I reached out to entertainment, pop culture, and lifestyle expert Mike Sington to get his take on why so many of us enjoy dressing up as our beloved stars and the pressure that celebrities face to come up with a great costume for Halloween. Scroll on down for Bored Panda’s full interview with Hollywood’s Ultimate Insider!

Celeb expert Mike, from LA, told Bored Panda that stars are “under quite a bit of pressure” to come up with great costume ideas. It’s not all just glitz and glamor—there’s some serious planning and preparation involved.

“They know it will generate a guaranteed photo that will be splashed all around the world. Plus, it’s got to be original and impressive, that’s what their fans are expecting. They don’t want to disappoint them, and it’s a rather easy way for a celebrity to get positive press by showing their fun side,” he told Bored Panda about the advantages of coming up with a creative, fun, impressive costume.

I was curious to find out why so many of us love to dress up as our fave celebrities for Halloween. According to Mike, there are a couple of reasons for this phenomenon. “They either want to honor a favorite celebrity, or they want to have some fun by mocking a celebrity they don’t care for. It’s also actually kind of fun to ‘become’ a celebrity and imagine what their life might be like!”

Mike agreed that many people have a hard time separating actors from the characters they play in movies. “Celebrities know that, and some will accept it and capitalize on it, while others will fight it and try to distance themselves from the characters they play,” the celebrity expert noted how stars can react to this piece of knowledge in different ways.

“Most fans on Halloween are looking at celebrities and their characters as one, and will usually dress as the character, which is probably going to be easier to pull off and the most recognizable of the two!”

This year’s Halloween fell into a bit of a gray area regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. While the danger of getting ill is still ever-present, the continuing vaccination programs have made it a bit safer to go about with ordinary life. ABC7 notes that Halloween participation is rebounding and people are spending more than ever.

However, wearing your Halloween mask is no excuse for not wearing your regular medical mask underneath and maintaining social distancing. It’s fine to have fun, but you can’t throw all the safety precautions out the window—now that would be scary.

October might be the spookiest month of the year, but we often take it for granted. Sure, a lot of us love a good scare from the comfort of our own cozy costume or from our sofas in front of a good horror movie, but we don’t always question why we find it so fun. Not too long ago, I reached out to Doug Murano to learn about why we love horror and scary stories so much. Doug is a writer and a Bram Stoker Award-winning editor, so you know for a fact that horror flows through his veins.

“I suspect that most of us—regardless of our spiritual beliefs—have a longing for something beyond this life. Human beings seem to be pre-programmed with this urge,” writer and editor Doug, the founder of Bad Hand Books, told Bored Panda that many of us yearn to learn more about the supernatural. Real-life is beautiful and interesting, but it often isn’t fully enough. We’re just too curious to sit still and be happy with what we have.

“So much of horror and speculative fiction grapples with death and what happens after we die that I can’t help but believe much of our interest in such stories is an expression of a longing for experiences and existences beyond our perceptions,” Doug explained.

When it comes to creating a truly good scary story, you have to learn to be subtle. Nobody’s afraid of a monster that’s right out in the open. It’s the mysterious, partially shadow-shrouded figures in the dark that get our hairs standing on end, our hearts beating the quickest. Or, as Doug puts it, over-explanation is the antithesis of good horror.

“Great horror stories thread a precarious needle: They maintain a sense of the truly inexplicable while creating a world and a narrative that provides enough answers to ground the story. Over-explanation kills most horror, which is why the shark is scariest when you only see the fin; the alien is most terrifying when it’s lurking in the shadows; the killer is most monstrous when he’s masked,” he told Bored Panda.

“My professional expertise is limited to fiction, but I’ll say this: I’ve seen enough real magic and wonder in the world to make me think twice about whether the supernatural is real—and I think that’s a healthy thing. It’s perhaps less important to believe any given tale than it is to remain open to experiences while leaving room in your head and in your heart for belief,” Doug said.
