Jen, a blogger, recounts her experience creating an easy Halloween costume alongside her partner, Adam. She says, “I wore high-waisted black leggings, an off-the-shoulder black crop top, and a leather jacket. I completed the outfit with gold hoops, a black belt around my waist, and black leather boots. Adam wore blue jeans, a white V-neck t-shirt, a leather jacket, and sunglasses. Adam slicked back his hair with moose and lots of hairspray (he decided to do this on his own, and I was really proud). I curled my hair and gave myself a smokey eye and red lips… (i).”
