Adults enjoy wearing costumes just as much as the kids, if not more.  Long Island has tons of grown-up fun for Halloween.
For one night, everyone gets to play pretend.  Annual events surrounding this holiday are a unique exercise in self-expression – one night of the year that you can dress, act, be an entirely different person –- and leave your own identity at home for a while.
Some tips for selecting a costume are connecting to popular culture, wear a couples costume, wig out with a wig and most of all be comfortable.  There are scary costumes, fun costumes, and sexy costumes -- some are even all three. Remember to try sitting and dancing in your costume before your night out.
Put on your best costume and head out for some adults-only fun with these bewitching events.
