Fantasy costumes help us step out of character, especially during the Halloween season. This is a good time for those who can’t say no to become decisive. For those angered by love lost, to forgive and embrace a loving or even sexy new look. And for those trapped in toxic relationships —because they cannot set limits or escape — to take on the personality of a goddess with the power to break free.
For couples this is a good time to practice Martha Graham spontaneity. Dancer and choreographer, she was once asked, “How can you be so spontaneous?” She is said to have replied, “Spontaneity took years of practice.”
This is your chance to plan a spontaneously passionate “Trick or Treat” weekend for Halloween or anytime of year. And be sure you take a few strip tease lessons for the fun of it. Then set the date for a getaway to heat up romance and spice up intimacy.
§ Find a romantic inn or a fantasy land hotel.
§ Set a time when you and your husband or lover can escape for at least two days.
§ Pack some champagne.
§ Buy yourself a wild negligee or choose a sexy red dress, a feather boa and long gloves.
§ Buy something silky for your guy.
§ Practice a fun strip tease or become a purring kitten.
The goal here is to create a memory and set the stage for passion and loving away from home that you can carry back to your own bedroom.
Sometimes couples have fun just being out of character. Why not dress up like your favorite fashion icon?
