really worth being cold and uncomfortable for? On the one hand, you want to have a cool and clever costume. On the other hand, you want to make sure you’re comfortable enough for a night out on the town. As a pretty lazy person, I would much rather go for the comfy, warm route this Halloween. Who is with me?!
Okay, even if you don’t consider yourself lazy, wearing sweatpants on Halloween sounds awesome, right? Well, you’ll be excited to learn that there are a ton of costumes you can wear that involve sweatpants that will keep you looking both cute and warm. You can even be spooky while wearing sweatpants, if you’re into that sort of thing. So why don’t you try one of these sweatpant costumes this year? You’re going to want to be all snug while you stuff your face with all that candy.
