Dressing up for Halloween is supposed to be fun. It's a way to escape who you are, and be someone else for a night.

It's time to take a look at these 20 comfortable Halloween costume ideas that won't have you tugging at your clothes all evening long. Besides, the key ingredient to feeling and looking sexy is confidence, and if you're uncomfortable the whole night, you're probably not too confident.
