Every year I suppose care about most people I suppose gets entirely riled up about their potential Halloween costume ideas. They slave over brainstorming creative and funny new ideas for weeks on end, well before the Fall season even begins. Many of them go out and purchase intricate outfits and accessories to make the single night a big success… and then never wear the get up ever again. They rarely even recycle their costumes for the next year; instead, the whole pile of fancy clothing gets thrown into a closet and forgotten forever. Another space that frustrates me is how little time these outfits are even exposed to the public! Let’s get real here – Halloween is a cold, gloomy holiday… Half the time it rains or snows on the day of the sizable event, and the entire costume is hidden under all those layers of moderate clothing, anyways! All of this has me thinking about the hottest Halloween costume idea ever… a furnace. And when I say a “hot furnace,” I mean this in a fairly literal sense. The smartest Halloween costume on earth would be a self-heating costume. The occupant of the outfit could absolutely be moderate and comfortable all day and night long without ruining their entire costume! Instead of covering up with a heavy Winter time jacket and gloves, you could certainly pack yourself into a large cardboard box with a large collection of heating pads, hand warmers, and downy feathers… Just care about using a central heating idea safe at home, the occupant of the furnace costume would be warmer and more comfortable than ever, however even better, staying moderate while keeping their costume front and center for the whole holiday, come cold rain or snow.
