There can be a lot of pressure when it comes to getting a good Halloween costume together. From thinking of the perfect idea to executing it, Halloween can take a lot of time and effort if you really want to get it right. If anyone gets this is, it's the Real Housewives, because these ladies love a good themed event. And aside from that, they're also extremely expressive about their opinions, so there are plenty of Real Housewives gifs that speak to the struggle of planning a Halloween costume.
For people who are into the holiday, Halloween can be a lot of (unnecessary) stress. And if you watch any of the Real Housewives shows, you know that these ladies really live for special events and that none of them just simply put on an outfit or costume. I doubt that any of these people are crafting their own Halloween costumes, but it's also obvious that none of them are just putting on an outfit without any prior thought.
Even if you're still brainstorming your Halloween look, you can at least feel better knowing that the Real Housewives understand the thought process you're going through. If you are super into Halloween, these Real Housewives moments should really speak to you.
