Halloween is the one day of the year when we can dress up as whoever we want to be, head out into the world and celebrate with other adults dressed as pop culture icons, superheroes, world leaders and more. As we grow older, it can get harder for us to get out of the house — but you should never let this get in the way of your Halloween spirit. From classic selections to new-age picks, check out this year’s top 4 Halloween costumes for seniors:
- Popeye and Olive Oyl
How could we not start with this classic couple? Popeye the Sailor first appeared in a comic strip in 1929, gaining popularity and strength from his obsession with canned spinach. His iconic, flapper-type counterpart, Olive Oyl, is commonly regarded as Popeye’s girlfriend thanks to the television shows and movies that followed the comic strip. You and your costume partner will be the hit of the neighborhood when you step out as this dynamic duo!
2. Wonder Woman
Anxiously awaiting the release of the sequel to the box-office hit “Wonder Woman?” We are, too! Get a jump on the premiere by sliding on a pair of golden cuffs and red boots, and dress up as everyone’s favorite Amazonian warrior this Halloween! There are tons of different Wonder Woman costumes available at local Halloween stores and online, and you can even get creative and make your own!
3. Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II recently stepped into the international spotlight once again, attending the historic wedding of her grandson, Prince Harry, as he said his “I dos” to American film actress Meghan Markle. So, there is no greater power move this Halloween than dressing up as the Queen herself! This costume is perfect regardless of whether you plan to go out for a night on the town or stay in and relax this Halloween! Either way, put on your favorite hat or fascinator and don’t forget to boil up a pot of evening tea!
4. Uncle Sam
Legendary Uncle Sam is known for personifying the United States beginning during the War of 1812 and is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer who supplied beef to the U.S. army during the war. You probably know Uncle Sam best as a white-haired elderly man wearing a red, white and blue suit, bow tie and top hat. If you do decide to dress up as Uncle Sam this year, promise us that you’ll point to at least one person and sternly say, “I WANT YOU!”
We hope everyone has a great, safe night playing dress-up! Stay dry while you’re all dressed up with Wearever incontinence undergarments for women and men, available in styles protecting from light, moderate and heavy leakage. Happy Halloween!
