Tip 1: Dress as a Firefighter, that way if you see someone dressed as a Cat, you can “save” them. Has yet to fail me.
Tip 2: Go as an Antarctic Researcher, Inuit, anything that will allow you to be warm outdoors. You can have a second costume under the winter wear for when you are inside. I suggest a Cat costume.
Would have shared sooner, but didn’t want my tips going viral. It’s the subtlety and logic that makes these things successful.
