This weekend is Halloween and if you don’t know what you want to be yet, we’re here to help you out. HollywoodLife got expert tips on what you can dress up as and how you can get it shipped to you ASAP.
Halloween has completely snuck up on us and we are officially freaking out. With the holiday coming up this weekend, for those of you who don’t have a costume yet — do not freak out, because we have you covered. Luckily, Chad Horstman, CEO of Yandy, spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively and gave us some amazing tips for this year’s Halloween!

Chad was full of amazing ideas and even better advice.
“Somewhat surprisingly, our Yandy exclusive “What is the Color?” Dress costume is our #1 seller this year. It’s based off of that viral craze a few months back where nobody could agree on what color #TheDress was; blue and black or white and gold? We split the dress down the middle with each color combination and we’ve sold thousands. It’s been a huge hit.”
As for what we can expect to see on everyone this year: “We’ve seen a huge upturn in pop culture inspired costumes this year. It seems our customers want to be relevant, funny and of course, sexy this year. Among our top five selling costumes are The Dress; Cecil the Lion – of which we’re donating 20% of the proceeds, essentially all of our profits, to a wildlife preservation charity; and Donna T. Rumpshaker – a fun twist on a certain mogul turned presidential candidate. Some more traditional looks, like Little Red Riding Hood and our Dark Angel costumes, round out the top five.”
Everyone can relax and stop freaking out now if they don’t have a costume yet because Yandy has it covered. “We always make sure to provide great, last minute shipping options like $8.95 2-day shipping when ordering before 5 pm PST today (Wednesday), or $11.95 overnight delivery when ordering by 5 pm PST tomorrow (Thursday). With Halloween on a Saturday this year, we’re even offering select zip codes Saturday delivery for $19.95 when ordering before 3 pm PST the Friday before Halloween. Some of our customers can’t get around to ordering early for one reason or another, and we need to be there to help them make it work regardless.”
For those of you who want to transform what you have at home into a sexy costume, “It’s really pretty easy because anything goes on Halloween. A lot of people just buy wigs, accessories and costume makeup from our site, knowing there are many ways to showing up looking great on Halloween.”
“Honestly, the least stressful thing is just opening a package with a great ready-to-wear costume inside. People are so busy that searching for every last little detail wears on them. With some costumes as low as $30 and our super fast shipping, picking out your favorite look from our site would be the easiest and least stressful way to go when shopping at the last minute.”
“Just like everyday wear, it’s important to match the right undergarments with a sexy costume. At Yandy we offer both lingerie and costumes so that shoppers can get everything they need in one convenient place. If someone is looking to buy a low cut or strapless costume, for example, we have the perfect bras to accompany that.”
He left us with some amazing advice, “The best tip I can give is to make sure you have fun with it. Halloween is supposed to be fun and we try to exude that with our costumes. Whether you go simple with a fun pair of cat ears and a black long sleeve top or you buy the most deluxe costume on our site and are decked out head to toe, as long as you’re having fun with it, you’ll be the biggest hit at the party.”
