How to dress for Halloween when you’re kind of old and out of the loop with most current tv shows and other popular memes? Our solution was to dress as characters from a much older show - Northern Exposure, specifically - one of my all-time favorites. The advantage to dressing like characters from a show that ended 16 years ago is that no one else will be wearing your same costumes. The disadvantage is that all night long people will be at a loss when it comes to figuring out who you’re being. Over and over, after receiving many blank stares, you will have to explain, “We’re being Maggie O’Connell and Dr. Joel Fleischman! From Northern Exposure?” Next year: Melissa and Gary from Thirtysomething.
