Question Halloween 'Curse those sexy costumes' for the Ladies

Irish Times Article, 'Curse those sexy costumes'

Dressing up for Halloween used to mean lots of black binbags and plastic fangs – now it’s just an excuse to wear as little as possible. Never mind the bunny ears this year, writes ROSEMARY MAC CABE , just lash on the fake blood ALL GIRLS want to dress sexy, don’t they? So Halloween is the one night of the year you can dress as sexy as you want, and you can go, ‘come on, it’s Halloween’ so people don’t think you’re a total slut.”



Of course, the saddest thing for women is, men don’t seem to feel this pressure to “look sexy”. What are my male friends dressing up as? Most of them are not, although one is going as a pirate (yes, ladies, not a “sexy pirate”, just a pirate, eye patch and all), another as a Turkish warlord (don’t ask) and another as a jaundiced Vietnam veteran (no, I don’t know either). Nary a sequin to be seen, and not a whole lot of spending involved either.



Surely this one night of the year might be better spent attempting to be clever and creative, rather than squeezing yourself into a black bodysuit and pinning bunny ears on top of your head. (Although, sadly, thanks to Louis Vuitton, said ears are no longer confined to costumery and are in fact accepted as everyday dress.)

I suspect the fancy aspect of Halloween costumery has come in tandem with the commercialisation of “the holiday”, as our American friends call it. Halloween is now “merchandised” from late September just as how, on November 1st, we can expect the Christmas lights to begin their lava-like spread throughout the country.

99.9% of women who dress up this halloween will go as sexy I imagine. I wonder is there any PRoC ladies NOT going to go sexy and instead go scarey?

Below is Watermelon in her 'Kiss me i'm Oirish' getup for this year.



Fancy a perve, all costumes from http://howcool.com/catalog/index.php...FUQA4wodBnpNMg

I hate how all the costumes are 'sexy this and sexy that'. Everyone ends up in the same costumes and they pretty much always looks cheap. Big fan of spooky halloween. Going to Edinburgh this year doing lots of ghost tours and got a big black robe with a giant hood and purple inside. Looks great! Can't wait
