Sexy Halloween Costumes! A Mother’s Dilemma

Sexy Halloween Costumes! A Mother’s Dilemma

It’s the one time of year that women can dress like strippers and men can dress as women and no one bats an eyelid. Frankly, I think there is an awesome element to that.

However, the lack of diversity is where my issues lie. Disney Princess as an adult? Here are your top choices…

I soon realized you can get ANY costume in a sexy version.

Here are the most entertaining:

There was a boardroom of professionals pitching this costume in the most serious way….the scariest part is that the people in charge totally bought this as a marketable product….which leads me to question why they have that job and I don’t.

And they even added into the design Jiminy Cricket making a pass at Pinocchio…..yeah, that’s not creepy at all…

Finally They came up with a provocative tomato product ensemble. I know you probably were thinking the same thing as me- “what took so long?”

Well, this is a great idea for a costume. Sure, let’s just make fun of a disease that is generated by our oversexed society that objectifies women’s bodies- and to make it even more of a knee slapper, let’s have the industry that is causing these women to starve themselves until the go into complete organ failure,  produce an outfit that mocks the disease in a “sexy” way. Awesome.

    I like how they feel the need to write sexy in front of of the costume, just in case we couldn’t figure it out…

    I am so glad I have a boy and not a little girl. The oversexing of costumes isn’t limited to adults. Looking at the costume selection for little girls makes me shiver.

    Thank you and Thank you! I have wound up making my daughter’s costumes because as soon as they’re out of toddler wear the costumes are too much for me! Ugh!

    The worst part is that my plus sized booty would NEVER fit into those, even if they had their boobs and thighs covered.

    I have four daughters, none are sluts nor aspiring to be sluts. What happened to Halloween? When and why did it become the holiday to degrade girls?

      I can’t figure out what happened to halloween. I just want to be a legitimately scary looking witch without my butt-hole showing. Is that really too much to ask?

    Check out this site for a comparison of a “body bag” costume for men vs women. It’s disturbing.

    Another thought – As women’s costumes reduce in size (and therefore fabric) why do they keep getting more expensive?

      I know…I can’t believe people think that is okay to sell. I thought for sure it would be pulled this year. There is a plus sized version as well. I don’t know if that makes me feel better or worse.

    I totes agree. I have lamented the same, year after year. However, having once worked in customer service for a costume company, I found a couple of ways to get around the “sexy” problem.

    1. Do a search for “Renaissance” or “Historical” or “Goddess” you will find more coverage.
    2. One can also do a search for “Plus” size, and although I do not agree with the industry standard, (I think they call many normal sized women plus sized), it may give you more choices.
    3. “Cosplay” costumes over a wide variety of themes, I have seen leather like catwoman type costumes, to hoop skirted bow dresses, and everything in between. Some costumes are “sexy” but many more are not. Even if you do not know the cosplay character, you can still get a great costume this way.
    4. One of my favorites is to look up simple home made costumes or go to the thrift store!
    happy costume hunting!

      LOL I love your tips!

      The funny thing is if you want to be the regular version of the costume it seems to need to shell out way more money because they are almost theater quality. You are out of luck if you want a cheap rayon costume without cleavage.

    And once again I am wondering what exactly is sooo offensive about breastfeeding in public after seeing these costumes? Hmm, could it be cause I dont have my butt hanging out as well as my boob? And Anna Rexia should be discontinued. It is so sad what people find humorous, I found it totally inappropriate.

      LOL Yes, you can have you butt and boobs showing as long as they are for the pleasure of men. Didn’t you know that? Feeding a baby? INAPPROPRIATE! ;-)

      Yes, I thought for sure anna rexia would be discontinued this year. Looks like it still is selling.

    I still think sexy Erney (Sesame Street) is the creepiest… Something about the boy’s suspenders and bare midriff…

    As for me, I think I’ve got my cheapest and easiest, costume of my lifetime this year. I picked up a beard for $6 at the Halloween store… I’m pairing it with an old bride’s maid dress… “Bearded Circus Lady.” Done. Husband already has a handlebar mustache (honestly) and from our wedding, a top hat, so he’s going as the ringmaster, and we’re dressing the little one as a bear. Easiest family themed costume ever.

      Ohhh sexy Ernie!!! Noo…bert is bad too…

      LOL I was thinking about being a garbage bag this year to save money. Like this costume, only without any of the creative part (just a black trashbag and a string…and maybe stuff it with newspaper)…

      Yours sounds way better. Repurposing an bridesmaid dress makes me laugh. Most only would work for halloween costumes!
