It's that time of year when you either indulge in the incredibly spooky or downright spunky. If you're not going solo to Halloween parties this year, you know that you and bae have to take some mandatory pictures of your outfits. Picking out Instagram captions for your Halloween costumes carries the same importance of every other "holiday" we've deemed worthy of celebration on social media.
Of course, the picture has to be just right before you go on posting anything, but the magic happens in the caption. Even if you didn't necessarily coordinate costumes, the fact that you and bae are dolled up is worth a creatively captioned Instagram picture. There are plenty of different avenues you could go down. Focus on the relationship and make it cute, or focus on creepy qualities of Halloween and toy with the dark side of love.
There are no restraints when it comes to Halloween, which is why people indulge in it so much. For one day, you can be anything you want to be, no matter how disturbing or unusual. Take that same mentality and apply it to your Instagram game. We all know that if anything cool or interesting has happened in your life, it didn't really happen if it's not documented on some social platform, right? I mean, everyone already knows you and bae are picture-perfect, but send them over the edge with a few home-run words to seal the deal.
