Ooooh. It’s that spooky time of year. The supermarket has pumpkins on offer. Netflix is showcasing horror movies. For some fucked up reason idiots are dressing up as clowns to scare people in the streets. And apparently everything is completely sexy and has the ability to become a risqué and revealing sexy Halloween costume- even if it’s not in the least bit scary.
You can be sure wherever you end up on October 31st skin will be on display as if we’re not descending into the chilly winter months. To quote the iconic movie Mean Girls ‘Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it’ and though I’m not an advocate for slut shaming it certainly does seem this day gives, particularly us girls, an excuse to sex it up in scary, slutty and strange ways.
Now 2016 has been in its self a pretty scary year, but fear not, this crap year actually lends itself to the most peculiar of sexy Halloween costumes. Two of my personal favourites being sexy Donald Trump, which consists of a pretty special wig, navy hot pants and a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap. I’m sure this is something Trump thoroughly approves of himself.
My other favourite comes from the strangest meme of the year, sexy Harambe. Yes that gorilla has gone from sad news story, to historic meme, and now has been immortalized in the form a body con dress, complete with fluffy gorilla hat and booties and a banana bag. Talk about scary. But fear not, you don’t want to be the same as everyone else rocking the Harambe or Trump look there’s plenty more to choose from. Why not be a sexy pizza slice or corn on the cob. You could be a sexy SpongeBob or lobster. Why, it’s Halloween and nothing is immune to being transformed into lingerie-esque lycra masterpieces, and that in itself can be quite frightening.
Truly Halloween is the only night of the year where just about anything gets its opportunity to have some time in the sexy spotlight. You thought a crayon couldn’t be sexy, let me prove you wrong. You thought pumpkins were too round and orange to be erotic, think again. Witches and Vampires are so over done why not find the most unexpected thing you can and make it your sexy Halloween showstopper.
So would you say sexy Halloween costumes are a trick or a treat? Considering how we’ve evolved from perhaps a sultry zombie, to straight up dressing like playboy bunnies or vampy nurses, to now literally sexing up scary presidential candidates, it makes you wonder what’s next in the in line to get Halloween treatment, it seems you don’t even have to be scary at all anymore. But then again now I think about it, what is scarier than Donald Trump.
