Griff and Rick’s Tricks and Treats

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Our cover models, Griff and Rick, usually have a few tricks up their sleeves for Halloween, and even though this year may look very different, they still get into the spirit of Halloween. We caught up with the social media stars to talk about how they will treat Halloween this year.

Following your social media, it is obvious that you guys really enjoy dressing up and celebrating Halloween? What does the holiday mean to you?

We think it’s mostly just the sense memories and nostalgia from childhood. The weather, changing leaves, carving pumpkins, scary movie marathons with friends, planning costumes, the candy. And for one night, allowing yourself to become whoever (or whatever) you want! There’s a freedom and whimsy to it that’s just so fun! And did we mention the candy? 

With an ongoing pandemic, a movement to end social injustice, and the impending election, one could say that we live in scary times already! Do you think that Halloween will be less scary this year because of all of that?

Not at all. All of the things you mentioned are part of our current reality. Halloween is the opposite. It’s about creating a non-reality. A fantasy. It’s an escape, and what BETTER time to escape reality for one night than Halloween! 

So now that we have established that Halloween is going to look vastly different this year, how do you plan to celebrate it?

We haven’t decided what we want to do yet? We have a few costume ideas on the back burner! We will be doing a countdown with movie trivia and Halloween-themed photos on our IG, though. 

Where do you come up with the ideas for your creative and sexy costumes?

We try to draw inspiration from things we love. But we always try to take that inspiration and give it a unique Griff and Rick “twist” to make it our own. 

Where can readers see more of you and your dress-up for Halloween inspiration?
