When it comes to costumes for Halloween, women have to have a plan. Where do you want the night to go? Do you want people to leave the party respecting your clever wit, or envying you cleavage? Do you want the guys to respect your love of movies, or love the way you're moving? Do you want to go with the trends, or do you want to stand out as something off the wall?
