Girls nights out, they're stressful/fun/dramatic/messy without Halloween thrown in the mix. Halloween girls nights out are a ball park of their own- they're a hyper-girls night. Here are the inevitable stages...
1) "What The F*ck Are You Wearing" Call.
This happens at around 4pm, when there's just enough time to sort out a costume. Your friendship group is a mixture of girls who have been planning their halloween outfits for six weeks, and those who always end up just going as cats.
2. Costume Envy
Said Cat then turns up and gets upset because you all look great- a mixture of mermaids, unicorns and Harley Quinns. Whereas she has some ears, a black dress and shoddily drawn whiskers on.
3. Costume Switch
Cat girl ends up going as something even shitter due to last minuet panic- there's a lot of toilet roll involved to create a very makeshift mummy costume. Group effort.
4. Face Painting
Not the usually makeup station setup, Halloween nights out include a lot of fake blood and face paint. Someone will spill fake blood on the carpet.
5. Contact Lenses
Creepy contact lenses are a halloween necessity nowadays, the process of putting them in is v stressful. The mixture of vodka, shaky hands and screaming doesn't help. One girl plops them in, no trouble (she wears contacts). The rest of the girl gang end up with streaming eyes, one contact in and raised blood pressure.
6. Social Media Photoshoot
Any excuse for group pics, ammiright? You need these pictures, because once predrinks happen there will be absolutely no useable images. You delegate who posts what
You try and play drinking games, but all get too drunk and gossip- because it's way more fun. Someone throws up before the taxi arrives. Someone cries. Someone passes out.
8. Taxi Ride
Poor, poor, poor taxi man. You make him turn up whatever Beyonce song is playing, and you all sing along- I say sing, it sounds more like hyenas being trampled.
"No, babes, I love you more. Honestly, you are the shining sun in my life. My soulmate." *sob, sob, sob* *cuddles* *kisses* *laughing*.
10. Club Queue
You try and skip the queue, but your mate dressed in toilet roll isn't really helping. You stand and wait for half an hour- because it's f*cking halloween and the world and their dog is out. Everyone begins to slightly sober up, apart from your one friend who is bursting for the loo and ends up running down a street to go. Classy is a word not needed nor wanted on a GNO.
11. Dancing & Shots
You finally get in, the red sea has parted and you all fight your way to the bar. Someone screams "TEQUILA" and before you know it you've all downed 5 shots and are grinding on each other on the dance floor.
12. Smoking Area
You all go to the smoking area to recap the night thus far. Will she go back with her ex tonight? Why's she crying? Who let the little one out their sight?
Pizza and cheesy chips time. You sit on the takeaway floor and between mouthfuls shout about how much fun you had.
14. Taxi Hunt
There are no taxis. The food hasn't helped sober anyone up. 3 shoes, two lipsticks and 5 dignities have been lost on the search for a taxi.
15. Fall Out
Someone is upset because they dressed up as a burrito and didn't pull. Someone else calls their ex and gets a group scolding. Everyone is sleepy and cold. Plus the fake blood has gone crusty and we no longer look like cute zombies, we now look like actual zombies.
16. Home Time
Everyone naps in the taxi, then all crash in the same bed. Everyone forgets to take their halloween contacts out, and someone brings a pizza into the bed. FFS.
